No distortions, just double click to open

This app is worth a premium. I do a lot of high end Visio work with custom stencils (Cisco, Riverbed, Juniper, etc.). I use VMware fusion to switch to Windows for that. However, just to browse existing Visio files, this app does the trick. You can either drag files to it for conversion or simply double click a *.vsd file to open. Make sure you go into Preferences and check “Render metafiles with transparent backgrounds.” Otherwise you may see white blobs of space for shapes with transparency. I checked some pretty complex vsd files with gradients and custom stencils. I can’t see any distortions or text artifacts. This is the app to get. Well worth the $15.


I'm So glad to download this VSD Viewer today! It goes beyond the abilities that are revealed in the former one I had used. Now I can open VSD files on my mac easily and view files with zoom-in/out and more functions!!! Also I can Save it to PDF for distribution. Amazing!
