Issues that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • You add a Table Entity shape to a drawing file in Microsoft Office Visio for Enterprise Architects 2005. You then click to select the Req'd check box for a column. When you do this, the Physical Name for that column does not appear bold in the table shape.
  • You open a Visio 2003 drawing file that resides on a network share or on a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services document library. When you do this, a temporary file is created in the temporary folder on the computer. This temporary file is not deleted when you save or close the Visio 2003 drawing file.
