Top questions

  • Visio Professional 2013, Visio Standard 2013 and Visio Plan 1 and Visio Plan 2 introduce a new XML-based file format that earlier versions of Visio may be unable to open. Visio Professional 2016 and Visio Standard 2016 keep the XML-based file format. You can save files that were created in newer versions of Visio in the Visio 2003‑2010 Drawing (VSD) format, which earlier versions of Visio can open. To do this, on the File menu, choose Save As. Once a location has been selected, change the Save as type to Visio 2003-2010 Drawing.
  • When you open a file created with an earlier version of Visio in the new Visio, some features will be disabled for compatibility. Converting the file to the new Visio file format will enable all features. To convert a Visio 2003-2010 drawing to the new file format, on the File menu, click Info, and then click Convert.
