Freeform line crashes Visio: confirm?
« on: January 13, 2012, 07:36:35 AM »
Hi folks:

I wonder if others could confirm they see the same problem I do with this.

Summary: If A Freeform shape is converted to a group, and then certain edits are performed, Visio hangs.

Attached is a sample drawing demoing this problem, with steps for repro.  (It has a VBA macro for dumping various cells to a file, not required for demo if you want to disable that.)

Thanks!

Had the same problem you noted. By which group command are you using?  When I click the standard "group" button it allows me to delete and edit handles.  But when the "convert to group" command is used I get your error.

Likewise here.  Confirmed with a new shape too.  Regular groupping OK, convert to group bad.

Thanks everyone.  That saves me wondering if it's something peculiar to my setup.

I guess this is a bug.
