Increasing page size - how to preserve diagrams?


S

Sue Bilstein

I have 8 pages of closely-packed shapes (cross-functional flowcharts).
I'm changing these from A4 to A3. I then want to Select All and move
my diagram on the page. However, when I do this, it scrambles the
shapes - moves swimlanes, lengthens connectors, lengthens shapes.

Is there any way to avoid this?

It seems that this group is not very active.

From further searching of Visio groups, I find that Visio tends to
scramble diagrams in many different situations.

I found that grouping shapes was some help in preventing the
scrambling when I moved the entire diagram on the page. However, Visio
only allows grouping within swimlanes.

Ultimately, I found I had to reconstruct my diagrams on an empty page.

These newsgroups are no longer in use and it is unlikely that you will get an answer here.
There are replacement forums for Visio, Microsoft's own:
