    • Support for a single-button mouse / stylus

      I use draw.io, projected onto a large whiteboard (> 40 feet), for lectures. I need to use, affectively, a single-button mouse during the lecture.

      Having a contextual menu appear on a double click (as opposed to a right-click) would allow me to delete objects, etc. [As opposed to walking to the other side of the board.]

      Also having the ability to have a keyboard would be ideal to label simple diagrams.

          • Enable one to link BPMN SubProcess to "Pages" in addition to Google+ etc.

            Hi,

            I want to do a top down analysis of process and use of SubProcess shapes is the way to do this. Unfortunately this is not possible within Draw.IO at present. The best one can do is create the child model first and then add a link to it on the parent model.

            It would make life easier if one could add a link to a "Page" which would be the addition of a "Page" button alongside "Google+" etc on "Edit Link". LucidChart already offers this.

            • Create a popup menu or a link to a diagram page

              It would be great to be able to create a popup menu (or the ability to hide and unhide some elements) based on a geometry link.

              On a practical example, this means the next:

              [A]--[B]--[C]

              Three boxes, you click on, for example, B

              [A]--[B]--[C]
              |
              -----------------
              | Any Shape |
              | Or Content |
              -----------------

              If this happened to be too difficult to made, what about taking the Lucidchart's approach?
              You can open pages directly by clicking on some objects, getting an interactive chart.

                • Ability to save to Sharepoint and Onedrive for Business so others can access

                  Need to have the ability for other people in our company to access Draw.io files from a Sharepoint file library or OneDrive for Business. Also if I wanted to switch personal Onedrive accounts I don't see an option to kill my current Onedrive login so I could save to another Onedrive account. I have a personal OneDrive Account and a business Onedrive and Sharepoint and so far can't do anything with the latter two. I even tried using a link generated from Sharepoint library and that didn't work.

                  • Edge weight

                    It would be very handy to have weight for the edges to affect auto layout.

                    In my particular case, I would like to have strong connections between grouped objects so that they layout together instead of spreading apart.

                    • Force viewer to display specified page

                      Make it possible to configure the marco to display just a single drawing tab on a different page.

                      The scenario is if I keep all of my detailed infrastructure drawings within the one file on separate tabs / sheets I will like to be able to display the relevant sheet on a confluence page the is describing the service that infrastructure supports.

                        • Add padding support when you group elements together

                          It Vould be nice to add padding when you group elements together, because frequently I could add some outline to the group but now when I do that, the outline is on the existing elements margin.

                                • add a graphical shape editor. Defining complex custom shapes on the fly is a really useful feature.

                                  Even simple graphical editor that allows user to draw lines and add connection points to define a new shape. This would be a lot faster for making custom, complex shapes than manually editing the markup for a new shape.
