Does anyone else find that after a period of time of working in Visio the Undo function stops working? The undo button changes to greyed out. Any ideas why?September 6, 2013 at 9:09 am #8196
I’m using Visio 2010 Premium 32 bit on a Win 7 machine with SIX 6.2.778.0September 6, 2013 at 4:35 pm #8197
Hi, never seen that specific issue but the link below should sort it out.
Let me know if that works.

It happens to me all the time. It does seem tied to the clipboard data. I use a lot of plans in my drawings that can take up a lot of memory. I’ve never been able to pinpoint at what point it goes grey however. Restarting Visio seems to fix it every time.
this is one of my favorite microsoft support helps ever in that it doesn’t help one bit
my favorite part…
To work around this problem, do not use the Undo command to undo the change that you made to the diagram. Instead, manually perform the action that you require. For example, if you added a shape to your drawing and you want to undo this action, manually delete the shape from your drawing page.
yeah as if its that easy.. :silly:September 7, 2013 at 3:47 pm #8199
Dustboy I thought you were joking there until i read that myself! unbelievable they should compile a list of those workarounds and publish it for christmas presents
Thanks for your help. IT sounds like filling the clipboard is doing it so I’ll be restarting Visio a little more oftenSeptember 9, 2013 at 3:08 pm #8200
Yeah I was gobsmacked when I read it too. I couldn’t believe that was the real suggestion at first either… :blink:September 13, 2013 at 7:15 pm #8201
And in keeping with the spirit of compiling that list here is another gem I found today..
My favorite part of this one is that 81 out of 1417 people actually found this helpful?!September 14, 2013 at 8:54 am #8202
