Visio® Converter & Import Filter

Convert Visio® Files to SmartDraw without Visio®

Importing Visio® files in SmartDraw is easy. Just click File from the top ribbon bar, and then select Import on the left navigation bar.

SmartDraw will import a single Visio® file or let you convert an entire batch of files.

Import single Visio file

And you don't need to have a copy of Visio—SmartDraw will complete the conversion for you.

Select file

SmartDraw's Visio® import filter replicates the appearance of the drawing you created, but it will be saved in SmartDraw (.sdr) file format. Your converted Visio® drawing will be fully usable and editable in SmartDraw.

Converted Visio file

You can also import Visio® files into SmartDraw Cloud. Just go to the hamburger Menu in the upper right corner and choose Import Visio®. Browse to select the file or directory you want to convert and Cloud will upload then convert your selected files. Even the most complex shapes and diagrams will import reliably as fully editable SmartDraw diagrams and shapes. You'll be able to ungroup, change fill color, resize shapes and continue improving your Visio® diagrams using SmartDraw.
