  • The assumption is that you are doing a paste special, either in a metafile format or visio object.

  • Hi,

    Just researched for *.vss file in the computer, it's quite a trick to understand which stencil file relates to a particular category of stencils but it's not too difficult to guess that COMPS_M.VSS file has something to do with computers.

    To make sure that you have selected the right VSS file, just double click it -- this opens the resulting stencil shapes library as a floating window. This floating window is certainly an instance of Visio, but it doesn't show the rest of the Visio interface. If this is not the stencils that you were looking for, just shut the floating window, and double-click any other VSS file.

    Follow the steps to use the Visio Stencil files in PowerPoint:

    1. Double click the file which you want to use the shapes in then launch PowerPoint. Create a new slide so that you can drag the shapes to this slide.
    2. Select any shape within the floating Visio window, then drag the shape to the empty PowerPoint slide.
    3. Then right click the sharp, it will show "Visio Object" in the context menu, then it indicates that this is a Visio object.
    4. With the shape selected on the slide, copy the shape then Paste Special -> Choose Picture (Enhanced Metafile) and click OK.
    5. This will place the Visio object as a picture on PowerPoint slide.
      Now that the shape is a native PowerPoint slide object, you can delete the earlier Visio shape.

    As for Excel, the same steps to do.
