Container not holding shapes when moved RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Visio 2010 Standard.

    When I select a group of shapes >> right-click >> Container >> add to new container, then when I try to move the container the shapes in the container don't move with it. Instead a 'ghost' of the shapes is visible but the shapes themselves don't move.

    When I place a shape into the container and select >> add to underlying container, I get an error:

    "The shape does not overlap any containers or is not allowed as a member of the containers it overlap"

    Any idea why this is happening?

    This is the first time I'm using this Visio in Win 10 environment. Previously, it worked fine in Win 7, although I don't know if this is relevant.
