Title: converting from .vsd to .vsdm or .vsdx crushes my connectors
Post by: novski on May 18, 2015, 09:33:25 AM
Hi
I've been forced to change my Visio 2010 to Visio 2013.
Now i have a massive problem with my connector.
If i save the files to a .vsdx or .vsdm version, the file and its shapes look exactly as i had it in the .vsd file bevor.
But as i reopen the file, the connectors crush in a strange way. (I will attach printscreens of one of the pages and a closeup of the connection)
It is as if the connecton is still there but the line is going someware else...
If i then hit shift &  any cursor, it goes back to its initial position. So i first thaught ok i just select the whole page hit shift & left cursor and then save it, but that doesn't help. By reopening the file it is crushed again. 
Does anybody have an idea where that is cooming from?
Thanks a lot
Novski

nobody have an idea what cold make my Connectors crush?

Does anybody have experience with large .vsd files used/converted to .vsdx/.vsdm?
I also have the problem that since Visio 2013 Pro is installed it crashes the application and restarts by it self.
Especialy by saving.

Thanks for any comments...

Hi
I found two differencies in the Documents i need to repair.

in the Developer Tab under Properties i can find a Row called: Mode
This Row is different to the old document. it shows 0 - visDocModeRun instead of visDocModeDesign

but if i change it and save it doesn't stay. it always goes back to visDocModeRun.

How can i change hat cell?

Thanks
Novski

check in shapesheetâ„¢ of page cell DynamicsOff, change that value to FALSE
This way originally posted (http://visio.getbb.ru/viewtopic.php?p=5952#p5952) by Shishok in our russian forum.

Or try to use this master (link for download (http://visio.getbb.ru/download/file.php?id=351))
1. if on your PC macros are disabled drop master from this stencil to each page of document
2. in another case just open stencil

Hi Surrogate, thanks for your reply.

I clicked on the page of my dokument and checked but DynamicsOff is already "False" same on the Background of that document.
Are you sure that that the visDocMode"RUN/DESIGN" is stored as DynamicsOff in the shapesheet?

i am not sure, at my case strange connector behaviour repair after change DynamicsOff! i think DynamicsOff Cell can't change mode…

How you check difference with versions 2010 and 2013 ?

OK I don't know where to go with bug reports but, i think i found a bug, that seams to be new in Visio 2013 (15.0.4711.1000) 32Bit

User.CellA=ANGLEALONGPATH(Geometry1.Path,1,)

If i read out this value of a straight connector. This Value will be 0 as long as i don't reopen that file. By reopening that Value can varry.
It seams to me as the angle it takes is about to where the connecton Starts.
same for :

User.CellB=ANGLEALONGPATH(Geometry1.Path,0,)
This angle seams to point to where the Connector ends.

>The strange thing is that this only hapens to some connectors. And if i Select the connected shape and drag it only some pixels it snaps back to the correct value =0. -no angle becaues its a straight line.

Does anybody maybe remember some bugs like this in a older Verion of Visio?
I can certanly say that the last Version of Visio 2010 (don't know the Versionnr.) i woked with didn't have that problem...

Best Regards
Novski

PS: seams like the Programs and Features is listing a different Version Number: 15.0.4569.1506
