Are you using the "Fix Width" and "Fix Height" options on the containers as well?
Thank you for the response.
I'm not sure what you mean.
First, a little clarification. I'm sure you realize from looking at the screen shots that the upper left and bottom vizzes are the two that are messing me up. The upper left is a height problem, and the bottom one is a width problem.
I know there is a "Fixed Height" option on the context menu for each viz, but I don't see a "Fix Width" option anywhere. I looked on the Worksheet menu and the Format menu, too.
The way I have it set up now, the containers are maintaining their size, and the result is not too bad (below). I did have a nice dividing line between the title and body of each viz (you can see it on the other two vizzes), but that goes away when I shade the entire layout container. Still, I can live with it, I am just looking for a better way.
Those 2 options are the context menu for the Horizontal and Vertical container objects. They allow you to toggle between what I'll call "container managed height/width" and "user managed height/width".
Select the layout container in question and play with those options to see if it helps.
Height applies to Verticals; Width to Horizontals.
You would think I would remember to ask that question first, wouldn't you?
You are of course correct: this is newer functionality (10.4 or .5 I think). Very handy for precisely the situation you find yourself in.
I feel like I've solved that problem before though, so let me ponder it a little while...
Well, again, I appreciate your willingness to put your energy into this, and I look forward to anything you have to add, but please don't overextend yourself. It is awesome that you have spent as much time on this as you have.
