Annotate VSTM Formats in Python
Native VSTM document annotation using server-side Python APIs.
Steps for annotation VSTM Files in Java
A basic document annotation and concatenating with
APIs can be done with just few lines of code.
- Load VSTM 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 VSTM Files - Python
diagram = Diagram( "f.vstm"); 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 APIAspose.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.
VSTM What is VSTM File Format
Files with VSTM extension are template files created with Microsoft Visio that support macros. Unlike VSDX files, files created from VSTM templates can run macros that are developed in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code. A template file can be created in order to provide basic settings of the document that can be utilized to generate further documents with these settings. 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.Read More
