Visio Stencil Shapes Wrong

Visio Stencils showing up weird and wrong.

This has been driving me slightly bonkers - on a few of my machines my Visio has not been able to display stencils properly. In effect I get some random filled in shapes like this:

Anyway, you know it's going to be something simple, right? It was - themes.

On the design tab, make sure you have 'No theme' selected when you import/open your stencil. That way it won't try and apply the theme to those stencils.


Things like this are enough to drive you to coffee.
