Description Michael von Glasow 2016-11-11 18:36:43 UTC
Currently, Dia has support for importing newer Vision .vdx files but not .vsd (binary) files generated with older versions of Visio.

A lot of work on VSD parsing has already been done in libvisio, which is used by LibreOffice ( It's under MPL 2.0, thus it should be compatible with the GPL2+ license of Dia.
