I'm pretty capable with FrameMaker's drawing tools, but am now constrained
to using Visio. Is there any resource out there y'all could point me to
that lets me "translate" my FrameMaker drawing skills to using Visio? I
know how to perform a task in FrameMaker, but how do I do that in Visio?

Things like "tweaking" the position of an element with ALT-arrow, or even
grabbing the end of a line and making it shorter by dragging it.

Thanks for any pointers,
