I'm doing something similar in Visio ... and unless you want an unwieldy
chart, best leave it the way it is. However, carefully playing around with
the chart ... it could be done ... big time waster though!
Maybe since the engineer suggested it's to be laid out on one sheet, you
could also ask how you're to reach that goal. Could be this engineer gave
up, and handed it over to you?
> I received twelve pages of Visio flow charts from an engineer who wants it
> all printed out onto one page from a plotter.
> The first page is a master page, and the successive pages show the
> "children" of a labeled box on the master page. For example, on the master
> page there is a box labeled 1.2.1. The next page starts with 1.2.1 and
> has a chart of its children below it, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, etc. There are
> four or five boxes of third-level headings, which start on their own Visio
> page, most of which also branch out into several fourth level and in some
> cases fifth level boxes. So all of this is supposed to be combined
> together in the right arrangement and printed on the plotter.
