  1. Need keyboard shortcut for 'edit tooltip'

    I use a lot of tooltip along with labels. Currently being an ux designer, adding a tooltip for around 50 screens is a Herculean task. Please provide this simple feature. a keyboard shortcut to "edit tooltip" will reduce upto 100 clicks in my case.

    • export SVG without embedded HTML

      Mediawiki won't allow upload of SVG's created by Draw.io because they contain HTML (needed for word-wrap functionality?), and allowing anyone to embed arbitrary HTML into a page would be Bad.

      If there's another way to achieve word-wrap (how do other SVG editors do it?), it would be nice to have this as a checkbox in the export-as-SVG dialog.

      • Generate SVG from plantuml plugin for confluence cloud

        Currently in confluence cloud we use the plantuml plugin to render an image from plantuml markup. Because urls/links are not possible I would like SVG rendering because that supports links. In confluence the svg file would simply be stored and the (modern) browser will render it including the links.

        • Make it easier to customise size of top menu and sidebars

          Hello,

          Thank you for draw.io. It's a fantastic tool!

          We are using redmine_drawio and would like to make the embedding of draw.io within our application more seamless.

          Presently, when we open an embedded image the user gets the default theme and this gives the impression that the user has left our application.

          We can adjust the existing CSS to tweak the current theme to give it the right colors and styles but we do not seem to be able to adjust the top menu or sidebar sizes without editing the JavaScript itself (in several places).

          It would be great to…

          • Create New from template in same window

            We are using draw.io with Redmine using the redmine_drawio plugin.

            When you embed a diagram using the Redmine plugin you get a default image when first editing. When editing the first time there does not seem to be a way to recreate the current drawing using one of the existing templates.

            If we could create a new drawing in the same session/instance using the templates or in some other way load a template diagram then it would make creating new diagrams using an embedded template draw.io diagram much easier.

            So, I guess I am suggesting a 'New in current session..'…

            • 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.

              • 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

                • 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)

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

                      • 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.

                            • More simple way to collaborate with others

                              It is insane how hard it is to collaborate with others for draw.io diagrams. Even setting the link through Google drive to be open for anyone with the link to edit, half the time it simply doesn't work. I can't understand at all how I can create something on your site, but I can't possibly share it with others in any simple way. Too many options, too complicated. You need a way to just network whatever it is you're working on with others. One link, just shared, and accessible to others. No complex security or other bells and whistles.

                                • 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…

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
