Organization Chart - Text Won't Vertically Center in Boxes


M

Hi,

Some of my shapes seem to have an extra return after the last line of
text, which causes them to move up an extra line in the box. I can't
delete the return because it just comes back. I've seen this happen in
several files I've created.

I can't find anything differernt between the boxes that don't have the
extra return and the ones which do. Sometimes copying a good shape and
editting it works, but other times it doesn't.

I'm using Visio 2003 and really stumped.

Any idea how this happened and how to fix it?

Also, when I copy and paste a shape the size doesn't stay the same.
How do I get it to?

Thank you,

Michele

In the Orgchart, The default position shape has two fields in the text block
(name and title). The blank line you are is an empty title field. Go to the
Options on the Orgchart menu and you will be able to to change the contents
of the position shape to a single field.
