How to convert a Visio file to a PDF.

Turn your Visio diagram into a share-able, secure PDF document with these easy steps.

Visio is useful software for drawing diagrams, like flowcharts, org charts, process flow diagrams, floor plans, you name it. However, when it’s time to share your diagram with others, you want to make sure everyone can open and read it — regardless of whether their operating system supports Visio.

Save your co-workers, teammates and colleagues the headache of trying to open your Visio file — convert your VSD or VSDX file to a PDF before you share it.

Quick steps to convert Visio to PDF.

With Adobe Acrobat, you can easily convert format files to PDFs that can be shared. Depending on which version of Visio you’re working in, the steps may be slightly different but every version should support PDF conversion.

If you’re working in the 2016 version, follow these steps in Visio:

  1. Select File, then Export
  2. Click Create PDF/XPS
  3. Choose where you want to save your file
  4. Name your file and click Publish

It’s as simple as those four steps. If you’re working in an earlier Visio version, the same general steps should apply. You basically want to find the File option, and create a PDF from there.

Get document flexibility.
