FUCK VISIO!

Select all.
Verify it's selected
Move it all
14 elements detach and stay where they were.
I can move those elements manually to reattach them where they belong.
Save, close, reopen, same problem.

WTF

EVEN WHEN I GROUP THE FUCKING ELEMENTS, THEY COME APART WHEN I MOVE THEM!

This is unacceptable and I'm beyond furious because I need to get this drawing done VERY SOON and manually readjusting a pile of elements every time I try to readjust placement is NOT A PROPER WASTE OF TIME.

This shouldn't happen.

Uhm, that's pretty annoying.

But mine doesn't do that.

I think I exceeded some number of objects in one vsd file. The templates from visiocafe are very very high in objects and making just a single rack can be tens of thousands of grouped objects.

I reverted to an older version and modified that one and got what I needed.

But Visio is always cumbersome. :/

Yeah, that makes way more sense... using it for rack/cabinet design loads up the elements pretty fast. I usually stick to the physical/logical topology diagrams, so I apparently never ran into that issue.

This is one of the many reasons I lurve OmniGraffle. I'm not sure why Visio hates freedom.

Me neither. Probably some sort of scaling limitation. I've looked at various alternatives, and none were suitable (limited templates available). Graffle importing Visio might be awesome, except, you know, I'm still a winders guy.

I should get a Mac on next equipment refresh. One of my bosses did...

[somewhat related] It always amazing me how poorly microsoft applications can function, given their operating environment. It seems to me that they should function pretty much flawlessly and never crash, given that they're built with their own compiler, using their own API, within their own OS and they've been doing it for a quarter of a century. However, I find third-party apps to be far more reliable (in general).

*STAB*
