    I copied a picture into a visio document. I then added a shaded rectangle. Save the vsd. I did a select all, copy, paste into Word document. The picture copies but the shaded rectangle does not. I also tried to group the selections, but that did not work either. I am looking to copy the picture and shaded rectangle into Word. Thanks!

dimension lines: why does changing the text size change line lengt

Postby U2FyYWg » Fri, 18 Aug 2006 07:40:02 GMT

I recently moved to Visio 2003 and have been using the new stencils in it. I 
added some "controller dimensions" from the office layout group (walls, doors 
and windows, US) to a drawing. They are not "connected" to anything because 
they are measuring parts of complex and grouped shapes.

I changed the size of the font on the dimension lines and found that the 
length of the lines would change. I've never seen a dimension line do that in 
any earlier version.

What on earth is going on? How do I make that behavior stop?

3.How to create a simple line with text shown inside the line in

I don't believe Word has any drawing capabilities of its own.  You might 
check over on the Word forum.  The other MS drawing packages kind of pale in 
comparison to Visio's capabilities, but it isn't cheap.

4.Need Visio shape for 1 line of text-can't use the 2-line shapes

I need to create an Org Chart in Visio using only one line of text in the 

All my shapes allow for two lines of text (i.e. Name and title) so when I 
enter only one line of text, the top and bottom spacing is not equal - the 
job title is at the top of the shape with an obviously larger space between 
the text at the bottom of the shape.
