Summary

This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Visio 2013 hotfix package that is dated September 9, 2014.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you add a page in Visio 2013, and then you add a shape to the page. After that, you undo the add shape and the add page operation, and then you redo the add page and the add shape operation. In this situation, the shape is not re-added. Additionally, there is no error message when this behavior occurs.

  • Assume that you add over 500 stencils (including the built-in stencils) in Visio 2013. In this situation, you might be unable to open some stencils. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

    Visio internal error: #2200

    Action 0:???


    Note After you install this update, you can add at most 1000 stencils in Visio 2013.

  • Assume that you import some data from an external data source to a Visio drawing in Visio 2013, and then you close all the stencils in the drawing. In this situation, when you drag any data from the External Data window to the drawing, Visio might crash.
