Power Point 2007 - edit Freeform shapes

by Shawn_VB / January 27, 2009 5:39 AM PST

When trying to edit points on a ?Freeform? shape using the office 2007 Microsoft drawing features, it won?t let me edit the points to the exact locations I need them. My ?snap to grid? is disabled but the program is acting as if it is trying to set my points to a preset location on the screen. The Office 2003 versions and earlier did not have this problem and I was able to manipulate points and set them exactly where I needed them. Another thing it does is to assume that if you have several points together in close proximity that you must be wanting the point segments to be curved and it automatically changes them for you weather you want it or not.
