Hi BroTru,

Look down in the status bar, at the lower-left of the Visio window. You should see Width and Height of rectangles and ovals as you draw or resize them. With lines, you see length and angle.

For added fun (and utility) click on that status bar (like on the Width or Height display) and up will pop the Size & Position window. This shows you more info as you resize shapes, and more importantly, lets you precisely enter size, orientation and position info numerically!
