Visio Dimensions

Hi,

I am used to Visio 5.0 Technical, and am missing a tool that was invaluable to me now that I'm using Version 2000.

I cannot get the dimensioning tool to work as I want. In the old visio, I had shapes that would measure vertical and horozantal dimensions seperatly, the new tool measures point to point, putting the shape at an angle.

Any idea how to modify the shape, or could someone email me the old .vss file with the two seperate shapes in it.

Regards
Martin

If you have the Size/Position window displayed (View Menu > Windows > Size & Position), you can set the horiz/vert dimensions separately and the PIN POSITION which allows you to change the points from which the measurement begins and ends.

The thing is, that I have my design done, I want to add dimensions to the diagram visually. My problem is that most of the time, I want only to see the X or Y distance, not vector

I usually just click it and get it all. Lately to get some shapes back to equal, to help align, whether X or Y.  If overcrowded and tiny, make sure you click right spot, and don't re-save until you do

Please delete this question.

I had forgotten about it, and have since brought my computer out of storage, copied the visio 5 template with the dimensioning tool into my other visio instalation.
