OK... Here's what should be a simpler Visio question.

I have inherited some .vsd files. I see shapes in one .vsd file that
strike me as coming from a stencil (such as a dog-eared page).

My copy of Visio has lots of template categories, organized into families.

I can search by word or phrase for a shape, and get a bunch of them
displayed at the left of the work area, but is there any way to say "what
template category" or "what stencil set" is this one (of the dozen
displayed) belongs to?
