Modifying Page Layout

This tutorial provides step by step instructions on how to modify the layout of a chart. If you plan on automating your org charts, most of the time OrgChart will automatically optimize the layout for you; however, if needed, you can always manually update page layout options as needed.

  1. Select the FILE RIBBON (FILERIB.png) and then click on the openfile.png Open button.
  2. Click on the folder called Tutorials.
  3. Double-click on the file called Tutorial 7.
  4. First, let's use Text Wrapping to make sure no fields are truncated.
  5. Make sure the EDIT CHART RIBBON (EDITCHARTRIB.png) is selected. Click and drag to select all boxes (make sure your initial click is above and to the left of the chart). You can also use Ctrl+A to select all boxes.
  6. Click on the wraptext.png Text Wrap tool and then select the Unlimited Wrap option. Notice how boxes are automatically resized to accommodate their contents.
  7. Next, let's make sure Assistants are displayed properly in the chart.
  8. Select Tim Main's box (located on the left of the second level).
  9. Use the branchstyles.png Branch Styles tool to select the Assistant Right style (assistright.png).
  10. Finally, let's get the entire chart to fit on the page.
  11. Use the fastselect.png Fast Select tool to select All non-managers.
  12. Use the branchstyles.png Branch Styles tool to select the One column right style (onecolright.png).
  13. Congratulations! You've modified layout of the chart.
