    Organisation Charts (XP)

    Is it just me, or is the new Organisation Chart in XP completely bugged? Has anybody else been completely despairing of it? Try these 3 for starters:

    1. In PowerPoint, create a chart with 1 person at the top, 2 people at the next level, 2 people under 1 person at the next level. OK, now create another subordinate level (level 4) at the bottom. Look different? Well, blow me if the layout of the chart hasn't changed to 'Right Hanging' from 'Standard'! Is this supposed to happen? What benefit is there to having an organisation chart with different types of layout? And can it be turned off?

    2. Now go back and select a box at level 2 or 3. Try adding another subordinate. When I try this, it just overwrites the existing subordinate, so you end up with the same number of subordinates but the previously entered data lost! What's that all about?

    3. Now try creating a chart in Word. Add text to the 1st box. Check the text alignment - mine is left. Then add subordinates. Here the text alignment is centred!!

    I've not heard much about this problem in reviews of Office XP. I don't remember WOW ever referring to it. Any ideas?

    Thanks (with slightly less hair), Laurie

    I think your question in point 1 has to do with some of the new "Automatic sizing" (I can't remember the marketing term) in XP.
