The background of what I'm trying to do is, I am a Technical Author who has just started a new job and I have inherited some files from the previous author. I'm using Visio. He used a lot of screen shots with labels that point to various parts of the user interface when a particular step in a task is made. There are currently two separate lines, one in red and one in white, the white is used to show up when the line goes over the user interface which is a dark gray, the theory being I guess that if it were black it would get lost visually against the user interface. He has labels that go with these lines that are labelled step 1, 2, 3 etc.
Currently the two lines are sperate, which means a lot of fiddling about when I have to move them. I'd like them to be grouped together, preferably with a drop shadow that would look nicer. Also I'd like a way to snap the 1,2,3 lables to a grid so that they all line up and look neat - I'm currently having to do this by eye.
It's just all taking a lot of time fiddling about and I'm thinking there's got to be a better way that looks better visually too. I can send a screen shot but not sure how to do it on here, it wouldn't let me when I posted the question.
I'm hoping I've described this well, if not please let me know if you need further clarification. I think if I sent you a screen shot it would help convey what I mean better.
