Hi

I have a Visio document which contains 2 worksheets. The user would like to have this as one page.

Does anyone know how to do this?

500 points since it's quite urgent.

Many thanks.

Is the new page twice the size?
If so, can't you just do a select all and paste each page onto the new page?
Or do you want each page to be shrunk, so that both pages fit on a single normal page?

I'd like both pages to fit on a single normal page.

I've tried select all and then pasting the second worksheet onto the first one, and then selecting 'fit to one page' in print settings, but there's still about 1/2 of the second worksheet that won't fit...and reducing the font size reduced the size of the letters, but not the boxes...are you aware of a method to do this as well?

Can you select all, then group everything before you reduce the size?

I just tested the ddhamm's idea ...
The grouping works, this will shrink everything and keep it proportional.
Then click once on the grouping so that it is "selected" and adjust the font size ... this will adjust the font size for all boxes.
You might have to go in a clean up the fints afterwards if you have any titles or things that require a different font.

By doing this, you should be able to get both pages onto the single page ... I did  :)

Oh, Once you have the stuff grouped and resized, you can always ungroup them if you need to modify something.

Thanks guys, I know how to select all but how can I group them (sorry - am not a Visio expert by any means!).

I think you do this:
Select all, Right click and select Shape from the resulting menu.  From the Shape menu, select Group.

To ungroup your shapes, select the group, right click, and select Shape -> Ungroup
