Visual Paradigm and Telelogic Doors

We are using Telelogic Doors for requirements engineering and
now looking for a simple way to import VP diagrams into doors.

Unfortunately it seems to be incompatible with VP.

Is it planned to provide export in .bmp format or are you aware of any other simple way to integrate diagrams modelled with visual paradigm into doors.

Thank you for your effort,


Hi Gervin,

Thank you for your post.

I will forward your suggestion of exporting diagrams as .bmp format to our development team.

In the meantime, could you please suggest what kinds of file does Telelogic Doors accept besides bmp? We support exporting as SVG, PNG, EMF, JPG and XMI. Is any of them useful to you?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Hello Jick,

we performed further investigations.

Unfortunately only the .bmp format is well enough supported by Doors.

With OLE it is possible to view a diagram within Doors until you try to access it via double click.
After this action only an icon remains visible.

A colleage of mine is also in contact with your support team. So we can close this thread.

Thank you and best regards,
