Specs: Windows 7

When i open a file that was created as "detailed network diagram", it open itself as "basic network diagram".
So if i need to add shapes from "detailed network .." i have to copy the diagram to a new file opened as "detailed network ..".

So how to opening directly files as "detailed network diagram"

Thanks

Why not just open the "detailed network Diagram" shapes group once the file is opened?

I agree that Visio should auto-open the shape groups that were open when the file was saved, but in this case, re-opening the shape groups manually sounds like an easier workaround then copying the entire diagram into a new file.

Also, what version of Visio are you running?

Hello
Hello,

I use Visio Standart 2010.

The problem is that i didn't find the way to open it when the diagram is opened.
On the right i have the shape bar, with in the menu "more shapes", there there is "network" but in the network section the "detailed network..." doesn't appear!! :-\
I think this should be the place where i can find it, no?

Bye.

✔ Best Answer

That is correct.

Once you have the file opened, you should be able to go to the Shapes Sidebar, then select More Shapes. From the pop-out list, select the Network heading and Detailed Network Diagram should be one of the selections.

If it is not appearing in the list, I would recommend a repairing the Visio installation as those are built in shapes files that are installed with Visio by default.
