Open Visio File In Lucidchart


Try the 'Free Visio Viewer (Mac, Windows, Linux)' add-on in Chrome, by LucidChart. I just tried it in Ubuntu 14.04. It seems to work well. As far as using LibreOffice goes, it's May 2018 and I'm using LibreOffice, and unfortunately LibreOffice Draw still won't open.vdx files as far as I can tell. Instructor If you'd like to send your Lucidchart document to someone else so they can open and edit it in Lucidchart, or another charting and diagramming program, like Microsoft Visio, one supported way to do that is to export a Visio document. Exporting a Visio document is a very straightforward process.

- [Instructor] If you'd like to send your Lucidchart document to someone else so they can open and edit it in Lucidchart, or another charting and diagramming program, like Microsoft Visio, one supported way to do that is to export a Visio document. Exporting a Visio document is a very straightforward process. You just go to file, and then export. And then I'm going to choose Visio VSDX. And this has created a standalone file that can be imported back into Lucidchart or into another program. The result when it's imported, isn't always perfect, but it's usually pretty close. Let me show you what it looks like when it's imported back into Lucidchart. I'm going to go back to documents and click on new, and then import, and then Visio. And we will select our exported Visio right here. And import. And let's take a look at that document. All right, so a few irregularities in the bulleting, and a couple of spacing issues,…

Lucidchart offers a suite of free Visio Viewers across 4 popular channels: Chrome, Firefox, Confluence, and any other web application (with our exclusive API). Each viewer is completely free to download and use, and there’s no catch -- no licenses or fees are required to view documents.

These viewers represent a new level of freedom for anyone who accesses Microsoft Visio files on a regular basis. If you or your colleagues are without Visio licenses or work on a Mac, this is a great workaround solution. Our viewers are compatible with any operating system or modern browser, and just like the standard version of Lucidchart, they support .vsd, .vsdx, and .vdx file types.

Visio Viewer for Chrome & Firefox

Our Visio viewer allows Chrome & Firefox users to open any online Visio file in read-only mode. You can also open attached Visio files inside your Gmail or Google Apps account. The viewers are easy to install and use.

To open Visio files from your email: Gmail and Google Apps users can view and edit Visio files attached to their emails by clicking the “Open in Lucidchart” button next to their Visio attachments.


To open Visio files from a website: With the extension installed, users can open Visio files posted on the web by right-clicking the hyperlink and selecting “View in Lucidchart.' For more detailed installation and use instructions for the Visio Viewers or the API, please see Visio import and export page.

Visio Viewer for Confluence

Our Confluence plugin enables your entire organization to view Visio files for free. To install the plugin, just click here or navigate to Lucidchart’s listing in the Atlassian Marketplace, then download as you would any other plugin. The viewing functionality is bundled with our diagramming application, but you won’t need a paid license to use the Visio Viewer.

We’ve also designed a simpler, more intuitive flow for modifying and inserting diagrams in your Confluence instance. Simply type a curly brace, followed by “Lucidchart”, and select Lucidchart’s macro from the list that appears. You’ll be taken directly to a page where you can select a desired diagram. The diagram will be inserted at the curly brace while you’re still in edit mode. Users can modify size and other elements quickly and easily.

Transparent PNG download

Lucidchart users can also download any diagram as a PNG with transparent background. This feature allows users to create beautiful images that look good against any background, not just white ones. Transparent PNGs enable a host of creative applications for presentations and web design, so try them today!

IE8 no longer supported

Lucidchart Free Trial

Since June 2013, Lucidchart no longer supports Internet Explorer 8. We apologize for the inconvenience that this change may cause. However, our team has researched usage information and discovered that less than 0.2% of work done in Lucidchart actually occurred in IE8. Given the considerable difficulties of supporting an antiquated browser, we’ve decided to phase out support for IE8 to focus on an incredible experience for the vast majority of users. For an optimal experience, we recommend Chrome or another modern browser, such as Firefox or Internet Explorer 10.
