Nudge feature moves page instead of the selected shape in Visio

For a Visio 2000 version of this article, see 266447.


When you select a shape on your drawing and use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move or "nudge" the shape (SHIFT+ARROW KEY), the entire page moves, rather than the individual drawing objects that are selected in the drawing window.


This behavior occurs when the SCROLL LOCK key is enabled. In this situation, the arrow keys move scroll bars along the right side and bottom of a drawing window.


To resolve this issue, press SCROLL LOCK until your keyboard's Scroll Lock light (LED) is off.
