Default Editing Visio file after exporting from Bizagi modeler

I made a BPMN diagram in Bizagi modeler because I was waiting for a Visio license at work and when I was finished, I exported the diagram as a Visio file from Bizagi.

When I opened it in Visio, I was able to move arrows and edit texts but I am not able to move tasks, events, or gateways and I'm not able to change task type from none to send/receive.

Every time I try to change task type, add new tasks etc, I get a pop-up message: "An unspecified error occurred".

Has anyone experienced this? I'm not sure if I should start from scratch and draw it up again or not because I'm handing it over to coworkers that do not have as much Visio experience.

Please advise

I would be surprised if you could convert any other app into a Visio diagram and have it work the same way.

I suspect you would need to either start again in Visio or get your co-workers to use Bisagi instead.

If your co-workers don't already know how to use Visio, you might be better staying in Bizagi. It looks like it is easy enough to learn and the price of Free is cheap enough.

Visio has a broader range of capability but there is a complexity that make it a tricky tool to fully control.

@guessed I think that's what I'll do for these diagrams at least but the workplace encourages using Visio as they've paid for licensing.
