Title: "Setup" is greyed out in "Page Setup" (Can't adjust margins) - Visio 2007 & 2010
Post by: AngelaNicole on March 27, 2015, 01:54:49 PM
Hello all

I'm the trainer for Visio at my company. There have been a few instances where an associate is unable to adjust the page margins for their drawing because the "Setup" button in the "Page Setup" dialog box is greyed out. It seems to be a random bug, but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced and/or solved this issue.


Also, we access both versions of Visio through a company RD Web Access system, so I'm not sure if that is affecting it. (We have also tried logging out of our RD Web Access instance and back in)

Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

As you've had no other reply yet ...  I've never seen or heard of anything like this. I'll assume it must be something to do with your RD (Remote Desktop - I had to look it up) web access. Are you using Sharepoint?

My guess would be that you have some printer-connection issues with RDP (printers are not connected).
RDP has an option (checkbox) to connect local resources (like printers). Maybe that's it?

I.e. the "Setup" button is grayed out when there are no printers on the computer.

Thanks all. I was guessing that it had something to do with the remote desktop connection as well because I could not find any information on the internet regarding the same issue.

We do use a SharePoint, but our Remote Desktop Web Access is not hosted through the SharePoint site.

I think the printer connections makes sense, and I will definitely test the theory!

Thanks much!

THANK YOU!!!

It was indeed that some of my associates profiles on our remote desktop web access do not have printers connected to the Visio application!

Thanks again,
