Is there a way to stop walls in Visio automatically snapping so they're 90deg? I have two walls which meet at about 85deg, but Visio thinks it knows best.

I do not use Visio, but I know quite a few CAD and 3D packages. Try holding SHIFT down? – paradroid Sep 29 '10 at 20:29
Shift just locks it to 45deg increments relative to the whole drawing. – mattdwen Oct 1 '10 at 21:42

I'm looking at Visio 2007, so this might be different in other versions.

You can specify the measurement manually: View > Size & Position Window. select the object. Type in the angle you want.

To turn on/off snapping, show the snap toolbar: View > Toolbars > Snap & Glue

With snap off it still happens. I'm going to try and record a video and link to it. – mattdwen Oct 1 '10 at 21:43
