I'm using Visio 2016. I have a function called "Insert_Below" in which I drop a master onto a page. I have an action setup on another shape that calls "Insert_Below" like so
' Shape - Action in shape sheet

' In "Insert_Below"
Set newShp = pg.Drop(mstr, x, y)

Normally when I add a shape by dragging it over from the stencil, the Shape Data Dialog opens because I have a couple shape data fields set to ask on drop. But, when the action runs I do not get a shape data dialog for the shape that's added, "newShp" above.

Can I force the dialog to open for newShp in some way?
