Hari, I imported some WMF clip-art into Frame under Solaris. Frame
doesn't handle WMFs directly under UNIX, but has a built-in filter
called wmf2fmvect to convert them to FrameVector format. FrameVector
images work fine on all platforms. Example:

wmf2fmvect hari.wmf hari.fmv

You don't have to do it from the command line -- if you select a
.wmf file in File > Import > File, Frame will convert it on the fly.

So, I suggest you try saving your Visio images as WMF, then copy them
to your Solaris machine and convert them with wmf2fmvect.

If you would like to do complex drawings under Solaris, there is a
product called Visual Thought that looks really good. Unfortunately
it's also really expensive. I have a demo CD but I'm afraid to have
a play in case I really like it. I don't have the budget for it,
and that would make me sad. . .
