    Auto Adjust Box Height According to Text (Visio 2000)

    Is it possible to have boxes automatically adjust to the height according to the amount of text or lines in the box ?

    Some stencils contain an "Auto height box" which will do this.

    Stuart, thanks. Can you tell me which stencils ? I tried but can't find it.

    I'm not sure because I only have Visio 2002 installed here at the moment, but I am quite sure it was one of the very common stencils.

    Try "Basic Flowchart Shapes"

    In Visio 2002, "Borders and Titles" is a stencil which contains automatically resizing objects. Try the note box samples to see one in action. It appears to be a compound shape that is linked to a text box. I am pretty confident that you will find the same stencil in Visio 2000.

    Another stencil is the "Basic Flowchart Shapes" which has one called "Auto-height box".

    If none of these suit your needs, you may need to troll through all the stencils you have got to find a shape that you're happy with.

    I am guessing you don't want to visit the shape-sheet properties for these objects but if you did, you could work out how the sizes are controlled.
