I get the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object..." error message while attempting to import a Visio file.

This bug (ignoring unsupported visio objects when importing) has been fixed in the version 2.3.0.5, released in May 2012.

I get this with Bizagi v2.3. I believe what is causing it is any viso diagram which contains object which Bizagi does not import such as text boxes and lines. Bizagi 2.2 I believe simply ignored these objects and did not import them, 2.3 seems to fails with this error. Remove all these tyes of objects and the visio should import. You can recreate this easily by creating a viso with a simple text box and try and import it.

I would like to see v2.3 to at least do the same as 2.2 and gracefully ignore objects that it does not want to import.
