Chapter 21. Customizing Shapes and Solutions > Visio and XML File Formats

Visio and XML File Formats

Since the 2002 edition, Visio has supported Extensible Markup Language (XML) file formats. XML goes beyond HTML in describing file content and has quickly become a new standard for Web-based data. In Visio, the .vdx (drawing file), .vsx (stencil file), and .vtx (template file) extensions are the XML equivalents of .vsd, .vss, and .vst. You can export and import Visio files in XML format by using the standard Save As and Open commands on the File menu, as Figure 21-7 shows. In the Save As or Open dialog box, choose the appropriate XML format in the Save As Type or Files Of Type list.

Figure 21-7. In the Save As dialog box, the XML file formats appear in the Save As Type list.
