Default Distribute shapes equally


Hello there!

I am new to using Visio and came to this forum to get some advice on something I wanted to do. I have not found another thread asking this issue so if it has been discussed before I apologize and ask if someone can redirect me to it thank you!

If this subject has not been discussed, what I wanted to know if Visio has the possibility to distribute shapes equally in a circular way. To give an example of what I mean is something similar to the SmartArt option you had in PowerPoint where you add some words and the circles redistribute evenly (I attach a photo)

Even if PP allows this, it only lets you do 6 circles that is why I decided to use Visio. However, I havent found a distribution option for Visio, I use the alignment option but that works for straight line alignments and not circular. I also tried to use the distribution option but it makes a mess.

It is possible for me to do it slowly by myself but I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions to do this faster, easier and better

Well, that's it, sorry for the long post.

Have a nice day.

Losey

I am not familiar with such a tool in Visio. However, there is a Visio forum at: http://www.visguy.com/vgforum/ that posters may be able to help you.

Additionally, another link that may offer some help is at: http://www.visguy.com/category/visio...hapes/network/.

UPDATED NOTE: http://www.visguy.com/2014/11/18/circles-in-circle-1/ May be a starting point if you want to proceed in Visio. This topic addresses the nonavailability of circular pattern tools within Visio itself.
