  • Edit the data graphic that is applied to the shape.

    1. In Visio 2010, select the shape and choose Data > Data Graphics > Edit Data Graphic

    There are three fields displayed in this example. You will need to edit each of the fields.

    2. Select the first field and choose Edit Item.  This displays the Edit Item dialog.

    3. In the Details section scroll to the bottom and find Callout Width. The default value is 0.  This field accepts units and defaults to inches in the US version of the software.  So enter a value of 3 or 3 in, or whatever field width works for your data.

    4. Choose OK.

    5. Choose Apply.

    6. Edit the other two fields in the same way.

    When you edit the data graphic, the changes will appear on all shapes the data graphic is applied to.
