Whenever I insert a new page into an existing Visio file, I get the new sheet in an odd size (See attached graphic)  I don't know why this is and all I want is 11 x 17.
So I always have to manually reset the size of my newly created page.
Where does Visio get the size for new pages inserted.  It can't be neighboring pages because my neighboring pages are in my desired size.

Visio doesn't base the size of the new page on "neighboring" pages, but it does mimic the attributes of the currently active page. Check the dimensions of the current page before inserting a new one to be sure it is set at 11x17 for both printer and drawing page.
