In the process of creating a flowchart in Visio, I've added some Word documents (*.doc) as embedded objects. I choose Insert->Object, Create from File, and then Display as icon.

Yesterday, I added three Word docs with no issues. today, as I add another, I'm no longer able to see the icon for the file. Even when I choose the icon in the picker, and type a custom name for the object, an "invisible" icon gets embedded.

Here's one from yesterday:

I've tried moving the shape to the foreground or background, starting with a fresh VSD, and even rebooting, with no success. I'm using Word 2007 and Visio 2003.

Any idea what's going on?
