I want to turn off the Auto size button.  How can I do this?  Every time I start up Visio, this button is pressed by default.

The setting for the AutoSize button is actually a function of the Visio template. Some/most templates have AutoSize set on by default; others have it set off. If you frequently use one of the standard Visio templates in which AutoSize is on, simply create a new document from the template, turn off AutoSize, and then save the new document as a Visio template instead of a drawing. New diagrams you create from the template will have AutoSize off.

Two more thoughts:

1) If you've never created a template before and need a few tips about how to make them readily accessible, let me know.

2) While you're creating a custom template, are there any other things you always want in the diagrams you create from this template? A company logo? A background page with "Company Confidential"? As long as you're creating a custom template you might as well make your life easier in the future!
