Visio Professional - creating Stencils

New Contributor



I have created a couple of EPC custom stencils with different colour backgrounds (to distinguish between SAP ERP system manual steps, SAP ERP system automatic steps, etc).


But when I pull the stencil onto the page, the colour changes - most probably due to the theme selected.  I need the stencil colours to stay consistent and not change, even if the theme has changed.


How do I go about this?

I've found a work-around:
1) I selected a fairly basic Theme (one that must be applied to all of the Visio worksheets).
2) Dragged the stencil onto the page (the colours changed to match the newly selected style).
3) I then updated the colours to what I wanted on the worksheet.
4) Replaced the stencil with the updated stencil.
