Default Is there any way to copy an entire page?

In Excel 2007, I can right-click on a sheet tab and get the option to copy that sheet in the same or a different workbook. I get everything associated with that sheet, content, settings, variables, etc.



Is there anything like that in Visio 2003?

In Visio 2003, I can right-click the tab and select Insert. That copies the page dimensions, but none of the content including the layers. As far as I can tell, there is no way to copy anything to a different document.

You don't need to right-click on the tab; right-click anywhere on the drawing sheet then paste where you need it. That should work.

Edit: Ooops! I just realized you are working with Version 2003. My response was directed at Version 2010...sorry about that.

I am using Visio 2010 and I wasn't able to use your tip. You mention pasting whereever you want but the question is: how you can COPY a full page (tab) (without performing select all on all the shapes of the page because as Jenniffe said it doesn't include all the setting etc. of the page) and how to paste it in another file not inside an existing page but as a new page?

Well, I just went through the scenario again and it worked for me. I copied as I indicated in the prior post (right-clicked mid-page) then pasted in a MSWord, PowerPoint and another Visio file. Now, of course I would have to modify those pastings within the documents to fit within the specifications of those files but, the copy & paste worked in all instances.

I do not know what the end result of your need is but, functionally, it works...just need to adjust to your needs.

I want to copy the page itself and not all the item collection that the page include.
In your way:
I don't copy the name of the page (tab's name), I need later to type it outside the copy process
and not the page settings- for example if I defined some page sizes in the original visio file it is not migrated to the visio file where I pasted.

Okay, I see. I misread the original issue. If you are wanting to copy the entire parameters of the drawing (page setup, scale, et al) I am not so sure that can be done...but, I have been wrong before. If it can, I would be interested in finding out as well.

Default Copying Pages in Visio

There is a way to get close to what you want. But you will not be able to get a copy you can alter (while leaving the original as it was). This workaround is based on creating background pages that build as "children/ parent" items. This takes some planning/ forethought.

First, how do Background pages work?

Right-click on a tab (bottom of the screen) and select "Insert". The Page Setup dialogue box will come up with the Page Properties tab selected. The first choice you will have a radio button selection for Foreground or Background. Select Background.

When creating a new page in this way, I recommend naming them based on their "parent" (you can change the name later by double-clicking on the tab, like in Excel).

After "Name", you will see a selector for "Background". This is where you select a slide to build from as the "parent" for this one. The first time you do this there will not be a background slide available (only choice for a background will be "none"). Select "Background" to create the first background page. You will build out a base that other pages will use for their starting point.

(Note, changes in a base "parent" page will propogate to a "child" page if you want to modify them later. But this can frustrate you also if you don't plan it well.) You can build multiple levels of background pages that are "phases" of what you want to copy and reuse.

Second, regarding the exact issue of copying a page, you will
  1. Right-click on an existing page and change it's type at the top of the Page Setup dialogue box to "Background" from Foreground. Select OK.
  2. Insert a new page (Select the tab with an asterisk, or Right-Click on the tab again and select "Insert")
  3. Select "Foreground" page type
  4. Give it a name
  5. On the next selection (Background) , select the dropdown, then the background tab you just created in step 1 above.
  6. Select OK
This will give you an exact copy of the original page. Note, however, that you will not be able to change anything on this "child" page that came from the "parent". You will only be able to add elements to it. (See discussion above on how background pages work.)

Hope that helps.
