Does anyone know how to copy the information from the columns pane in the Database Properties window of a table entity in Visio?
Specifically on the columns page, I would like to select all rows (all columns) and copy the contents (including the notes column) to my clipboard for further use in let's say a document.
I can copy each individual cell in that pane, but not the whole selection.
Thanks for any tips.
I'm pretty sure it can't be done, and in my view this is appallingly bad GUI design/usability. As Gift said, you have to write program to get this information.
You could of course try using dump screen to get an image, cropping it to the boundaries you want, and trying to read it with OCR software - but I wouldn't rate your chances of getting that to work usefully.
