MS Visio shape windows connection to shape wall

jinhua lee 1 Reputation point

I am using MS Visio 2016. Strange thing is that the shape window will connect to a point around the middle of the wall rather than the edge of the wall. If I lengthen the window shape, the connection will move upwards.

Question: how to connect shape window to the edge of the shape wall at all times regardless of the window length?

    Hi, @jinhua lee
    There is one possible situation for your reference: the white window is connected to the edge of the blue wall.
    Open Visio's developer mode, click on the design mode in the developer tab, and drag to the edge of the wall.
    In Visio Options, click Advanced, drop down the page to find Run in developer mode, and check the box.
    Click the Developer tab, click Design Mode.
