Drag n Drop of multiple rows of External Data (Excel) to Visio is Diagonal RRS feed

  • Question

  • I love the Visio integration that allows me to link a data source or Excel spreadsheet to Visio.  However it is irritating that if I drag a bunch of rows from External Data to the Visio canvas, they are created as a single diagonal line of objects.  It would be a lot easier to rearrange and align groups of objects if they were in a straight line, or even better, could be auto arranged inside a container.  Is there any configuration that can affect the multi-selected drag n drop behavior?  Thanks!

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, it's a default behavior and there is no build-in option to configure it. I suggest you post your idea in Visio UserVoice suggestion box. If you are using Visio 2016 or later versions, you can also send your feedback in Visio: click File > Feedback.

    Best Regards,
