Setting the FreeformDrawingPrecision property is equivalent to setting the Precision option on the Advanced tab in the Visio Options dialog box (click the File tab, and then click Options).

Possible values for the FreeformDrawingPrecision property range from 0 ( Tight) to 10 ( Loose). The default is 5.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the FreeformDrawingPrecision property to print the current freeform drawing precision setting in the Immediate window. It also shows how to get an ApplicationSettings object from the Visio Application object.

Public Sub FreeformDrawingPrecision_Example() 

    Dim vsoApplicationSettings As Visio.ApplicationSettings 
    Dim lngPrecisionSetting As Long 

    Set vsoApplicationSettings = Visio.Application.Settings 
    lngPrecisionSetting = vsoApplicationSettings.FreeformDrawingPrecision 

    Debug.Print lngPrecisionSetting 

End Sub
