Changing the Size and Position of a Diagram
Swapping one diagram for another
If the diagram you chose initially doesn’t do the job, you can swap it for a
different diagram. How successful the swap is depends on how far along you
are in creating your diagram and whether your diagram is simple or complex.
Follow these steps to swap one diagram for another:
1. Click your diagram to select it.
2. Go to the (SmartArt Tools) Design tab.
3. Open the Layouts gallery (you may have to click the Change Layout
button first).
You see a gallery with diagrams of the same type as the diagram you’re
working with.
4. Select a new diagram or choose More Layouts to open the Choose a
SmartArt Graphic dialog box and select a diagram there.
You may have to click the trusty Undo button and start all over if the
diagram you selected for the swap didn’t do the job.
Changing the Size and Position of a Diagram
To make a diagram fit squarely on a page or slide, you have to change its
size and position. Resizing and positioning diagrams and other objects is the
subject of Chapter 4 of this mini-book, but in case you don’t care to travel
that far to get instructions, here are shorthand instructions for resizing and
positioning diagrams:
Resizing a diagram: Select the diagram, move the pointer over a
selection handle on the corner or side, and start dragging after the pointer
changes into a two-headed arrow. You can also go to the (SmartArt
Tools) Format tab and enter new measurements in the Width and Height
boxes. (You may have to click the Size button to see these text boxes,
depending on the size of your screen.)
Chapter 2
Repositioning a diagram: Select the diagram, move the pointer over
its perimeter, and when you see the four-headed arrow, click and start
Notice when you resize a diagram that the shapes in the diagram change
size proportionally. Most diagrams are designed so that shapes fill out the
diagram. When you change the size of a diagram, remove a shape from a
diagram, or add a shape, shapes change size within the diagram.
