    I'm curious, what's the reason you've embedded a Visio diagram inside another Visio diagram?

    Are there any right click options along the lines of 'edit special' or 'open with...'?

    Can you embed a Visio drawing in Word or Excel on the same system and edit in-place?

    the user embedded a visio within a word doc and when they double click on the visio drawing they are able to open it in visio.
