In developing some group shapes earlier, I have just used the rounded rectangle shape from the basic shapes stencil as a subshape. In some diagrams this shape is used more than 2000+ times as a subshape on a single page.

Now looking at this shape in more detail, I see rather than being a 'basic shape' in the shapesheet this is quite the complicated shape! (see screenshot).

Just using a rectangle created from the home ribbon then setting the rounding size creates a much simpler shape from what I see in the shapesheet.

Does using the complicated basic stencil rounded rectangle shape cost significant performance in diagrams with 1000+ shapes or does it really not matter?

Hello Yossi, I hear the problem, best I can think of is the 'trim' the connectors so that they become lines and then cut and past

For me, not being able to rotate complete Visio diagrams without things going haywire is a real shortcoming. I sometimes need to use the same Visio diagram in both and Word and PowerPoint, with the Word documents being portrait and the PowerPoint in landscape. Furthermore, many of my Visio diagrams are too wide to fit nicely on a portrait page so I need to rotate them. So far I have not found a reliable way to do that as connectors seem to reroute themselves haphazardly, even when they are anchored with connection points at both ends.

The current "workaround" is to save the Visio diagrams as images and then paste them in the documents, but that's a lousy way to do it since it is then necessary to keep track of the Visio diagram separately from the Word or PowerPoint file.

I'm using Visio 2013.

I assume the user does not go in to the shapesheet, warn the user in the manual no to.

The user can use the code to change the content protected by the Guard function, FormulaForce can do this.

Double-click on the embedded figure, the visio window will open. You need to check what unit of measure this page has ?
If you selected a shape before copying it, then after pasting it into a word document a new document will be created which will contain only the copied shape. this document will have default settings: units on the page, page names changed to Page-1, etc.

If I put a Guard on the shape data format field, if the user doesn't access the shapesheet is there any other way they can change a lookup list (that is in the format field)?

Thought it would work just like Excel/Word adding object (before Microsoft disabled it for security reasons).
As far as I know there is no such option in visio! Same feature is present in MS Word and MS Powerpoint.

In MS Visio you can only insert as an object the video from the local computer. On the page it is displayed as an icon, the content opens in a separate window in the default video viewer application
