What is VSDX file?

Files with the VSDX extension are files of the Microsoft Vision – a component of the Microsoft Office suite, since its 2013 version. This program enables to create different types of diagrams, charts, drawings and technical illustrations. VSDX file transfers data concerning details of documents created in Visio.

Structure of a VSDX file

  • Masters – a collection of co-shared pages’ layouts.
  • VisioDocument – sequence of pages and collection of resources
  • Pages – layout and graphic elements for single pages of the document.
  • Shapes – graphic elements and their properties.
  • Data connections – a collection of rules, describing the process of downloading the external data, which may affect the final look of a document.

In the previous versions of the program, the binary format VSD was utilised to store the data. VSDX are ZIP file packages, created according to the Open XML standard, containing separate files with specific data from the diagrams, such as descriptions, images, and no macros. A file format which includes macros is VSDM, but due to higher vulnerability toward attacks, it requires higher protection. VSDX files utilise lossless compression.

Advantages of VSDX format

Like all the file types based on the Open XML format, VSDX files are characterised with an easy access to specific data, contained within the file. This requires changing VSDX extension into ZIP and unpacking it with any program enabling decompression of files.
