Allow mouse click in Visio presentation to only hyperlinks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts,

    I have one Visio document with 150 pages. All these pages are linked to move from one file to another using hyperlinks to specific shapes. The issue is when I am in presentation mode, if I click on the shape with hyperlink it is going to the linked page but if I click on any other area it goes to the next page.

    I have tried to implement mouse click event in VBA but I am stuck because I can't differentiate if the click was done on shape with hyperlink or any other area.

    Can you please help to find a way to know if the mouse click was on hyperlink or other area?

    Thanks in advance for your help on this.

  • Hi Navin,

    Based on my knowledge, there is no settings in Visio 2010 to disable the left mouse clicking for the next page displaying. Please do the following operations as a workaround:
    1. Press the LEFT ARROW, PAGE UP, or P keys to display the previous page.
    2. Press the RIGHT ARROW, PAGE DOWN, or N keys to display the next page.
    3. Right-click anywhere in the window, and then click Previous Page, Next Page, or point to Go To and click a specific page name.
    4. Click any shapes that have hyperlinks to jump to the link.
