The wireframing template in Visio has a treeview control to that allows you to add and remove items, and set their respective indent levels. By default you can only adjust a single item at a time and even if you create a multiple selection, only the primary item is effected. A forum question asked how you could make a single change to multiple items and I thought I would write a quick bit of code to show how you might go about it.
There was a question on the Visio forum recently on how to modify a built-in shape and I thought I'd jot down a quick walkthrough of how you might approach the problem. In this instance I’m going to change the way the line weight scales, but the principle of how you modify and create your own master will be the same in most cases.
In amongst some of the new changes in Visio 2013 is the addition of a new ShapeSheet cell in the Foreign Image section. Since I looked at image masking a few years ago (as did Chris Roth), I thought it would be interesting to take a look what you can now do with this new cell.
Microsoft released the public preview of the next version of Office yesterday and, of course, that includes Visio. There’s some great new features and functionality coming in this new version, which I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on.
