Hi everyone.

I upgraded recently from Visio 2007 to Visio 2013.  When doing so, I can open old Visio drawings which had the background Orbit for example and still use the background.  However, when I wanted to switch this to a different background, and try to look at Shapes>Visio Extras>Backgrounds; it no longer exists. 

Does anyone know if this is in Visio 2013 and if not, where I can download those backgrounds or any other cool backgrounds?

Thank you.

That stencil was removed in Visio 2010. Copy it from a Visio 2007 installation.

Thank you for the info.  Does anyone have a link to where I can download them as I don't have a copy of Visio 2007 any longer? 

Thanks again everyone and have a great weekend.
