What is a VSS file?

A .VSS file is a Microsoft Visio Stencil file.

Microsoft Visio Stencil files, also known as ".VSS" files, are a file format used for storing pre-drawn shapes and symbols used in creating diagrams and flowcharts. These files are commonly used in business and technical fields for creating process flows, network diagrams, floor plans, and other visual representations of complex information.

The ".VSS" format is a proprietary format developed by Microsoft and is exclusively used by Microsoft Visio, a diagramming and vector graphics application. It stores information such as the location, shape, and properties of each object in the stencil, allowing for accurate and consistent use of the shapes in different diagrams.

One of the key benefits of the ".VSS" format is the availability of a wide range of stencils for different fields, including IT, Engineering, Business process and many more. This allows users to select and use appropriate shapes to create professional and accurate diagrams.
