I wanted to create an Organisational Chart of uncertain size, so set up Impress with a large master slide Page size. My chart was completed easily - very good. Then I realised I'd been way over the top with my estimate of the space needed and wanted to "cut off the bottom half of my drawing space".

So, back to Slide Master | Format | Page and alter the size settings. Unfortunately, Impress not only reduces the canvas size, but also tries to intelligently** rescale everything to suit, which is not what I want. ** Although it resizes the boxes, it leaves font sizes the same, so the result was an unhappy and unusable mess.

Luckily, the workaround is easy; copy all the original boxes and connections to clipboard, resize the page, clear the debris, then paste back the good boxes.

But is there some technique that I haven't noticed for effectively cropping off, or adding on, the page size without rescaling the content, please?

Thanks.
