Good morning,

with the new Aris feature enabling Visio 2007 (XML format) import, I am trying to map a certain Visio stencil that we use to the Aris equivalent (BPMN 1.X). I have tried through the administration module (Evaluations, Reports, Viso import), right mouse click on the mapping.xml line, configure Visio Mapping, but that don't seem to work. There is also the visioshapes.xml file which seems to be editable, but I don't want to touch that for now.

Any ideas or experiences with this issue.

Best regards,

Christian Tasse

Hello Christian,

Did you find a solution? If so, can you share it?

In ARIS help I found information about importing Visio models. In Visio you should save the Visio model in vxd-format (choose save as... > visio drawing (dutch: XML tekening).

When I import the file I get the following error message:

''the model type and/or required symbols are not allowed by the current method filter. The import was canceled.''

What can I do?
