1.  I have inserted an excel workbook into my Visio page.
2.  It's too big on the Visio page so I made it smaller by dragging the corner handles.
3.  Looks great on the page.  Everything is readable and my diagram and excel worksheet happily co-co-exist.
4. I double-click to open/edit that workbook.
5.  I make the edits and then click outside the excel worksheet area to return to Visio.
6.  My embedded excel object is now --once again-- too large.  I must re-size it again by dragging the corner handles.

How can I permanently size the embedded Excel object so that I don't have to repeatedly alter the size of the worksheet?

Above post holds true, I am using 2013 as well.

If you don't have the Developer tab enabled yet:

FileOptionsCustomize Ribbon.  Under the Main Tabs box, enable the Developer tab.
