Help and Tips

Tips and support for creating diagrams in Microsoft Visio 2010. Topics include editing images, selecting shapes, and general program configuration.


#1: Allow More Undos When Editing Diagrams
Allow Visio 2010 to remember more recent operations when supporting the undo feature.

#2: Make It Easier to Select Multiple Shapes
When using a selection rectangle in Visio 2010, select objects even if the rectangle does not completely surround them.

#3: Apply Formatting to Multiple Objects
Need to copy an object's formatting to other objects in your diagram? Here's how to use the Format Painter.

#4: Speed up Document Display; Render Less Text
Change how Visio 2010 renders small text by either attempting to display more of it, or speeding up document display by not rendering tiny characters.

#5: View Diagram in Full Screen
Quickly scan your Visio 2010 diagram in full-screen mode, hiding toolbars, status bars, and other onscreen elements.

#6: Automatically Zoom When Editing Text More Often
Visio 2010 automatically zooms in when trying to edit text less than 8 points. If you need to zoom in for even larger text, increase this number.
