I am relatively new to building custom stencils and solutions in Visio. I am
using Visio 2003.
I have a problem where I have created a custom stencil with master shapes
and have created custom properties for them. When I open the vss stencil file
directly, and open a master, I am able to see the custom properties and see
them in the shapesheet. However, when I open the stencil to use in a drawing,
and drop an instance of the master on the drawing, I cannot see the custom
properties. I get an error that "No Custom Properties Exist", and there are
no properties listed in the shapesheet view.
Can someone explain what step I haven't taken to force the instances to
alway inherit the custom properties from the masters?
