Why the page is too small in Visio 2013 ?

Hi I am trying to print the diagram in Visio2013. but one page(Letter size) looks like too small. Even if I use "Fit to exactly 1 sheet" in Page setup, it still cannot work. Please see the picture. Thank you

Visio can be rather buggy when it comes to printing.  It will not move objects around to fit them onto one sheet of paper.  When you start a diagram, you need to plan what size paper it will be printed on and set that size in the page setup options.  Then keep the drawing within that size.

last several times, its Fit to One Sheet function worked well, but now it cannot work. Maybe the starting diagram was not right

Visio has Drawing Scale function. When I use it, it can reduce the diagram, but it cannot reduce character (words). It used to work, now it cannot

One key thing to know: Visio does not print anything that is on the "canvas" -- the gray area surrounding the page. To print all of your shapes, you need to expand the size of the drawing page. You do that on the Page Size tab.

Then, because you've already set "Fit to 1 sheet across and 2 sheet down" on the Print Setup tab, you should have better results.

I'm glad that worked.

For anyone else reading this later "and 2 sheet down" in my previous comment should be "and 1 sheet down".
