Using Visio 2003, I'm trying to take an internal slice of a 3D cube and
shade it. To create the slice (a parallelogram), I only knew to draw the
four lines, then perform an *Operations* > *Join* on them in the hope of
creating an object I could then shade. So far, I've had no success in
getting Visio to recognize the slice (outlined in blue) as a single object
that can be shaded. Any idea how to do this?
