Resizing shapes in visio

Please can anyone help?  I am a beginner in using visio and one of the worst problems is trying to resize an arc tangent to accurate measurements.  I have noticed that when I drag the handles the size does not increase in increments of one, making it difficult to get the required measurement.  Is there an easier way to do this?

Hi A.S.,

Are you using a particular shape? It's not clear from your description what you are trying to do nor where your problem lies.

Thanks for your reply.  After trying a lot different options I managed to work out how to do it!   :)
