How do I scale org charts?

I have created a chart which doesn't quite fit on one page. How do I make it fit? I can't see any scaling feature. Something along the lines of the feature in Excel would be great.

Hi Mark,

Great question! You have a few options when trying to fit a lot of content onto one page:

  1. You could break up your org chart into multiple page tiles within the same document. For example, you could break the org chart up by departments and put the HR department on one page, the IT department on a second page, etc.
  2. You can also hit ctrl+a (cmd+a for Mac) on your keyboard to select all of the shapes at once, and then manually resize all of your shapes to fit on the same page. You would also want to adjust the font size. Screen_Shot_2014-04-20_at_12.36.56_PM.png 
  3. You can use the Page Settings panel on the right-hand side of the editor to change the size of your document.

Nancy- While editing the document, you can go to File > Download As... > PNG. Since you are not able to select a specific area with PDF, PNG is the next best option. Then before downloading, be sure to select "Part of Current Page" and "Print Quality". Let me know if you have any other questions about this.
