How do you FLIP an OrgChart?
« on: October 06, 2023, 05:58:33 AM »
Got a question today from a user: How do you FLIP and OrgChart?
So that it's from the bottom to the top. The root is at the bottom, and it builds up to the top.

They have tried to use the "Position => Rotate Page => Flip Vertical" function, but that destroys the OrgChart connectors.

This answer for example seem to be not working with the new shapes:

My answer is: this is impossible now in Visio. But maybe it's just me  ;D

Haven't tried the referenced John Goldsmith suggestion nor played around with this, but...

I'm inclined to agree with Nikolay.  However, @Nikolay, after you made John's Doc stencil edits, did you drag new drawing shapes from there or from the normal stencil?   It would seem that any new shapes added to drawing must be dragged/dropped using only the editted shapes.

I did not edit much here actually, just watched a lady's suffering, while she was bravely fighting with connectors running in all directions like cockroaches (after flipping the org chart as shown in the above post), and my heart was bleeding :)

The Visio Org Chart is great, but it could have been so much more flexible.
