Simple Visio Issues


I have looked around but cannot see any simple answers to some baseline issues with Visio expport.

I am using Pro


I am also needing to use Visio 2016 64bit on PC.

My 2 big issues seem like it might be a simple answer but I can’t figure it out… Any help would be great

When going to visio from OG Pro Everything transfers seemingly ok but all the text in every box is now at the bottom of any box and there seems to be no way to recenter it simply ?

When I import Visio to Omnigraffle I lose all the connectors and have issues with anything that is in a container

A FAQ from OG would be good for this or if someone knows a simple fix that would really help :-)


How are you exporting/importing? Using the Export dialog and then selecting Visio (XML)? Since it is XML, you could open the exported file in a text editor and read through it searching for one of your text boxes and see if the attributes are correct (location, alignment, etc).

To import, are you using Place Image?

Just as a curiosity, have you tried exporting/importing as SVG instead?


We’d be glad to help. If you can send an example of the issue, we may be able to recommend a workaround. Email us from Contact Omni in the Help menu. Sending us an example of both the import and export issue, if possible, would helps us isolate the problem.


Thanks, I have the option for visio XML .VDX export which i used. Also tried .SVG (Thanks)

Both same result Text appears in the lower bottom part of the visio object and can’t be reformatted by selecting paragraph options like alignment
