VISIO - How do I create diagram that is larger than one page and landscape

Posted on 2008-11-14

I am trying to diagram a huge flow of relationships and it will take probably 6 pages taped together.
 How do I create a diagram that is larger than one page and landscape mode?
And then how do I print it so I can tape it together?

Thanks, Bill

    Try using an off-sheet label.  Here is a reference similar to what you want to do:

    To assemble a diagram in which a pipeline extends onto a new drawing page, you need to do the following:

    Assisted Solution

    Click on > File > Page setup > the click on the lanscape button for a lanscape drawing.

    To do that you want 6 page. Click on > File Page setup > Then page size. Then click on the lanscape button  > Pre-defined Size and click on the A1. The click on  > Allow

    You will be able do do what you what to do.

    Eskimo2704's idea is right on. Here's a previously answered question that might also help -- it includes a sample drawing that is set up the way you'd like (it's portrait not landscape but that's an easy change as Eskimo2704 described).

    That link was awesome... It help me see what Eskimo was telling me and I was able to access so much more. I see how the link another page to a shape so I can do like a drill down or master-detail relationship too!

    Thank you both!

    That may come in handy in the future but that is not really what I was looking for... thanks for the input!
