Hey Ken


   I have a laziness question: Press the F3 key, and the Format Shape window opens.  But what key closes it?  Too often I hit F3 when I meant F2, and I'd like a solution that does not involve touching the mouse.  I've looked around and hacked at it, but to no avail.  Any ideas?

   Thanks in advance,

   - Ken

Hey Ken

   Dozens of views and no replies...  Guess I'm not surprised -- even Application.Windows.Count doesn't know anything about it!  Looks like I'm outta luck.  So much for laziness.

   Ah, well... my arm could use the exercise anyhow.  NOT!  ;- )

Hi, Ken !

I don't see your thread before :(
I am very lazy too, i also bored with this issue. I found that it is not window, it is pane.
And we have no way to close it with hotkey.

Hey Ken


   I wouldn't say it's a pane, but rather a pain!  ;- )

   Regardless, thanks for the info.  When I was originally looking for a solution, I did not think to include the term "pane".  But searching on that, I did find that Word VBA supports it, but not Visio VBA.  What a pain.

to appear:
FN key + F3  = format shapes window appears.

Shift + C = format shapes window closes.
