How do I copy a re-sized shape in Visio 2010?

In previous versions of 2010, it's easy and straight forward - just right-click the selected shape, copy, and paste it as many times as one likes. But in this new version, the shape pasted goes back to the original size rather than the resized object. Is there a way to do it?

Just tried it on mine, resized, Copy pasted the same resized several times, didn't default back to original.

What object did you use ? ,I can see if It replicates here.

Maybe some settings someplace ?

Using Organization chart template shapes.

All default settings - haven't changed anything.

Ok - Replicated the problem, and also found the cause - fixing it is another matter:

The org-chart shapes are controlled by an addon that sits in the background, when you paste the shapes it overwrites the size you set.
