Hi experts,
trying to edit around an organization chart for our office.  i started it by going to insert>picture>organization chart.  the only problem is i have a lot of subordinates to fill out.  Is their any way to manually adjust the size of a subordinate cell, or any individual cell, without changing the others by default?

You should be able to adjust each cell individually.  Did you copy a picture of an org chart?  What version of Office are you using?

I am currently running Office 2003.  I did not copy a picture of an org chart.  What i did was went into a new word document and inserted a brand new one, from there i added the individual assistant and subordinate cells (think that's what you call them) to make the format correct.  I attatched a picture to show what my screen looks like.  when i select an individual cell it looks like i have little dots on the corner of that cell which i should be able to drag to enlarge... though they almost seem to have an x through them hinting that this option may be disabled.

You should be able to re-size each of the cells independantly without affecting the others (by using the dot on each corner or the boxes on each side).  You have to have the cell you wish to resize selected (just click on it).  Hope this helps!

yeah, that's definately the problem then.  I need to find the setting that unlocks the cells, because right now it seems locked.  When i choose the entire chart i am able to stretch it and it stretches every cell,  but when i go to an individual cell is when it is locked.

i figured it out, under the Organization Chart toolbar there is an option called Auto-Format that was selected.  This was keeping me from being able to automatically adjust each individual cell.
