OmniGraffle Professional’s feature set includes support for importing Microsoft® Visio® files, templates, and stencils in the .vsd, .vsdx, .vdx, .vst, .vtx, .vss, and .vsx formats. Support for Visio® 2013 .vsdx documents was introduced in OmniGraffle 6.1 for Mac and OmniGraffle 2.0 for iOS.
OmniGraffle can also export to the Visio® XML document format, .vdx, which can be read by Visio® 2003 and later. Visio® import/export support is a Pro-only feature, so the Standard version of OmniGraffle does not support import or export of Visio® documents.
To import your Visio® file on Mac, double-click the file in Finder to open OmniGraffle, or drag the Visio® file to the OmniGraffle icon in your dock. On iOS, tap and hold the Visio® attachment in your email or other app to show the Open In popup. Select Open in OmniGraffle to add the file to OmniGraffle’s document picker. The first time you save your file after importing, it’ll be converted into OmniGraffle’s native file format.
If you’ve previously purchased the Standard version of OmniGraffle for Mac, you can upgrade to Pro at any time. Direct customers can purchase an upgrade license from our web store, and Mac App Store customers can head over to the menu bar and select OmniGraffle > In-App Purchase… to upgrade.
OmniGraffle 3 for iOS offers a Pro feature set (including Visio® support) that can be unlocked via an In-App Purchase.
We’re pleased to offer a 14-day fully-featured trial of OmniGraffle for Mac and OmniGraffle for iOS. The absolute best way to determine if OmniGraffle is a good fit for your use is to spend some hands-on time with the app and try out our Visio® support for yourself!
