Steps for annotation VSDM Files in Java

A basic document annotation and concatenating with

Aspose.Diagram for Python

APIs can be done with just few lines of code.

  • Load VSDM file by creating an instance of Diagram
  • Select Page via its id
  • Get annotation in Page’s Pagesheet
  • Call the remove() method to remove the comment
  • Call the save() method and pass the file name (full path) and format (VSDX) as a parameter.
  • Now you can open and use the VSDX file in Microsoft Office, Adobe PDF or any other compatible program.

System Requirements

Aspose.Diagram for Python is platform-independent API and can be used on any platform (Windows, Linux and MacOS), just make sure that system have Java 1.8 or higher, Python 3.5 or higher.

  • Install Java and add it to PATH environment variable, for example: PATH=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_131;.
  • Install Aspose.Diagram for Python from pypi, use command as: $ pip install aspose-diagram.
 

Annotate VSDM Files - Python

diagram = Diagram( "f.vsdm");
ans = diagram.getPages().get(0).getPageSheet().getAnnotations()
an = ans.get(0)
ans.remove(an)
diagram.save("outpath_with_filename", Aspose.Diagram.SaveFileFormat.VSDX);  
 
  • About Aspose.Diagram for Python via java API

    Aspose.Diagram is a Microsoft Visio document format manipulation API. One can easily load, create, modify, manipulate including daigram elements and convert Visio diagrams to other formats such as PDF, XPS, JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, SVG, EMF and more. It is a standalone API and does not require Microsoft Visio or any other software to be installed.

    VSDM What is VSDM File Format

    Files with VSDM extension are drawing files created with Microsoft Visio application that supports macros. VSDM files are OPC/XML drawings that are similar to VSDX but also provide the capability to run macros when the file is opened. Macros are user defined actions/steps that are developed in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and can be used to perform repeatitive tasks. VSDM file format was introduced with the launch of Microsoft Visio 2013. Visio files are used to create drawings that contain visual objects, flow charts, UML diagram, information flow, organizational charts, software diagrams, network layout, database models, objects mapping and other similar information. Files generated using Visio can also be exported to different file formats such as PNG, BMP, PDF and others.
