Creating mechanical engineering stencil options
0 replies , 7/8/2003, 9:32:24 PM
In the Mechanical Engineering Templates, there are menus for existing stencils such as pumps, actuators, cylinders, etc. You just right click on the object and choose an option. When creating your own new stencil on a template, how do you create a new right click menu for different stencil options for that particular stencil?

moving shapes stencil to stencil

I have my own stencil with shapes from the built-in stencils. I take a Process box from one of the built-in stencils into my diagram and add text 'Process' into it. I then insert it into my stencil. Visio automatically names it like 'Master.....' I rename it to Process (which is the same as the text within the shape). The shape name gets saved. When I place this shape into a diagram the 'Process' text inside it doesn't display even though it shows in the stencil. If I name the shape to anything other than 'Process' it works fine ie.when dragged into a diag. the text within the shape is displayed. It seems asthough the text within a shape and the name of the shape cannot be the same. Is this a bug? Sanjay

stencil question
1 replies , 8/15/2003, 5:06:18 PM
Hi, Wondering if anyone can help me with the following question: I have created some custom stencil items that I have placed in the stencil - let's say for example a box. Then I drag and drop these pieces into my visio doc into multiple pages. The question that I have is how do I change this master stencil (for example I now make the box a triangle) and then update all the elements that I have placed already? Any help would really be appreciated. Regards

Where are the stencils?
4 replies , 1/24/2005, 10:42:33 PM
I just upgraded from Visio 10 to Visio 11 Professional. In previous versions, if I open the Stencils dialog, the stencils are categorized into folders. When I try to open a stencil in Visio 11, it first takes me to My Shapes (in which there are no stencils). When I navigate to \Program Files ... \Visio 11\1033, I get a list of all stencils in a single directory and all file names are in 8.3 format. Surely I must have something misconfigured. In the help, it says that certain software stencils are in the Software directory. Where is that? TIA for any help! -Nick

Visio stencils license

I have written a book, and in the book I have several network diagrams, which I drew using Visio. I am not sure I am allowed to use the Visio stencils in publishing, though. I am unable to find any licensing information in the Visio help. How are the Visio's graphic elements licensed? Are there any limitations to how diagrams can be used? Thanks.

How can I change the lines around a square taken from the Basic Shapes templates. I created an organization chart, using basic shapes and added text. Now I need to change the lines on those boxes from single to double.

In Vision 2003 I am looking to use the "Form Shapes" stencil that is in "Forms and Chart Shapes" as referenced in the MS documentation for Visio 2002 but it seems to be among the missing? Is this so and if yes is it available as a download elsewhere?

How to update document stencil master from stencil
0 replies , 7/3/2006, 1:50:02 PM
I am developing a stencil with shapes for our PI diagrams and of course I am getting wishes from my colleagues. Is there a way to update the diagrams my colleagues created with the modified shapes I created in the stencil? I would hate to have to modify the masters of the document stencil in several diagrams. We are using Visio 2003 Pro.

I'm new to Visio 2003. I use the Search for Shapes box to locate a shape. Now, how can I find out which stencil contains the shape? The shape I find has a weird name Database.33. Thanks.

Stencils Disappearing

Very basic question, but very annoying. I'm using 2002. I created a new drawing and am using multiple stencils. When I save the drawing and then open it back up my stencils have disappeared. I have to load them again. I'm sure its a setting somewhere, because I received other drawings from others and their stencils do not disappear??? Help

Stencils in workspace
0 replies , 6/11/2005, 5:37:02 PM
I am running Visio 5 Pro on a W2000 pro network server. All stations have a local copy. When one user is in the program, the next user can open the visio folder, but when the workspace opens, it will not all allow the stencils that are a part of the workspace, to open . I get a msg telling me that there is a sharing violation in relation to the stencils that belong in that workspace. I need to be able to work on 2-3 stations simutaneously, but have the workspace the same on all. Thanks in advance. MP
