OOo Draw Import / Export Visio Diagrams [closed]

Just read this question by Jason S and it reminded me that I'm interested in a means of importing / exporting between Visio & OOo Draw (primarily using OOo to edit Visio files).

"You could try converting your Visio 2003 files to SVG. That's the only way that might work. I know Visio can open SVGs and convert them into a Visio binary file.

Maybe the SVG files created by Visio can be read by OOo Draw."

"The old Visio binary format is not well-known, and as far as I can remember, there's no real documentation on it... No-one has yet reverse-engineered it...

The new Visio XML format (.VDX) is better known, and there are some VDX->SVG converters around. If you can get the files saved as Visio XML, then you might have more luck.

(Disclaimer: this was the state of play about a year ago, from my memory. Some things might have changed since then...)"
