The 'Number Shapes' command is 4 sub-menus down the Tools menu.   I would like to create a new item in the Quick Access Toolbar (or some other convenient location) to invoke the 'Number Shapes' function

Go to View -> Addons -> Visio Extras
Select item Number shapes and press right mouse button.
Select first row Add menu to Quick Access Toolbar in context menu.

Thanks. I tried that, but the "Add menu. . ." is greyed out. I am using Visio Professional on Office365.

See attached

Any suggestions on getting the "Number Shapes" directly on the QAT?

At my side - Visio 2019 Proffessional. Please check can you add to QAT some button from ribbon ?

Yes, I can add to the QAT from other buttons on the ribbon.

I did post earlier that I didn't think it was possible but I then deleted it when Surrogate posted. I still don't think it's possible as those ribbon entries are created dynamically from the list of Addons that Visio finds when it starts up.

Sigh  :(

I do have the Add-Ons icon on my QAT. So it saves 1 or 2 keystrokes.

Thanks to all for your help.

Hi, Paul !
You are right, I did not notice that the folder Visio Extras Add-on was added to the QAT, not the only addon Number shapes  :o
