How do I convert Visio stencils to TouchDraw libraries?

TouchDraw doesn't (yet) support automatic import of Visio stencil files, so you'll have to go through a small manual process to convert them over. Here's is the process that you need to do:

  1. Create a new drawing in Visio.
  2. Add the stencils that you want to import to TouchDraw into that drawing.
  3. Save that drawing as a VDX file.
  4. Import the VDX file into TouchDraw.
  5. Add a new library into TouchDraw.
  6. Select each stencil shape individually and add them to the library.

Can Adobe Illustrator open the files that TouchDraw exports?

TouchDraw doesn't support exporting to Illustrator native format (AI); however Illustrator can open the SVG and PDF files that TouchDraw exports just fine.
