I wish to create a Re-usable workflow from List workflow using share point 2010.When i tried the some of the articles steps using import and export visio but final option 'radio-button' to select 'list' or 'reusable' workflow is not shown in final pop up.So it failed.

1.Then I tried it using share point designer 2013.It throws error."Microsoft server different from share Point Designer".Is it possible to open 2010 created server in share point designer 2013.

2.when i tried to edit the workflow it shows share point cannot display this item.I deleted the cache info's folders but it shows the same error.

3.Is it possible to convert a 'List Workflow' to 'Reusable Workflow' in Share Point Designer 2010?

How to resolve these issues.I'm new to share point.please help me on this.

Thanks in advance.

Why dont you use a shareoint designer 2013. I'm not sure but it can be a bug in SharePoint Designer 2010.

This link can help after installing 2013 Designer. https://expertsin.cloud/2017/05/31/sharepoint-designer-workflows-converting-list-workflows-to-reusable-workflows/
