Bingo. And quite properly so, I might add. John, you're complaining that PP
lacks a feature that Visio has and you need. Your complaint is
understandable, but consider where it leads if the PP designers listen to
you... and to everyone else who has a similar complaint about some other
Visio feature that PP lacks: PP ends up the size of the current PP and Visio
combined and runs at half the speed (and stability, probably) of either.

Aren't we always complaining about how bloated Word is because its designers
have tried to make it all things to all people? :-)
