If you need to open a model of a different format or created with another UML tool, you have to import it to MagicDraw instead of simply opening it. MagicDraw allows importing projects from the following file formats:

  • Eclipse UML2 (v1.x, v2.x, v3.x, v4.x, v5.x) XMI file. Select File > Import From > Eclipse UML2 (v1.x, v2.x, v3.x, v4.x, or v5.x) for this.
  • Most of the model data from an Enterprise Architect 7.1, 7.5 or 8.0 file.


    Enterprise Architect does not export 100% standard UML 2.1 XMI, and this causes some data loss during the import.

  • UML diagrams from Microsoft Visio using XMI files.


    Microsoft Visio 2007 and earlier requires extra add-ons for exporting UML model to XMI files.
