Aspect ratio of visio documents interted when inserting into word

    I have this visio diagram which worked fine until this morning. I create the
    diagram and insert it into my word document, up until this morning everything
    would work fine.

    This morning, after re-editing my visio document, when I insert the diagram
    into the word document the width and height of the diagram are inverted
    causing the diagram to be distorted.

    I normally do the transfer betwen visio and word using EMZ files, I just
    find them easier to work with but in the process of trying to resolve my
    issue I tried different formats as well as copying and pasting directly
    between applications... the only format that seems to work well is when I
    copy the diagram as a visio object (which I try to stay away from after too
    many document corruptions).

    Been working like that for years now with no problems... any hints as to
    what I should look for ?

    To help I am using MS office 2007, v 12.0.6514..5000

    might not be much help but I went into the Page Settings in my visio document
    and refreshed the "portrait / landscape" once to portrait and then back to
    its original setting of landscape... save the document again in an EMZ file
    and it inserted properly into my word document.

    I guess something got wrong with the visio document.

    Anyhow, it is working now.
