Re-Layout Process Map in Visio
When processes are exported to visio, the coordinates of all shapes are not exported. The maps therefore require a re-layout of the map in Visio before they are readable.
1. Open the .vsdx file containing your exported process in Microsoft Visio
2. Select the “Design” tab
3. Select the “Re-Layout Page” menu
4. Click “Left to Right” (as shown in the screenshot below)
5. Once re-layout is applied, you should see a map similar to the one in EPC when in Swimlane format.
