Not sure what, if anything, I did, but now when I want to make a 2nd shape, I'll click on it like before, press control c then control V and the copy will be right on top of the 1st.  Then if I press control V again, the 2nd copy is slightly offset.  

It used to be that the 1st copy would be offset a little also.  That's what I want to get back - any copy will be slightly offset.

Any ideas?

CTRL+D will also create a duplicate in visio, it should offset diagonally below

Not sure but a 'repair' install may reset its settings? a complete reinstall?

I notice that if I draw a box around an item then control c, control v, that first copy is offset as expected.  clicking on a shape then control c control v. gets me a duplicate right over the item, which is different than 'before'.

that is bizarre, does ctrl+d function and offset the shape properly?
perhaps it may be best to re-install visio if it is just one computer

a reboot solved it.  Thanks for the control D shortcut.  didn't know about that and even before the reboot, control d worked as it should and saved a step : )
