Changing a Person’s Level in the Organization
However, in a large or complex organization chart, the graphic can quickly become too wide
with the Standard layout. Therefore, there are “hanging” alternatives that make the chart
more vertically oriented. The alternatives are Both, Left Hanging, and Right Hanging. They
are just what their names sound like. Figure 10.18 shows examples of Right Hanging.
Hanging layouts make the chart more vertically oriented.
The layout is chosen for individual branches of the organization chart, so before selecting
an alternative layout, you must click on the supervisor box whose subordinates you want to
change. To change a layout, follow these steps:
1. Click the box for the supervisor whose layout you want to change.
2. Choose SmartArt Tools Design
Layouts on the Create
Graphic section. A menu of layout options appears.
3. Choose one of the layouts (Standard, Both, Left Hanging, or Right Hanging).
If the Layouts button’s menu is grayed out, you do not have a box selected in a Hierarchy graphic.
