VisiClone is a great tool — I can’t imagine life without it!”

VisiClone is one of our most popular tools, and for good reason.  You can use VisiClone to create advanced shapes whether you possess modest Visio skills or you are an experienced shape developer.  You select the shape geometry, appearance, behaviors, and data from a specified shape and VisiClone copies it all to one or more additional shapes.  It enables you to quickly choose and copy entire ShapeSheet rows and sections from one shape to another, thus duplicating the characteristics defined by those cells. 
To make the most of VisiClone, all you need is a basic understanding of the ShapeSheet and you are on your way to creating sophisticated shape behavior.  You do not need to know how to program the ShapeSheet with formulas to achieve great results because you are copying formulas that already exist.
The result is significant savings in time and effort, especially when a new shape requires characteristics that have previously been created for an existing shape.  VisiClone is indispensable for anyone building custom Visio shapes, no matter what your skill level.
  • Straightforward interface enables quick setup of the copy operation
  • A familiar Windows Explorer like interface makes choosing the “source” and “destination” shapes a snap
  • Characteristics of any shape or sub-shape on the drawing can be copied
  • Any combination of sections and rows of the ShapeSheet can be copied
  • Rows may be re-ordered during the copy process as specified
  • The copy operation can be specified to either “Append” or “Overwrite” the data in the destination shape
Example 1
You are creating 20 Visio shapes that represent your company's products.  You would like each of these shapes to have the following characteristics:
  • Identical Custom Properties fields (Manufacturer, Part Number, etc.)
  • The shapes must grow proportionally if the user resizes them in the horizontal or vertical dimensions
  • The text font and style must be identical for all shapes, Ariel Bold 12 pt
You could create all of these characteristics manually for each shape using Visio menus and/or the ShapeSheet if you are comfortable with that.  Or, you can use VisiClone to make this task much quicker and easier:
  • Draw your first shape and then...
    • Define the Custom Properties
    • Set Format Protection to lock the aspect ratio
    • Format the text to Ariel Bold 12 pt
  • Draw the remaining 19 shapes and then...
    • Start VisiClone
    • Select the first shape as the Source
    • Select the remaining 19 shapes as the Destinations
    • Choose the ShapeSheet sections to copy
      • Custom Properties
      • Protection
      • Character
    • Click OK
The result?  VisiClone performs all of the operations simultaneously within seconds.  In less than a minute, you have assigned identical characteristics to all 20 shapes!
Example 2
Here's another example that includes VisiClone screens for a simple project to copy Custom Properties (text data fields associated with the shape), Actions (such as displaying custom right-click menus), and Events (such as double-click the shape to show the Custom Properties box).
VisiClone Shape Tab
Select a source shape and one or more destination shapes to copy behaviors from one shape to others.
VisiClone Sections Tab
Select the ShapeSheet Sections you want to copy to the destination shape(s).
VisiClone Rows Tab
If a ShapeSheet section has multiple rows, you can select all of them to copy or just the ones that you need.
When you click OK, the destination shapes will take on the behaviors copied from the source shape... that's all there is to it.
