having noticed the lack of response to my "army", I suspected that the readers rejected the too wide pictures of my post.
It is alway difficult to get the right ratio of image size and readability.
So, I modified my previous posted pics to a width of 700 pixels and promise to take to heart not to post any "monster" pics in future.

May be the graphical style is also too childish. I'll read your comments - or not  :'(.

Nothing childish here! We learn by playing. I do so many silly things with Visio, but I never feel bad. I always get practical ideas from messing around!

I think the "title" is the problem.  As one who has noticed that catchy titles sometimes have the opposite effect, i.e., to discourage rather than to entice, I think "army" doesn't catch because no one can connect to a Visio feature.  There's no obvious "keywords". 

As for the presentation, it's great!  I followed the entire sequence.  Haven't explored the Visio files yet.

Okay, new title competition and I'll change it.

"Arrange your Visio Hoardes"
"Matrix Maker"
