This was extremely helpful. Thank you so much. One question I have is how can I add this scaling factor to all of my shapes' data so that they all update size automatically?
@Fawn - You could accomplish something like that in Visio using the Visio ShapeSheet. It would work by having a set of shapes use a Formula for their Width and Height that referenced another shape. If you scale this one shape all the rest will follow. If you would like I could show an example of how to do this.
