Import MS Visio vsd vdx files in Open Office

Hi there,

is there a filter or some add-on for OpenOffice 3.x.x Draw that allows importing of MS Viso vsd ord vdx files ? Visio can save in xml-Format and creates the file extension vdx. The regular OpenOffice 3.0.0 can read xml but not vdx.

Any Ideas ?

Thank you

I'm still looking for a VSD import filter...

Something that reads Visio files. No luck, and I've tried sK1, Inkscape, Dia, OpenOffice Draw...?
