    circular diagram (OfficeXP SP3)

    Hello I didnt know whether to post this in Powerpoint or Visio forum.

    I need a 8 circular arrow diagram (see pic below), that I can edit and amend.

    In Visio i can generate this type of diagram but the max arrows I can have is 5, and I need 8.

    Ive tried in Powerpoint - no success.

    I think this type of diagram is called a "marketing diagram"

    any ideas?

    The attached cannot be automatically generated as to the number of arrow point desired but rather manually aligned nevertheless can be amended. I used the Block Arrows autoshape. Customized it to an approximate curve length and arrow thickness to fit 8 on a circular pattern. Copy it on top of your original shape and rotated at the desired angle. Producing the other six objects for me is a matter of Group the previous two then Copy and Paste it exactly over top and rotate producing your first four. The last for is a matter of copying the first four and rotating to form the circular pattern. Importing it to desktop publishing software like Publisher would make adding text easier rather than than doing it directly in Word the object container of this diagram. Anyway here it is.

    nice one thank for you both. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Yes I started doing the arrows in Word and then in Powerpoint, trying to rotate them but the result was very messy .

    When I attempt to open the Visio files I get the following message. I have Visio XP - 2002.

    "The file cannot be opened because it was created with a newer or unrecognised version of Visio."
