There are scant few examples of Controls (the yellow handles) that I can

find. Does anyone know where I can find a "Puzzles in the Controls Section"

of the Visio ShapeSheet list of examples?

I have found a few in the architectural stencils provided in Visio.

There are two cases in particular I'd like to implement:

1) Provide two control points at either end of a hidden straight line, such

that they move along (are constrained to) the geometric extension of that

line but are initially at some scale invariant outlying distance from either

end. Like so: . ________ . Reason for this is to control the

distribution of shapes along the line, since their shapesheets can depend on

the controls.

2) Simply enhance a shape's existing green handle by overlaying a yellow

control handle on top. Does this involve glue? Which way does the glue go

and how do I glue to, say, the height handle of a 1-D shape such that the

height handle and the yellow handle track each other throughout all possible

avenues of change?

Thank you,
