Default Two identical graphics, one visible in Draft view, the other not

A Word 2007 document contains several graphics (flowcharts) that were
created in Visio (2003), copied to the clipboard (Ctrl-C), and pasted
into the Word document (Ctrl-V).

I have been working on this document for some time as well as others
like it. I usually view these documents in Print View because the
graphics are not visible in Draft View (they display as empty white
space or the light blue field if selected).

Today, I happened to shift to Draft View and discovered that most, but
not all, of the graphics were visible. In one case, the same graphic
was in the document twice right next to each other. One was visible
and oine was not.

I did a little experimenting and discovered that the way it is pasted
in makes a difference. If I use Alt+Ctrl+V to paste and select
"Microsoft Visio Dreawing Object", it will be visible in both Print
and Draft View. If I select any other option, it is only visible in
Print View.



I discovered another anomoly. If I paste the graphic twice, one right
after the other, the first one will be visible in Draft View and the
second one will not.

Repeating this sequence, I copied the image from Visio, then used
Alt+Ctrl+V to paste it into Word taking the default option "Microsoft
Visio Dreawing Object". A second Alt+Ctrl+V shows only one option,
"Device Independent Bitmap".

Why do the paste options change?
