SYMPTOMS

When you are programming with the Visio Component Object Model (COM), and you select shapes by using the Window.Selection method, it may take a long time for Visio to refresh the window after each selection.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because Visio copies each of the objects in the application window into system memory, and then performs the operation in question on those copies instead of directly on the objects.

This problem is corrected in Visio 2002 Service Pack 2.
