I would like to have my windows arrange horizontally or vertically.  However, I don't see any option allowing me to choose which orientation I can view.

Keyboard shortcuts to the rescue!

Shift+F7 = tile horizontally
Ctrl+Shift+F7 = tile vertically

Additional help on keyboard shortcuts:
-- Quick reference (look for View drawing windows in the Visio-specific tasks section)
-- Video tips

The commands Scott mentioned can be reached via View > Window...OK, just the Arrange button is there. But I found that if you

- Click Arrange All, you get vertical windows
- Click Ctrl + Arrange All, you get horizontal windows

You can add this button to the Quick Access toolbar if you do them a lot, but it's probably easier to memorize Scott's shortcuts.

Interesting about Ctrl+Arrange All... hadn't noticed that. A classic case of inconsistency across Office applications; the Arrange function is slightly different in each app.
