Cannot view visio files in confluence


users of confluence 5.10 server.

we use visio for most of our technical documents and I understand that Confluence doesn't have the ability to view these files.

is there a workaround for this ( without a plug-in?)

I looked at the lucid chart, idrawings and bob swift plug-ins.


any input on the support and best plug-in is much appreciated.


thanks !

No plugin-free workaround as yet, but we have an issue open for it Ability to embed visio files in Confluence.

There are several suggestions on this thread: Viewing Visio in Confluence?
