Re: Importing Visio drawing into FrameMaker

Hello Eliram,

You can also import Visio drawings into Word (Windows) docs, save as RTF, 
then import the RTF into Frame. The Visio drawings become WMF files that 
can be copied into other documents.

One caveat here--print the results to make sure callouts are positioned 
properly. Sometimes this conversion causes text to overrun bounding boxes, etc.

Good luck,

Tom Neuburger
