Text on a Circle Visio SmartShape

When you purchase Text on a Circle Visio SmartShape, you get a Visio stencil that contains three master shapes. These shapes allow you to type a maximum of 25, 50 or 100 characters of text, which flows around a circle.

Because the shapes are very complex, use the smallest capacity shape that you can for performance reasons. The 100-character shape can react quite slowly during resizing operations.


  • Type and edit text on a fully-resizable circle
  • Freely position text using a clock-hand guide and a control handle
  • Show an adjustable disk or a ring as a background
  • Show and hide guides
  • Change the text orientation for around-the-top or around-the-bottom text
  • Left-, center-, or right-align text relative to the clock-hand control
  • Change the baseline of the text
  • Increase or decrease the spacing between characters
