Problem importing xpdl/bpm subprocess

I have a subprocess that is used in several processes. I modelled it in a separate .bpm file with the exporting it in xpdl format and importing in the different processes that use it.

When I import the subprocess xpdl file in a process, the visual formatting is all messed up. The sequence flow, association and message flow connectors which I carefully placed to make the diagram easy to read end up all misplaced and entangled, making the diagram unreadable (see attached "before" and "after" images).

Additionally, the font is set to "Segoe UI" through out the diagram, even though the BPMN element default font is set to "Microsoft Sans Serif" in the option menu.

The whole point of reusable subprocesses is to model them only once and import them everywhere they are used. If a modification is made to the original diagram, it propagates everywhere it's been referenced.

If I need to fix the diagram every time I import it, it completely misses the point.

Is there a way to import a reusable subprocess that doesn't mess up the diagram's layout?

Please advise.

Dear Juan,

Thank you for getting back to me.

Here is a copy of the model's BPM file, along with the generated XPDL export.

Good afternoon!I do not know if I'm asking in the right place ... sorry

We all processes published in the wiki and a single .bpm source file available on the network.

Any user can download the file .bpm source make suggestions, request approval to submit an analyst who must import the changed diagram for the default font file .bpm

For this process to happen we need to import this file to source the diagram made by the user, but this is not possible because the 32-bit version BizAgi 2.9.0.4 is regardless of the properties of the user-written activity.

I used all the options menu in the export / import but the BizAgi did not matter properties. You have any solutions?

Dear Edimar,

To solve this question, you can do in two ways: One is Saving as collaborative file where Team Collaboration is a feature that allows teams to participate simultaneously in the definition of a process, aiding innovation and delivering efficiency across organizations.(where_to_share) For further information, check this video: video_example_collaboration

Another way is to export to BPMN (exporting_to_bpmn) However, doing in this way or XPDL, you cannot export extended attributes. The only way to do that is using the following option: sharing_extended_between_elements.

Juan, thanks for the return !!!

The template that you downloaded, the properties are set and are standard. I need to copy what has already been completed by the user to another file.

I did not want to take a ctrl + C and CTRL + V on each property element. There is an automated fashion?

If I use sharing_extended_between_elements, will double the attributes.

Dear Sebastien,

After reviewing as it is implemented export functionality to XPDL, we found that when one exports a diagram to an XPDL file,Bizagi does not export information from the ports where the SequenceFlows are bonded to the other elements, not exported because adding these properties to xml file does not comply with the norm (it would not be compliant) and could not be imported from another tool. The same applies to the format information, text size and location.
