Annotate VSS Formats in Python
Native VSS document annotation using server-side Python APIs.
How to Annotate VSS Files Using Python
In order to annotate VSS file, we’ll use
API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use conversion API for Python platform. You can download its latest version directly from
Steps for annotation VSS Files in Java
A basic document annotation and concatenating with
APIs can be done with just few lines of code.
- Load VSS 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.
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:
- Install Aspose.Diagram for Python from pypi, use command as:
$ pip install aspose-diagram.
Annotate VSS Files - Python
diagram = Diagram( "f.vss"); ans = diagram.getPages().get(0).getPageSheet().getAnnotations() an = ans.get(0) ans.remove(an) diagram.save("outpath_with_filename", Aspose.Diagram.SaveFileFormat.VSDX);

VSS What is VSS File Format
VSS are stencil files created with Microsoft Visio 2007 and earlier. A relatively new file format is .VSSX that was introduced with Microsoft Visio 2013. Stencil files provide drawing objects that can be included in a .VSD Visio drawing. Microsoft Visio itself is known for creating drawing elements such as collection of shapes, connectors, flowcharts, network layout, UML diagrams, software diagrams, database models, objects mapping and other similar information. It also has rich conversion features of Visio documents to other file formats such as PNG, BMP, PDF and others. Visio is available for both Windows and Mac OS.Read More
