I went through some real pain on this a couple of years ago. From memory, what
we found was that:
. My understanding is that FrameMaker cannot embed .vsds
. Most of the export filers in Visio produced what one could politely call
. The specific deficiencies of the various export filters varied with the
revision of Visio in use
. The 'best' (used in a very relative sense) option was to export from Visio as
.emf, import .emf into Illustrator, touch up there, export as .eps from
Illustrator, and import the .eps into FrameMaker.
. This was all on the Mac, and the situation on PC FrameMaker may be different.
. Things may have improved in the interim (although I'm not hopeful)
