A theme is not applied to a shape when the shape is pasted into a page that has a theme applied in Visio 2007

When you copy a shape and then paste the shape into a Microsoft Office Visio 2007 drawing that has a theme applied to the page, the theme is not applied to the shape. Instead, the attributes of the shape do not change.

This behavior may occur even though the Apply theme to new shapes check box is selected on the Theme task pane.


This behavior occurs if you copy the shape before you apply the theme to the page.


To work around this behavior, reapply the theme to the page. Do this only when you want all the shapes on the page to have the same theme applied.
