Add a new page in Visio

New drawing files open with only one page, but you can add as many pages as you want.

Each new drawing page inherits the size, orientation, scale, measurement unit, shadow offset, ruler, and grid settings of the page currently displayed in the drawing window by default. However, you can change any of those settings for the new page.

To quickly add a page to your drawing —simply click the + or the Insert Page icon at the bottom of the drawing window.

Alternatively, to create a new page with custom properties such as scaling or size, do the following:

  1. In the lower-left of the drawing window, right-click a page tab Page tab , and then click Insert.

  2. In the Page Properties tab, and either type a name for the page or use the default name.

  3. To change the scale or size of the new page, click the Drawing Scale or the Page Size tabs and make any appropriate changes.

  4. Click OK.
