Blank hyperlink added to shape

Ref: JB201108110923 
Last Edited: 22nd August, 2011
If an Activity's or Deliverable's Properties dialog is opened, and the Navigation tab visited, when the dialog is closed by clicking OK, a blank hyperlink may be added to the shape. No setting need be updated for this to happen.
If such a shape is exported to and then re-imported from Excel, the shape will display a shadow even though it may not have a meaningful hyperlink.
If the hyperlink doesn't have a meaningful target, then:
1. Delete the hyperlink from Visio's 'Hyperlinks' dialog.
2. Remove the shadow (if it exists) from the right-click action on the shape.
