 +__Update Stencil Master BaseIDs__
 +
 +Warning - this is a very dangerous feature - only use it if you know what you are doing!
 +
 +If you create new master shapes you may need to change the shape'​s BaseID value, every master should have a different value, but this can only be changed programmatically. It appears to be very poorly documented.
 +
 +Ensure only one Visio document is open, open the stencil you wish to update, then use the utility to change the BaseID values. When you create a new shape put that shape into it's own stencil initially and update the master'​s BaseID in that stencil, then move the new shape into its destination stencil. You only need to do this once per master.
