Visio - tab names

Post by dasadler »

Is there any way to have a Viso text box display the name of the tab? Other than typing it manually?

Not as far as I know, but I'm not a really proficient Visio user.
Best wishes,

I don't know if this works in earlier versions, but in Vision 2010 you can do it like this:
  • Select the shape
  • On the Insert tab click Field
  • On the left side of the dialog box select Page Info
  • On the right side of the dialog box select Name

It does work in Visio 2007! Thanks a lot.
