I'm using Visio 2003 and want to change the Zero Point location for the Rulers.  The vertical ruler's zero point is in the lower left corner.  I want it to be in the upper right.  If I set the location to 34, it puts 0 in the upper right corner, but the next number down is -1.  I want the vertical ruler (from top to bottom) to start at 0, then go to 1, 2, 3, etc.

Sorry, but what you want cannot be done.
If the zero point is moved to the top of the page, the downwards direction stuck at being a negative number.

just adding to what MEINTSI said this does not affect the way visio works  just the way the rulers are displayed
