Default Organization Charts

Consider an org chart that has 1 manager, below that 2 subordinates (Sub1 and Sub2), below Sub1 there is a sub-subordinate (SS1). SS1 is no longer to report to Sub1, he/she is instead to report to Sub2.

In PowerPoint 2003 all I would have done was drag the SS1 box and drop it physically onto the Sub2 box.

This doesn't work in PowerPoint 2007 as all that happens is the SS1 box moves and the line linking it back to Sub1 stretches accordingly, it does not link to SS2.

I can only find two ways of transferring the box:-

a) Creating a new box and deleting the old one


b) Cut the SS1 box, then paste it onto the Sub2 box, then - as it pastes as a co-worker to the right rather than a subordinate - click the demote button to drop it down a level

Neither method seems very clever... the 1st can't be right and the 2nd is an awful roundabout way of doing what was so simple before.

What am I missing, please?
