How can I obtain a programmatic reference to the document stencil?

I need to be able to drop shapes using VBA from the document stencil. I
normally use the Page.Drop method and supply a master from a named stencil.
How can I get a reference to the document's stencil?

the 'document stencil' is actually the collection of masters in the
working document

dim visMasters as visio.masters
visMasters = application.activedocument.masters

Thanks for the response, I think this will be useful. I had called
OpenStencilWindow method of the ThisDocument object and explored the window
object in the VBA debugger. I found that the Window had a Document property
and I was able to use the Masters collection of that property to do what I
wanted. With your info, I now have at least two ways of locating masters.

Thanks.
