Setup / Configuration / .INI for VISIO Technical 4.1

Was this post useful to you?

I'm using VISIO 4.1 Technical, and wanted to know how to properly configure how the templates and the directories for using templates and stencils are used.

I used to have a "Basic" template that I used frequently, but when I upgraded to 4.1 1000 years ago, now all I can see is a General Drawing Layout, which doesn't include the Basic Shapes stencil.

When I go to open up the stencil, VISIO doesn't open up the stencil directory by default, it has me in the Drawings directory.

Is there an ini file that I need to edit to make this all work "right", and is there a reference I could consult to learn how to maybe toggle between VISIO always opening in the same default directory, or using the Last Used directory when opening or saving a drawing, etc?
