Expertly position, stack, an Controlling the arrangement of shapes  in a Visio diagram is the key to  communicating information. Clear  shape arrangement strengthens the  significance of individual shapes and  crystallizes the relationships among  shapes.  Overview: The importance of arranging shapes Because arranging shapes is so  important, Visio offers many methods.  This course shows you how to  position stack , and  group  shapes.

Expertly position, stack, an Expertly position shapes Diagrams are great because they  communicate more efficiently than  a bunch of text. But some diagrams  fail because of the sloppy  positioning of their shapes. Positioning shapes on the page  expertly and neatly will not only  make your diagrams look good, but  will also help communicate the  information within them more  clearly. A messy flowchart and  an orderly one

Expertly position, stack, an Use the grid and the rulers If a diagram contains many shapes,  it has the potential to get cluttered.  One way to fight the clutter is to  arrange shapes by using the grid  and the rulers.   The grid and rulers When you first add shapes to the  page or position shapes, use the  grid lines to keep them straight. And  keep an eye on the grid to make  sure your shapes are evenly spaced.

Expertly position, stack, an Use the grid and the rulers The rulers are also invaluable. Use  them to see the exact distance  between shapes or to know just how  big a certain shape is. The grid and rulers By default, shapes  snap  to the grid  lines and the measurement lines on  the rulers. So you don’t have to do  fussy hand work to position a shape:  It puts itself where you want it and  then stays there unless you move it.

Expertly position, stack, an Follow the guides Even more visible than the grid lines  are the  guides : vertical or horizontal  lines that you can place on a page.  You drag guides from a ruler, and by  default they appear blue, as in the  illustration.  Guides: another way to  keep things orderly
