  • Gliffy diagram (.gxml)
  • Visio diagram (.vsdx or .vdx)
  • Draw.io diagram (.drawio or .xml)
  • Lucidchart diagram(JSON format; these flies do not have a file extension)

1. From the original diagramming tool, export your diagram and save it on your computer.

2. Start a new Gliffy diagram (see Adding diagrams to a Confluence page).

3. In the Gliffy start screen, click Import a Diagram.

4. Click Browse and locate your exported diagram file.

5. Double-click the file to select it. The diagram opens in the Gliffy editor.
