Um, thanks but.... What I have is a drawing... a .vsd file.

In that FILE I see a shape that I want to find in a stencil.

What I'm trying to DO is find the Shapes pane among the forest of such
panes (aptly yclept, them) that contains the shape I see in the drawing.

(I rather figure that a developer writing a spec would find a collection
of shapes -- a template or stencil or whatever -- that suits his/her
needs; and I'd like to backtrack FROM the resulting drawing to the
collection the author used in creating the drawing.)
