Insert into Visio drawing into another Visio 2010 document

    Question

  • I have two Visio 2010 documents. One contains one tab with a floor plan. The other contains multiple tabs, also with floor plans on each tab. I want to incorporate the first Visio document as a new tab in the second document. I've tried CTRL-A, Select->Select All, and Select->Lasso Select to select all on the first document, and then various pasting options into the second: just Paste, Paste Special choosing Microsoft Visio Drawing, and Paste Special choosing Visio Drawing Data. The only paste that "works" is the Paste Special choosing Microsoft Visio Drawing, but doing this seems to insert the floor plan as one entity; I can no longer select items within the floor plan, which I need to do. Simple Paste and Paste Special choosing Visio Drawing Data gets me the floor plan on the new tab, but it also adds in large black lines all over the place. I'm inserting a picture so you can get an idea of what I mean. I can't select this stuff to delete it, and I don't know why it's there. It's not in the original floor plan document. How can I do this? Both documents are linked to data, BTW.

  • Hi Melanie,

    What's the detailed visio file format for two drawing? How did you set it before?

    If all two files are created by yourself with Visio 2010 app, we can just open two drawing, create a new page (tab) for one drawing, go to another drawing, select all shapes and copy it, use normal paste option to paste shapes on the first drawing page. Then you can edit the shapes properly.

    If you still encounter the issue, would you mind to send two sample files to us via GBSD TN Office Information Collection ibsofc@microsoft.com? We would open your problematic file in our test environment. Please involve the thread URL in the email message for easy follow-up :)

  • Hi Winnie,

    I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by the detailed visio file format. They are both vsd files. Neither was created by me. As far as I know they were created by a third party, who I have no access to. The procedure you describe is one I've tried, but as you can see from the screenshot I attached to my query, it's not working. I'm going to send you the two files. Hopefully you can figure out what's going on.

    Thanks so much,

    Melanie Peterson

  • Hi Melanie,

    I have received your email. I find it seems that the two drawings are using the different page setup and Drawing Scale settings. Maybe you can change this setting for drawing to have a try.

  • Hi Winnie,

    Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, changing the Print Setup and Page Size settings in the one-tab document doesn't help. Changing the Drawing Scale from Custom (1 in = 400 in) to No Scale to match the larger document makes the smaller document become blank. Can you think of anything else?

  • Check if there are many layers in the drawing, delete the unwanted layer for the page: In Visio Home tab, in the Editing group, click Layers > Layer properties.
