Under Consideration

Import from Visio fails


I am currently trying to import a large amount of existing processes in .vsd format into Bizagi Modeler. However, the resulting import is blank. I suspect this is because of a custom stencil used in our original drawings, see the attachment.

Is there a way to manually configure this to ensure a successful import?

Thank you.

Dear Eirik,

We recommend to upgrade your current version to and then follow these steps:

Microsoft Office Visio is a very common tool for diagramming processes. Bizagi Modeler allows you to import such processes to enable editing and manipulation.

To import diagrams from Visio, follow the steps below:

1. On the Export/Import tab, in the Import group, click Visio.


2. Select the stencil used in Visio to diagram the process.

If you click on the Mapping option, you will see the similarity between each of the elements used in the Visio Stencil and those of Bizagi Modeler.


3. Click the OK button and upload the Visio file to be imported.


4. You will be able to modify the process in Bizagi Modeler after import.
