Visio diagrams

Squared Up will resize a diagram in the Visio tile to fill the column width. Resizing the column will make the diagram increase or decrease in size accordingly. You can also affect the size a Visio diagram is displayed in Squared Up by adding or removing the white space around the diagram in Visio as described below and in this article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/285024.

If you would like your Visio diagram to appear smaller within the column: In Visio increase the size of the white space (padding) or page around the diagram by holding down CTRL and dragging the corner of the page. Then save the SVG, and drag the new SVG file into the Squared Up Visio section again.

If you would like your Visio diagram to appear larger within the column: In Visio reduce the size of the white space around the diagram, save the SVG and drag the new SVG file into the Visio section again.
