Only download stencils from SharePoint if the drawing is using SharePoint stencils

We have noticed through our use of Visio desktop and SharePoint Online, that when we open a drawing in SharePoint, Visio attempts to download each stencil it uses from the same SharePoint location.

The issue is that these stencils are not held in SharePoint and are in fact on the local computer - the paths to which are recorded inside the drawing.

Yet Visio tries to download them, which adds 1 or 2 seconds wait, per stencil, to do so. Many of our drawings use 6 - 7 stencils, so this total wait time adds a noticeable delay.

Please restrict stencil downloading to stencils whose location, as directed by the drawing, is within SharePoint.

Thank you - a video demonstration of the problem is available on request.
