Chapter 7. Laying Out Office Spaces

Chapter 7. Laying Out Office Spaces

In this chapter you will learn to:

Think of something big—a house, an office building, or your backyard. Using Microsoft Office Visio, you can diagram a large object on a small drawing page by using a drawing scale, which represents the relationship between the object's size in the real world and its size on the page. Like a map that depicts a 10-mile stretch of highway with a 1-inch line, a scaled diagram represents physical space and objects at a ratio or a fraction of their real size. A drawing scale isn't only for large objects—you can draw very small objects, such as watch mechanisms or printed circuits, at a larger scale as well. When you start a Microsoft Office Visio diagram with a scaled template, Visio sets up the drawing scale that's appropriate for the drawing type, and the shapes on the stencils included with the template conform to the scale automatically when you drag them onto the drawing page.
