Change entity size in Visio

In Visio, I have a very large diagram from a reverse engineered database.  Is there any way to hide columns from tables therefore making the overall diagram smaller?  I really don't want to send my diagram off to Kinkos to print it on a plotter!

I have no idea if it's possible but if you can supply a sample file I can look and see.

Let me rephrase:

I have no idea what an entity is in the context but a sample file and specific instructions will help understanding.

My guess is then that this is not possible.  Let's just close the request.

If you want ... I am trying to help but the question is currently too vague

My apologies for the delay in my response...

Take a look at the screenshot I've attached.  Most of the columns in this sample table are audit-related columns (CreatedBy, CreatedDate, etc.).  Notice that this entity is selected, and the typical transform boxes are available (for adjusting height and width).  However, these transform boxes do nothing.  I would like to modify the height of this entity to show only the first two fields and hide everything else.  Given that all of my tables have the last six fields, this will save a substantial amount of paper real estate.  Unfortuantely, I have no idea if this is possible!?

Any suggestions?

What sort of object is sample table? i.e. if I want to recreate it what do I do ... in this way I can be sure that I am investigating the correct object.

This is a database diagram and this specific object is a table.

Everything I can find indicates the objects do not expose their properties so it looks as though the answer is no - this is cerainly how it looks in code as well.
