    Missing 'Label Shapes' Add-On (2003 sp2)

    Hello,

    In the Visio help file it says I can label shapes using an add-on:
    Tools>Add-ons>Building Plan>Label Shapes

    However there is no 'Building Plan' option in the menu. How can I add on these add-ons?

    Thanks in advance
    Adrian

    Hi,
    Does the steps in this MS Page help. Shape Labels .
    Also make sure that you assigned custom properties to the shapes and that the shapes are selected.
    I cannot confirm these steps as I currently dod not have access to Visio.
    Regards,
    Rudi

    A comparison of Visio versions on MS website shows many of the Building Plan templates are not installed in Visio Standard. Having said that, the addon appears to work independently of these templates.

    Is it possible that this addon is not available in your version of Visio? Which version of Visio do you have installed? I have that option and have installed Visio Professional 2003 (11.3216.5703)
