In Visio 2003 can you reverse the vertical ruler in the map template so that

the numbers run from 0 at the top of the page to positive numbers at the

bottom of the page e.g. o at the top of the page and +300 at the bottom of

the page? If you can how do you do this?

    • Hi LM,

      If you move your mouse to the top-left corner and hover over the point where

      the rulers meet, you'll get instructions on how to move the ruler's origin.

      As far as I know, you can't change the positive directions, though. Positive

      is always to-the-right and upwards. But if you move the zero point to the

      top-left, then you just need to add a minus-sign to all of your y-values.

      Hope this helps,
