Visio .vsdx File Import Issues

We're trying to use LibreOffice Draw to open a VSDX file (created in Visio 2013) sent to us by a third party.

LibreOffice Draw opens the file fine, but when the fine is saved out as an .odg or .fodg, Draw cannot then re-open it, instead crashing with the following error:

image description

Opening the document in Notepad++ and navigating to the XML in question (the tags have been collapsed onto one row), the code is <style:graphic-properties ="evenodd" draw:stroke="none" draw:fill="solid" draw:fill-color="#5b9bd5" draw:shadow="hidden"/>.

If this is bad, why is LibreOffice able to open the original Visio file and is then able to save it out as a native document, but is then unable to open the file it has itself created?

I've also tried copying the entire document to a new Draw document, but the same issue occurs in the new document.

I have the same issue but I haven't been able to find an answer yet. Awfully somebody could provide another way to bypass this issue in the meanwhile it gets fixed!

It will never get fixed unless a user suffering from the bug takes steps and effort to create a bug report with reproducer (test document).
