How Change Default Normal MSWord Template When Using Insert Object in Visio

    Frage

  • Hello Forum!

    We wish to use "Insert>Object>MS Word Document:Create New / Display as Icon" to insert documentation in our Visio process diagrams.  When we perform that action, MS Word applies the default Normal template as expected for the inserted Word object.

    Our question is:  How could we change that default MSWord Normal template for Visio only so that a styled template specific to our process designs is automatically attached when we insert an object?

    I believe the answer is to create a styled template locally and make it available in MSWord where we manually change the template after we insert the MSWord option.  That option is specific to MSWord only with no change to Visio.

    Are there options?  If Registry changes are required for Visio, I am comfortable doing that.

    Many thanks in advance!

  • Hi Allen,

    Based on my knowledge, there is no setting to specify a Word template for Visio when you using Insert > Object > Create New.

    We can create new document in Word with specific template, then insert it to Visio manually as a workaround.

  • As an alternative, we could use the Create From File where we have everything we need in a pre-populated template stylized for our needs.
