One would think this would be a relatively simple procedure, or at least the answer would be available with a web search. However, multiple web searches yielded no results. All of the results told me to right-click, which does not provide any information on how to add the shape to Favorites, unless I'm missing something.
I'm using Microsoft Visio Professional 2019. I want to add a shape to Favorites, under My Shapes.
That way, I'll be able to locate shapes quickly.
I am unable to find any documentation about how to perform this procedure.

If you select it on the stencil, not the drawing, you should be able to select the "add to my shapes" > My Shapes > Favorites. Make sure you are clicking on the shape in the stencil. Does that help?

@Chas Burdick Yes, this works. Now I understand how to get a shape into Favorites.
Here is why this approach counterintuitive and makes the user experience more difficult:
Any shape on a page should be able to be added to Favorites without having to reverse direction and attempt to remember which stencil it came from.
