Stencil dimension Ratio


  • Hello

    I am newly working on Visio & using Visio 2010

    I am generating Visio Stencils. I copied CAD shape from drawing & pasted in Visio. Then reduced to the size to match my page ratio 1:10. after this I copied this shape to Favorites stencil.

    when I dragged the same again on page it does not show actual image,

    Image gets enlarged.

    Pl. guide me what configuration changes need to be done in Visio to resolve this issue

  • Hi Madhav,

    Maybe the issue is related to the page ratio when you add the shape to Favorite stencil. I suggest you can add a normal shape to Favorite shapes, then right-click to select Edit Master > Edit Master Shape. Check the size for it.

    Then right-click the CAD shape you added to Favorite, click Edit Master > Edit Master Shape to check its size, resize it to the similar size as normal shapes. After finished the resize, close to save it. Then drag this shape to drawing and confirm if the issue can be fixed.

    Best Regards,
