Hi Paul, thanks for posting in the community! The traditional Visio import tool in Lucidchart makes an effort to maintain both style and functionality of your original Visio diagram. The "Convert to Lucidchart Shapes" option, on the other hand, will convert your Visio shapes to Lucidchart ones. While this may result in your imported diagram not looking visually identical to your original Visio diagram and may require additional style and formatting within Lucidchart, a greater emphasis is placed on shape functionality, which allows your shapes to remain more editable and functional than they would with the traditional import. 

 

For more information on our Visio import tool, please take a look at this Import Files from Visio, Gliffy, Draw.io, and OmniGraffle article, and let me know if you have additional questions below.

This was helpful.  I tried both import options and they look identical so I'm going with the converted shapes.

I recommend adding this level of detail to the link you provided.

Thanks.
