Chapter 17. Using CAD Drawings in Visio > Modifying Inserted CAD Drawings

Modifying Inserted CAD Drawings

When you import a CAD drawing, you can modify it in certain ways, even though the image is for display only. You can drag Visio shapes onto it, rescale it, crop and pan it, and hide and show layers and levels within it.

Tip

View CAD file information in Visio

Visio stores the file name and timestamp of an inserted CAD drawing as custom properties for the inserted object. To display these properties, right-click an inserted drawing, and select View, Custom Properties Window. The Custom Properties window displays the full file name and path as well as the date and time when the CAD drawing was last updated.
