Hello experts,

For years when Visio was used there was over on the left under the Clipboard group a Shapes dialogue box that allowed one to open groups of Shapes and search for Shapes.

Now no longer is the Shapes box not there it cannot be found anywhere in the application. The only thing that I can think of that I did to change the application was open a dialogue called Drawing Explorer.

How do I get the Shapes and Stencils dialogue box back?
