Has anyone found a way to Export a pdf to Visio?

A colleague sends us Visio documents in pdf format. Although we can add text via the Acrobat edit tool, we would prefer to be able to edit the underlying document.

Since there is no "export to Visio" function available, I wonder if anyone else has faced this requirement and found a solution.

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

  1. Convert the PDF file to WMF or EMF (see which format produces the best results for your file) using pdf2picture.   WMF and EMF files are the native vector graphic formats for Microsoft applications. ...
  2. Open the WMF file in Visio. ...
  3. Adjust your drawing. ...
  4. Save as Visio Drawing.
