MagicDraw 19.0 LTR SP3 Documentation

Since version 17.0.1, MagicDraw supports UML 2.x notation only. MagicDraw 17.0 is the last version that supports the UML 1.x notation. To open a project based on UML 1.x, such as a project created with MagicDraw 9.x or earlier versions, you must convert your project to a MagicDraw 17.0 project.

To make the conversion process easier, you can use a free standalone MagicDraw Project Converter. This converter is specifically designed to convert MagicDraw 9.x or earlier version projects to MagicDraw 17.0 projects.

To start the MagicDraw Project Converter

  1. Download MagicDraw Project Converter at or please open the No Cost Plugin page at and select the converter from the plugins list.
  2. Extract the file.
  3. Go to the bin directory and run converter.exe to start MagicDraw Project Converter.

To convert a project

  1. Open MagicDraw Project Converter.
  2. In the MagicDraw 9.x project(s) box, select the project you want to convert.
  3. In the Output location box, specify the location wherein the converted project will be saved.
  4. Click Convert.

If your project contains modules, you must save them as separate projects at first. Start to save from modules that do not have two-way interconnections.
