File sharing on a team: 2013 with 2007 and 2010 users?
« on: May 30, 2013, 01:50:23 PM »
Newbie question covered mostly in the subject line, but here are my details:

I work with a team that's - so far - worked rather seamlessly sharing vsd 2007 & 2010 files.  I've just read several forum posts here that suggest that even saving the file in vsd format is a challenge.  I ASSUME that the vsdx isn't particularly backward-compatible?

Thanks for your help!

Hello Steve,

You're right, the new VSDX is not backwards compatible, but 2013 can open and save in the older vsd format. 

Are you having a specific issue with saving legacy vsd files using 2013?  If so, what are the problems you encountering and what template and stencils are you using?

Best regards

John

Note that some of the internal shape formats in Visio 2010/2013 are totally incompatible with earlier versions, e.g. UML, cross-functional flowchart, any containers, and maybe other shapes.
