How to detect the Stencil used in a diagram


Hi, I’m reviewing the documentation of the library, and I need to know if possible to detect automatically the stencil used in a diagram, for example if the diagram contains shapes of ‘BPMN standard’ or ‘basic flow chart’.

Can you help me? Thank you!!



Thanks for contacting support.

Would you please share a sample Visio file with us. We will further test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.


Thanks for answer me, for example this diagram (‘2007’) contains Flow chart shapes, so I need to know if possible to detect automatically the Stencil according to the shapes. Other example is the file ‘New’, which contains shapes of the BPMN standard. My question is, can I to know the Stencil according to the shapes or the Masters or other item? I work with the following Stencils: Visio BPMN, Visio Basic Flow chart, Frapu BPMN, iServer BPMN, ITP Process Modeler, Tomislav BPMN.

Thank you so much.
