Title: Changing Shapes (Shapetacular specifically)
Post by: ander038 on March 15, 2018, 12:12:56 PM
So I have a big spreadsheet with the org chart info that I need to autogenerate a chart.  It always defaults to belt (i'd prefer shapetacular) AND, a modified version of it to be specific.

Can't really figure out if it's possible to modify one or if I have to modify it by editing after the fact (can get to be problematic when the organization is approaching 1000.

2 examples are included first what I desire (created in Visio 2010) and what I've been able to create (Visio 2016)  Ignore coloring and anything other the data graphics on the 4 corners.  I just wanna mess with placement and size of the text (name and role), and generic box properties (size, lines, rounded corners?).

New Stencils are nice, but I can't seem to get one to 'apply' to the whole page much less the whole organization.

Are you trying to apply to an existing drawing?  You need to do a shape replace.  I know Paul Herber's utilities has that capability, not sure about V2016.  Might be added feature...or not.
