I am designing org charts using PowerPoint 2010 (because they will need to be edited by people without design software) and it's becoming maddening.
I decided to use the smart art feature because it seemed flexible and easy at first. I'm using the hierarchy preset. When I resize a box, it resizes and even moves all or some of the others. The way it will react is unpredictable.
Is there a way to disable this feature so that I can resize boxes independently and still keep the good features of smart art, such as lines following the boxes when you move them.
I've contacted Microsoft and worked with one of their chat people and it led me to this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2007-word/smart-art-re-sizing-issue/068cea45-7ee6-4883-89e2-f434dfcdc006
Others have been unable to resolve this problem. Can SE do it? Thanks, Ian
