Reducing first Save Time?

Post by YmNve » Wed, 06 Oct 2004 04:45:04

Can anyone tell me why it takes so long to save a Visio drawing the first
time? And, is there any way to reduce the save time. I automating the
generation of many diagrams. It seems to take forever to do a first time
save. I have lot's of disk space and memory. The problem only occurs for
some reason on the initial save of the diagram. Why is this? How can I
shorten the save time?

Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Visio version?
Are you saving as .vsd or .vdx ?
Are you saving to local disk or network drive?

Another thing to check:

File > Properties > Checkbox: Save Preview Picture

If you uncheck this, it might make the save speed faster, and will reduce
the file size. But I would think this would effect *every* save.

Just an idea...


Hope this helps,
