RE: Visio Internal Error:#3400 Action 1004: Save



Dear Mr. Rhykhus,

Thanks for your reply. Let me answer your questions:
Question #1:
Does this happen on new/blank Visio drawings (File/New/New Drawing) with
new Equation Editor 3.0 object (Insert/Object.../Equation Editor 3.0) or
just existing drawings with existing equation editor objects?

Answer for Q#1: It happens whenever an equation editor object is
added to the visio file. The visio file can be a new one containing no
equation editor object at all or can be a old one already containing
an equation editor object. In the latter case, the file is created in power
point
with equation editor object and then later pasted in visio as a 'group';
i.e., as
an image in visio.

Question#2:
Are the equations off the page at all, and onto the scratch area (gray
space)?
Answer for Q#2: The equations are on the same page and on the figure
itself. For example, consider naming a specific part in the figure, such as
a node in a circuit, by a symbol, such as 'i'. You place this symbol close to
the specific part of the figure.

Question#3:
Are you using the service packs for Office 2003 and Visio 2003? (currently
service pack 3)
Answer for Q#3: I think I have them installed once I got this error. But I
will
check for this one more time.

I found a way to get around the problem, but I still would like to solve the
my problem.
Way around the problem:
1) Create the figure without any equation editor object in visio.
2) Copy the figure onto powerpoint.
3) Insert the equation editor object to the figure in powerpoint. There is
no problem in this.
4) Group the figure with equation editor objects in powerpoint and copy the
grouped item onto visio
5) Save as grouped item as a visio file or as any other file .tif as you like

I would appreciate if you could reply with your suggestions.

Sincerely,
niceguy
