Correcting failed links between programming objects after upgrading files from .vsd to .vsdx
TAC IA Series, EcoStruxure Building Operation
- I/A Series WorkPlace Tech
- Building Operation Workstation (WorkPlace Tech Editor)
After existing .vsd files from pre-WorkPlace Tech 5.10 versions can have corrupted links that stay red when programming objects are added or modified.
This video demonstrates how to correct binding failures that can occur when existing Visio drawings are converted from .vsd to .vsdx format when upgrading to Workplace Tech 5.10 and EBO 4.0 and newer WorkPlace Tech Editor.
Note: The objects in the original drawing will no longer show a Master Shape reference (below)
The frame around the object appears a little different as well. The Mega Master will not be changed so this has no effect on the performance of these objects.
