I recently installed MS Office Visio 2016. Today while doing my first major project in it, it seemed to be working fine. I was doing on my work on a signle page. At one point I had a large section of a flowchart that I could reuse for another area so I marque selected it, copy and pasted. No problem. I then moved it where I wanted it. Again, no problem. Then I went to save it and it crashed. Here is the crash report:

I am running Windows 7 64bit 32GB of memory.

I have tried this several times with smaller selections and trying to do a Save As instead of Save. No joy.

I then ran sfc /scannow with no errors coming up. I started Visio in safe mode and it still crashes when I try this. Of course I tried rebooting as well.

I ran across a few boards where it said the problem is a bluetooth add-on. I checked for this add-on (file>options>Add-Ins) and do not have it on my Visio installation.

I finally figured it must be the 2016 version itself. I Uninstalled it completely and then install Visio 2013. Same problem still happens in 2013 as 2016.

Finally, I decide to see what would happen if I did a new page. So I created Page 2 in my document, the selected the area I wanted to copy from Page 1, copied, pasted it to page 2 and savied without crashing!

I have since been able to cut and paste within page 2 with the exact same items from I was getting the crash with from page 1 without issue. If I got back to page one and try with it, it crashes again.

Finally, I deleted page 1 to see if it was just that page and crash! Weirdest thing I have ever encountered.

I need my document to be a single page, so I want to solve this. I also have a bunch of new work that I just got and it will require me to produce a lot of flowcharts, so I can't have this happening.

Anyone have any ideas of further troubleshooting I should try? Thank you for your help!
