Imagemap from Visio?


My organization uses Visio. A couple of my users want to generate clickable images (imagemaps) from Visio to navigate in the wiki. Has anyone done something similiar.

I'd like to avoid the Visio plugin if possible. Is the backup svg generation in the Visio plugin usable with visio diagrams with links btw?

I've just achieved this by saving the visio diagram as a web page based upon svg (publish - advanced). That creates a <filename>_svg_1.svg file which I attach to confluence and then embed into the same confluence page using the iframe macro. Job done.

You also need to tick the Details (shape data) tick box to get the hyperlinked imagemap functionality created in visio.

Thank you. I'll test this and hopefully it can replace the visio plugin.

I suggest to vote and watch it to increase the chance to be implemented in the future.

I hope this helps you.
