Use the Settings property of the Application object to get an ApplicationSettings object that you can then use to set various application properties corresponding to those in the Options dialog box (Tools menu) and the Snap & Glue dialog box (Tools menu).


This MIcrosoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the Settings property to get an ApplicationSettings object. It also shows how to use the RecentFilesListSize property to get the number of entries in the list of recently used files in Visio.

Public Sub Settings_Example()

    Dim vsoApplicationSettings As Visio.ApplicationSettings
    Dim lngListSize As Long

    Set vsoApplicationSettings = Visio.Application.Settings
    lngListSize = vsoApplicationSettings.RecentFilesListSize

    Debug.Print lngListSize
