Export Gliffy diagrams to vcd or other Visio compatible format.

SVG format (which Gliffy exports to) can be read by Visio

As of Gliffy version 6, your prior statement is no longer true.

What users are seeking is an intermediate diagram exchange format which prevents lock in of our data.

Visio is serving as a de facto standard but we would be open to alternatives.

Whatever the exchange format it would still need to be importable to Visio.

Does Gliffy have a position with regards to customers who are concerned about lock in of their data?

Hi Sebastien,

This is correct.  SVG export was removed in Gliffy for Confluence 6.0.  This decision was made for technical reasons, and definitely NOT because we want to lock you in to a certain format.  The only workaround currently is to install a pre 6.0 version of Gliffy for Confluence.  If SVG export is important to you, I definitely recommend switching back to an older version.

We are, however, working on this.  In good faith, I estimate that it will be a month or two before we get SVG export back in to the product.

I need to edit some Visio files as part of a project I am working on for a client, but I don't have Visio and don't want to buy it. I am looking for something that can both import and export Visio files without loss of quality. Can Gliffy do this?

Hi Anita,

Gliffy can import Visio files in .vdx format, but we cannot export in .vdx or a Visio specific format. SVG export is able to be read by Visio.
