You can share your Visio diagrams in PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 by creating slide snippets of your diagrams and then exporting them to PowerPoint. It's never been easier to get your diagrams into PowerPoint.

Visio to PowerPoint

The ability to create slide snippets and export them to PowerPoint is only available with Visio Plan 2. If you're not sure what version of Visio you're using, click File > Account > About Visio. The top-left corner of the dialog box tells you which version of Visio_generic you have:

The About Visio dialog box specifies which version of Visio you are using.

Note: In order to use this feature, you must have a Microsoft 365 subscription. If you are a Microsoft 365 subscriber, make sure you have the latest version of Office. If you are an IT professional managing the Microsoft 365 update process, check out the channel releases page to learn which updates are provided in each channel.

Create and export slide snippets to PowerPoint

  1. With your Visio diagram open, click View > Slide Snippets Pane. The Slide Snippets pane appears on the right side of your design window.

  2. Click Add in the Slide Snippets pane and a snipping frame appears over your diagram.

    • Move the snipping frame over the portion of the diagram you want to show on a slide.

    • If necessary, drag the corners of the snipping frame until you have the size you want.

  3. Enter a title for your slide in the text box beneath the slide preview.

  4. To add another slide snippet, click Add again and then position and size the new snipping frame over the intended area of your diagram. If you need to delete a slide, select it in the Slide Snippets pane and then press Delete.

If you overlap the snipping frame between different slides and then export to PowerPoint, the images use the morphing slide transition in PowerPoint. If you don't have the latest subscription version of PowerPoint or overlap slide snippets, the slides use the normal default slide transition.
