hi Visio Folks

just a very QUICK question: as the title says, why do the arrow keys scroll the page rather than move the objects in my Visio 2007?

i am currently working on a Visio document that i created earlier. i definitely could use arrow keys to move the objects precisely. no idea what changed so far, i would guess just a switch on or off.

your comments please??

regards,
bbao

If pressing an arrow key scrolls your drawing instead of moving a shape, make sure the SCROLL LOCK key is not on.

thanks for that jackieman.

it should be SCROLL LOCK related though i am sure when the problem happened the lock was not on.

however, after pressing the SCROLL LOCK on and off, the problem is gone. :-)
