Text on a Circle Visio SmartShape

Updated: January 13, 2015 | 0 views


When you purchase Text on a Circle Visio SmartShape, you get a Visio stencil that contains three master shapes. These shapes allow you to type a maximum of 25, 50 or 100 characters of text, which flows around a circle.

Because the shapes are very complex, use the smallest capacity shape that you can for performance reasons. The 100-character shape can react quite slowly during resizing operations.
