I've been trying to import a Visio .vsd file into the draw.io web application, without success. I've seen various online references to Visio import being supported, but no exact steps.

I've tried "File->Open From" and dragging and dropping the file into a blank diagram, but nothing appears to happen.


draw.io online supports the legacy .vsd format and the .vsdx format, which is the default format from the 2013 and 2016 versions of the tool.

The actual process of importing to either drag and drop the .vsd(x) file into a diagram, use "File->Import From", or "File->Open From".

If you have issues with a .vsd(x) after you convert, please look at the draw.io support site on how to get help, this site is for usage questions only, rather than bugs and issues.

Note that the Confluence Server and Quip integrations of draw.io do not support .vsd or .vdx import.
