When using either the Save As -> PDF or Export -> PDF the resulting PDF is created at standard letter size pages. I'm an information architect and I used tabloid/landscape pages for my wireframes. I've been using Visio for 10+ years and have never had this problem.

I've changed both the page set-up, print set-up, fit-to-page, yada yada yada but cannot get the Saved As/Exported PDF to appear any larger than letter size sheets. Oddly, if I export the .VSD file as an XPS doc it appears the way it should as tabloid/landscape sheets.

Any ideas on what the problem is?

  • I tried this in my Visio 2013, when I set the Design -> Orientation to landscape and then export to PDF I get the landscape PDF size. Is this the problem you are encountering ? Also why .VSD and not .VSDX ? Maybe you could put up a image. – Devid Jul 23 '14 at 19:33

Try one of the various 3rd-party PDF printers. I use PDF995 (no connection to the software owners - just a happy user).


I use the "Design->Size->Fit to Drawing" feature (Visio 2013). Sometimes it leaves some unwanted margins, but a fix is found here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/980530
