Microsoft Visio Supported File Formats

Visio supports more than 22 file formats and it allows you to import graphic images and vector based designs as metafiles into Visio drawings. But Bitmap images such as .pcx, .bmp, etc. always remain as bitmaps. It's better to convert the vector based graphic designs as Visio drawings as the editing in original file format gives unnecessary jagged lines in your Visio drawings. A list of popular file formats used in Visio Drawings:

  • Adobe Illustrator(.ai)
  • AutoCAD (.dwg)
  • CorelDraw(.cdr)
  • Enhanced Metafile (.emf)
  • PostScript File(.ps)
