  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow viewing a diagram from another page in Confluence Cloud

    User inserts a diagram viewer that links to an existing diagram. It wouldn't be possible to directly edit the diagram from page edit mode.

      • Allow linking of individual Draw.IO tabs/sheets from other documents like Docs/Sheets etc.

        It is impossible to copy the link used to link to internal Draw.IO tabs/sheets so that the link can be used in Google Docs or Sheets.

        • Restrict permissions on Google Docs addon

          See discussion at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/drawio/L-nhB911iTU

          The docs addon needs to be merged into the same app ID as the standard draw.io ID.

          • Give users the option to restrict the edit-option for custom libraries to multiple people or groups

            We are a team of UI-Experts and like to create our own library in Draw.io for JIRA. As we all like to add and edit shapes in our team-library, but restrict it to be edited from any other user, we like to have the option to restrict the library for multiple users or groups.

            • Version history for custom libraries

              We have a custom-library which changes over time. But sometimes we like to undo the last change. At this moment we do not have the option. If we discuss this to the end, we like to have a version history of all changes in our custom library.

              • Provide a way to create a link to an anchor

                I can add a link in the draw.io diagram. However, the link dialog is not offering me the "advanced" option, which - on Confluence pages - serves to create a link to an anchor.
                I'd like to create a link to an anchor on a Confluence page.

                • Static Link To Images

                  As a document writer I would like to link to SVG, PNG, ... in other documents I write (online). Therefor, a static link would be much appreciated.

                  Currently, I have to do the following things:
                  1. Create the draw.io image
                  2. export the image to svg
                  3. upload SVG to a webservice
                  4. link to the SVG on this webservice

                  And, even worse: if I need to change the draw.io image, I need to redo all off the above steps again :/

                  • Background map linked to diagram

                    So something like Google maps or OpenStreetMap could be rendered in the background of things like telecomms topologies. They would need to pan and zoom proportionally with the diagram.

                      • Timetube creation functionality - ideally with JIRA milestone integration

                        We need to create time tubes easily, similar to Visio functionality. It would be great to leverage existing milestones in a JIRA macro

                          • Export tikz and dot

                            It'd be really nice to have additional export options such as TikZ and DOT to support workflows requiring those formats.

                              • Adding name to UML package at correct position

                                Adding a text to a uml package element places it at the center or next to the object. Spacing needs to be redone everytime I resize the package element.
                                I would expect it to appear at a position like this: http://jdbaker.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/pkg2.jpg

                                Doing this by creating a new text field is realy frustrating. As soon as Im using a background color for the text element, I need to place it below the package element. Everytime I want to move, scale or rename the package I have to switch layers of those objects, to mark or edit the correct one.

                                  As a user of Draw.io Desktop and Web App, I would like an option similar to MS Office where I can see recently created/edited diagrams online and stored on the desktop.

                                  In MS Office I have a section under file that shows a list of documents I have recently created and/or edited.

                                    • Allow custom data on connections when importing CSVs

                                      When importing CSV files, it would be awesome to specify custom properties so that one can use them on labels via placeholders.

                                      Suggested syntax:

                                      # connect: {"from": "called", "to": "number", "label": "Called %count% times", \
                                      # "data": {"count": "count"}, \
                                      # "style": "curved=1;endArrow=blockThin;endFill=1;fontSize=11;"}

                                      number,name,called,count

                                        Hello!
                                        I really like your application but I found one issue (maybe I just did not found this feature).
                                        Diagram saving possible only to root of Google Drive.
                                        Add, please, possibility of choosing folder to save. It will increase usability of your app.

                                        • Dockable layer window

                                          Make the layer window dockable to the format panel.
