Small diagram on large paper

I have a small diagram on a large sheet of paper.
Is there an easy way to proportionaly increase the size of the entire collecton of objects on my workspace so that it better fills up the sheet of paper when I print it out?

Hi BT,

Two ways to do this.

1. Since your shapes are probably working well as drawn, resizing them as one big group is not always a good idea. Visio shapes are "better" than clipart, and sometimes have intelligent sizing. Think of arrowheads that don't stretch or office walls that won't get thicker when you resize them. So you should probably just reduce the page size to fit the drawing contents, if you don't like the excess space. Then, you can specify at print time to fit to "1 page across by 1 page down".

2. Copy the page. Open a new document, and Paste Special > As Metafile. Now you have a dumb graphic that is still a vector representation of the original drawing. You can resize this to fit the page, then print with default settings.
