Applies to: Office 2013 | Visio 2013

Contains cells that specify the actions associated with a custom command on a shortcut or action tag menu. The Actions section contains one Actions row for each action.

Note Note

In previous versions of Microsoft Visio, action tags are called smart tags.

Actions rows are named Actions.name and contain the following cells. For more details, see the specific cell topics.

The logical name of the action tag in which this action should appear.

You can add as many Actions.name rows as you need, assign meaningful names to the rows, and set cell values. To add a custom command to an existing Actions section, right-click a row and click Insert Row on the shortcut menu.

You can reference these cells by their row name, which appears in a ShapeSheet window in red text. To assign a meaningful name to an Actions.name row, click the row, and then type a name such as Custom, for example, to create the row name Actions.Custom. You can then reference the Menu cell by using Actions.Custom.Menu.

The row name you enter must be unique within the section.
