Formatting Visio Diagrams for PowerPoint Slides

Text that looks fine in a Visio diagram can be too small to read on a PowerPoint slide. Frankly, this can be irritating when you want that flowchart or diagram to occupy a prominent and readable position in your presentation. The default text size for most Visio drawing types is 8 to 12 points, which is readable when printed or when you’re sitting right in front of the computer monitor. When copied onto a slide and projected onto a larger screen, however, the text can get lost.

A guideline for slide text that will be projected onto a large screen is to use 24-point type. In a Visio diagram that uses shapes formatted for 8- to 12-point type, you will probably have to fuss a bit with both the shape size and the text format if you really want to make sure that the diagram’s text can be read in a big room.
