Visio 2010’s Dynamic Grid can help you drag single shape and more easily position it in relation to other shapes on page. Dynamic Grid is turned on by default for most diagram templates. You can turn it on or off by toggling checkbox in View tab. To see Dynamic Grid in action, simply drop a shape next to another shape and notice orange lines that automatically appear. Note Dynamic Grid only aligns same edge boundaries of shapes. Dynamic Grid also displays orange line segments when evenly spaced shapes're found close to each other. Ueful for easily placing shapes in equal distances from one another. Simply drop a shape next to other evenly spaced shapes to see these line segments in action. Dynamic Grid scans both horizontally and vertically when displaying feedback. When either an alignment or spacing relationship is found between shapes, Visio will gently snap shape you’ve selected to an invisible grid. To help position shapes within a page, Grid also supports margins around pages, and for shapes within a container, Grid supports container margins and centerlines.
