VISIO Circle properties

Hi, is it possible to define a circle width as 1.524 metres for example?  1.5 is fine but for some reason it gives an error for any more dec places.  Rectangles seem fine but it doesnt allow it for circles. (Using Office layout shapes in metric). Any ideas out there?

Thanks
Martin.

All you need to do is specify "1.524m" where the default would be 1.524mm.

Although defaulting to the smallest unit of measure, Visio will allow you to specify otherwise. If you specified 1.524' (feet), Visio would convert it to meters. You could also use 152.4cm, etc.

Assuming you're working in Visio 2000, go to Tools > Options > Regional Settings tab and select millimetres instead of metres.

I tested this and had no problem entering 3 decimal places on a circle measure. Did it with both basic shapes and office layout circular table.

Hope this helps,

Colleen

Thanks for your reply I will try this, however really I want it to be 1Metre 524 CM.  Converting it millimetres is a nuisance. So, 1.524 would be converted to 1,524.  Is there another way to keep it as metres? Thanks againa, Martin.
