    Firstly, I'll expand on your question, for PowerDesigner users who aren't familiar with ER/Studio's quaint terminology - in ER/Studio a 'Diagram' is a file containing a single LDM, and zero, one or many PDMs. The file extension is "dm1". ER/Studio is now sold by Idera, who bought Embarcadero in 2016 or thereabouts.

    PowerDesigner can't import directly from dm1 files, only from Erwin XML files. However, you can export a model from ER/Studio to PowerDesigner, if you've paid for the metadata import/export bridges. The bridges are actually written by Meta Integration - which version of PowerDesigner you can export to depends on your version of ER/Studio.

    Please check if you can do the export - right-click the model in the ER/Studio Explorer, and select "Export Model Metadata". If that's not available, please get back to us.
