Microsoft Visio drawings (.vsd) can output in a variety of formats: .JPG, XML templates, webpages, AutoCAD drawings, and others. Now, with a simple Microsoft add-in, Visio images can be saved as PDF or XPS files, too. These file types make Visio drawings viewable by those who don’t use Microsoft Office.
PDF (Portable Document Format) is a fixed-layout electronic file format. XPS (XML Paper Specification) also preserves the file formatting and enables file sharing.
