Shape/text shall not resize
« on: March 02, 2018, 12:43:26 PM »
Hey guys,

I may need your help. Just for your information I am quite new with Visio, but I try my best to learn.
So currently I am creating some master shapes for a template. Within my shape I have a property (not sure if this is the right name because my visio is in german language :) )
The property is a text and it shall not resize itself or the shape.
So its a circel with a text in the middle and if it is longer then the circel it shall just get out of the circle. How could i manage this? I am quite sure there is something in the shape sheet but I have no idea were i can change it.
I could handle this easily with textbox and a circle but i don't like to group it as it should be one single shape.

I am looking forward for your ideas!
Greetings Hase1

Is this what you want? 

Open shapesheet.  Right click in shapesheet.  Add Text Transform section.

Hi wapperdude,

many thanks! This is exactly what I need, but it does not work. Anyhow with your idea I found the solution. I have to change the textwidth within the graphics' element. This has as standard the value "0"
