The Visio drawing page is the white working area surrounded by a light blue or gray background. By default, the drawing page displays grid lines that help you to align shapes on the page. You can turn the grid on or off by selecting View/Grid from the main Visio 2003/2007 menu or by unchecking Grid on the View tab of the Visio 2010 ribbon.
You create any type of drawing, including a TaskMap, by dragging objects from a stencil onto the drawing page. You can also store objects temporarily on the blue space surrounding the drawing page.
For information about the characteristics of the four, standard TaskMap templates, refer to The TaskMap Template.
We recommend that you use the standard page sizes wherever possible, in part because this automatically helps to limit the number of tasks per page, which makes TaskMaps more readily understandable. For additional drawing guidelines, see Creating a TaskMap.
Each TaskMap drawing page also includes the TaskMap logo and a Task shape legend. The legend may be deleted from any page, if desired. The TaskMap logo can be removed in TaskMap 4 Pro only, but it can be repositioned in all versions of the product.
