Visio 2010 - I have a large diagram with many elements which I need to make smaller

I have a diagram with shapes, textboxes and other things which is 11" high and 5" wide.  I need to take this entire group of shapes, etc. and make is 8" tall.  (I need to maintain the aspect ratio).

How can I do this?

CTRL-A, then resize using the box which surrounds everything.

When you do that, grab 1 of the 4 corner selection handles (when the double pointer is at a 45-degree angle) to resize, and that will maintain the aspect ratio. If you grab a vertical or horizontal selection handle (between the corners), it resizes only one direction and does not maintain the aspect ratio.

You mentioned that you have text boxes... If you use the technique described above, the text boxes will resize -- but the text itself will not. If you need to resize the text, you'll have to do that before or after you drag the resize handle.
