Visio FMPrint Add-on

A recent newsgroup post asked about accessing a network printers management page from a Visio page, so I thought I would share some things that I discovered a while back.  Visio 2003 and Visio 2007 Professional edition include an add-on called FMPrint, which you can use with any shape in Visio.  I used it with some network printer shapes in a couple of add-ins myself. I’m not aware of any public documentation about this handy little add-on, so here is what I have discovered.
You can see the add-on in action by opening the Shapes Maps and Floor Plans Building Plan Resources stencil and dropping the Printer shape onto your page.  Alternativaly you can start a new Maps and Floor Plans Space Plan drawing. Notice the SmartTag in the bottom left corner which gives you access to the FMPrint add-on:

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
