How to adjust shapes when they overlap
« on: July 29, 2012, 03:32:05 AM »
I am exporting my UML diagrams to visio using Java Swt Ole Automation.There are situations when the shapes drawn on page overlap with each other.Are there any adjustments in visio settings which can be done such that the shapes  automatically adjust themselves on drop and do not overlap with each other?

Right-click on the page tab -> Page Setup -> Layout and Routing

Move other shapes away on drop

ensure this is ticked.
