Is it possible to import PNG files into a Visio stencil?

I have images that I need to use in Visio on a regular basis.
I use them so often I don't want to have to use Insert, Picture, From File, and find the directory every time.

Yes -- just use Insert>Picture>From File to place an image on the drawing page, then drag it into a stencil. You can either drag it into an existing stencil (after you open the stencil for writing) or select File>Shapes>New Stencil to create one from scratch.

BTW, if you want the image shape to contain data or have any other special attributes, just add them before you drag the image into the stencil.

Regards,
Scott
