comment Entity handle from Visio
What is the end goal? Not sure why you want this data in a gis system? What spatially referenced data are you using and how will it be combined? Maybe you should do the gis stuff first, make an image and add any squares or rectangles to that.

comment Exporting PDF from QGIS with print composer without destroying fonts
I am not familiar with Illustrator, I use nitroPDF and it reproduces the fonts fine and allows editing. You might also try Inkscape and the GIMP but I can't speak from experience about them. Which font in particular?

comment Why do layers appear in the wrong order in QGIS 2.2?
There is a also a panel for setting the layer order. View panels. Then there is a toggle to have layer order managed separately to tree order.

Not sure what you mean by "paths"? There is a setting to print as raster, normally this is off, which is how you should have it.

comment QGIS convert attribute table to point shape
@Mapperz comment should be an answer, after opening the layer as a Delimited text csv, you would then save it as a shapefile. Likely you don't need to manipulate the file. WGS 84 should work. What format is the long lat information in the file?

comment How can i change the geometry of an existing layer?
The key problem you are describing seems to be that you don't have a "common attribute". If that is the case then you can only really associate the points by proximity (closeness or a specified distance). Or associate them manually. Expand on your question with more information about your data, how many points, what info is in the attributes. Also see this for a similar problem gis.stackexchange.com/questions/89122/…

comment How do I add coordinates to a polygon layer to be able to sort the polygons from north to south in QGIS?
OK, for that (in hindsight) in the original file of the polygons, I create an explicit index column. Using the FieldCalculator, I make a new text column called 'index' with the value of the row number $rownumber from the record section of the function list. That give 1, 2, 3, etc. When you carry out the create centroids step, that index (and all other attributes) will be inherited into the attribute table of the new shapefile. You could then create a 'Join` LAYER|PROPERTIES|JOINS based on the index. Reopen the attribute table and you will see new columns with the values from the centroid.

comment Does OpenStreetMap have property boundaries?
In Australia, it seems that Google ingested the Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB). Usually you have to buy it, although not a big cost to Google I spose. A new development is that Land and Property NSW is making the data free and much more accessible. See globe.six.nsw.gov.au
