    Not wanting to resize objects (XP)

    Hi gang,
    I created a chart (manually) that is letter size. I want to add boxes to the chart. I change the paper size to Legal but PPT resizes everything to fit on the page.
    Is there a auto resize function I can turn off?
    I looked but can't find.
    Thanks.

    I don't think you can avoid this - you'll have to resize the chart manually after changing the page size.

    Hi Hans,
    I found a way to go around this. I select all and cut, resize the page and paste. The size of the chart (drawing) remains unchanged.
    I was hoping for a checkbox to deselect to avoid having to do this.
    Thanks.

    Did you select something other than "On screen show" before making the change?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Hi Dave,
    I tried it with "On screen show", I tried it with US Letter.
    Same thing every time. As soon as I change the size of the sclide (paper) the drawing adjusts itself.
