Title: Text Not Centered (or Right-aligned) on Wide Shapes
Post by: Visio Guy on June 20, 2008, 01:32:02 PM
Got this one from the Microsoft newsgroups:

If you make a shape and add centered text to it, the text will stop being centered when you reach a Width of 52 inches  (~132cm).

This seems to be a problem with Visio 2003 and Visio 2007.

The 52-inch limit is a "printed size" limit- ie: if you have a drawing scale of 1:4, then the problem will occur when the shape is 52 x 4 (=208 inches)

Right-aligned text also seems to have this problem.

My machine:

Visio 2007 Pro SP1 (en)
Windows XP SP3 (en)

I am having this exact issue in Visio 2016. Has anybody figured out a solution? Reported a bug?

Ten year resurrection!

Play with the scale of the drawing to avoid the limit of 52 inches.

It's the sort of bug that should have been fixed a long time ago.

How many users faced with this issue in these years?
Millions, thousands or hundreds ? I think it is dozens!
