I'm working in VISIO 2003 Standard, flowchart. Wondering how to get the ruler to start at 0 instead of negative inches and then how to get the working area/pane into the corner of the screen instead of somewhere in the gray area so that I always have to move the screen to find it or reduce the size to find it. VERY annoying. PLEASE help! Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Here is the answer for the first half of your question:
To change where the ruler zero point starts on the page, select Tools > Ruler & Grid. This opens the Ruler & Grid dialog box. At the top is the Ruler section, the second field from the top is Ruler Zero. Click inside the text box and type in the measure from the bottom (or from the left) that you want the ruler’s zero point to be.

    A shortcut for the above: you can change the zero point of the coordinates displayed on the rulers by holding down CTRL and dragging the crossbar at the intersection of the two rulers. Moving the zero point has no effect on the page coordinate system, but it can be useful for measuring the distance between shapes.
