UML Sequence templates cannot be found in Visio 2016


Cannot found shapes for UML Sequence diagram in Visio 2016


Drawing UML 2.5 diagrams with Visio 2016 (even with the Standard edition)

copy one of the following two basic templates for UML (may be even other ones): BASIC_UMLSEQUENCE_M.VSTX or BASIC_UMLSEQUENCE_U.VSTX

from: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\Visio Content\1033

to: C:\Users\{user-account}\Documents\My Shapes

then open that file from More Shapes ->My Shapes ->Favorites section and have the basic UML diagrams available to be used with the drag&drop feature
