Visio: Error 920September 12, 2014
This post is for me, as I’ve had this happen a couple of times now, and because I use Visio only a few times a year, I keep forgetting what I had to do to fix it last time!
BTW, reports of this error have been occurring since Visio 2002 and it’s still not fixed!
You get an error 920 message when trying to save a Visio file as a GIF, JPG, PNG etc.
There are two possible reasons that I found for this error:
- One or more objects are outside the Visio workspace. The solution is to select all objects, zoom out, and see if any of the selections are off the page. See here for details: http://alstechtips.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/error-920-occurred-during-action-save.html
- The resolution is set too high. To prevent fuzzy text in Visio (see the links below), when I save as an image format, I set the resolution to ‘Printer’, which might be 1200 x 1200 pixels/in. or 600 x 600 pixels/in. Sometimes, the image will save at that, but sometimes it won’t and you’ll get the 920 error message, so I select ‘Custom’ and drop the resolution down (e.g. to 600 x 600 if it was 1200; to 400 x 400 if it was 600). The ‘save as’ usually works then, but if it still spits the error, try dropping the resolution some more.
