  1. 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.

    • Better curve line drawing tool

      Right now, it is only possible to add curved point, but not possible to adjust the curvature freely. A better choice is to add a handle around the curved point like Adobe Illustrator.

      • search shapes from custom libraries

        It would be lovely if the "search shapes" function would also search in custom libraries that users made (confluence server user).

        We've created a few custom libraries, we named each shape in those libraries and we want users to quickly find shapes in our custom libraries by search instead of scrolling in the libraries.

        • Nudge the selected objects with the arrow keys.

          I'd like to be able to do this as exact placement with the mouse can sometimes be very frustrating!

          • Capital ß

            The capital ß (U+1E9E ẞ LATIN CAPITAL LETTER SHARP S) is shown on screen correctly but if I export my plan as a PDF it's completely missing! PNG and JPG export works fine though.

            • Add a lite picture capture function

              I can draw very nice and beautiful diagram with draw.io and sometimes I want to share part of the diagram. If there were a little tool to capture that, that will be very convenient.

              • Dynamic Flowchart Viewer

                Can we have dynamic flowchart viewer, which will have features as mentioned in the example below.

                User can click on "Start" shape (assuming it is first shape in the flowchart), and then this dynamic viewer tool will highlight the next path (like road navigation in google map). If there is any decision box in the path, then let this dynamic viewer tool stop there and wait for user to make a choice of "Yes" or "No" (as the case may be) and then after selection of desired option highlight next path.

                Also let user know, till which shape he has…

                  • SVG

                    I would like to be able to 'Import' an SVG as a diagram and have all of the component shapes be separate editable shapes inside draw.io. I have a number of OmniGraffle diagrams that I am trying to convert to draw.io diagrams. I can export SVG and import single un-editable svg 'shapes' but I would love it if there was a way to access the internal shapes.

                    • Export the *.eps format.

                      Hey, guys, It would be great for many researchers if we can export our files as *.eps format when exporting from draw.io. Most of the latex documents needed the use of *.eps files which is not a feature of draw.io as of now. So, please make eps file format available at your earliest possible time.

                      • MySQL database as storage for saving diagrams

                        I think it would be great if you could use a database to store the chart, i.e. to all the created diagrams would not properly save files or in the browser, and a specific database (a corporate intranet it would be very convenient)

                        • Authorize users for the ability to share authorship

                          It would be great if in terms of intranet solutions had the opportunity of authorization of users on the resource (even more ideal would be if LDAP authorization), so it would be possible to share your graph and others, as well as to share the access to other authorized users for either viewing or editing

                            • Add "open with..." support on desktop app

                              File extensions associated with Draw.io desktop app should automatically load up the double-clicked file to increase workflow and remove the need to export diagrams as images.

                              Currently it does start the app, but doesn't load the file contents. (Tested with own-defined ".dio" extension)

                                • Confluence macros inside of draw.io diagrams

                                  It would be wonderful to be able to insert confluence macros inside of draw.io diagrams (e.g. as collapsible container) - e.g. subprocess modeling as seperate diagrams.

                                        When using the web interface, it automatically saves my progress. In the Windows Desktop App, I have to manually save. I prefer to have my progress automatically saved to Google Drive

                                        • Increase click area of checkbox in export popin

                                          Checkboxes in export popin are ridiculously hard to click on. We are obliged to click just on the checkbox. Please make the whole label + checkbox clickable.
