Change Org Chart shapes in Visio after Import Wizard

Hello. I'm working with an Excel data set that I'm importing into Visio via the Org Chart import wizard. By default, Visio displays the resulting chart in the "belt" shape style:

Our goal is to specify a different shape--the "Notch" style, preferably without the picture. There's no option to set that in the Import Wizard, and the Design tab only allows us to specify theme elements such as colors... not the shape. We can manually alter the shapes on each tab of the chart, one by one, but that's tedious on a 30+ page chart. Is there a way to change the shapes on one page and Apply to All Pages, as we do with the theme colors?

Hi @BrianCurtis-9251,
Welcome to Q&A forum!

Per my research and test, you may need to set the "Notch" style and remove all picture page by page.

  • Please press Ctrl + A to select all shapes in your Visio file.

  • Apply Notch style for all shapes.

  • And go to Org Chart tab, select Show/Hide or Delete in the Picture group to hide or remove them.

Besides, I would also suggest that you check if creating a new template is helpful to you.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Well, that's disappointing to learn. But thanks for clarifying; I appreciate the info!
