thanks for fixing all my issues so far. I’m finally able to generate Visio diagrams
Which brings me to my next question. When generating a Vision diagram, I need about 5-10 master shapes which are currently part of a big VSS file which contains my library of about 600 master shapes. Loading that VSS file takes quite a bit of time though (up to a minute) and is rather inefficient if I only need a handful of shapes out of all those master shapes. Is there a better way to load only the shapes that I need?
- Save to master shape objects to SQL database and retrieving them later
Serialization seems to be impossible right now (according to some forum posts)
- Keeping the VSS file in the IIS web server memory
Not really an option, since there is a memory limit on the IIS server which is way below my requirements
Unfortunately, reducing the number of shapes or reducing the number of sub-shapes isn’t an option either and the shape library will probably grow in the future.
