UML Sequence templates cannot be found in Visio 2016

Problem: 

Cannot found shapes for UML Sequence diagram in Visio 2016

Solution: 

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
