Feature Requests

draw.io feature requests have moved to https://trello.com/drawio1.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • 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".
(thinking…)

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

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

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

  1. Comments Just Like Google Docs

    Would be great to insert comments just the same way Google Docs allow us to do.
    This way the collaboration level can go up considerably.

    • Databases integration

      Hi guys,
      It would be great to have integration with Oracle and MS SQL Server databases to be able to build schema diagrams automatically based on extracted information. I don't know if you have draw.io sources available anywhere so that anyone could help building that.

      • Import/Export The *.Graphml Format

        i would like very much to be able import/export the GRAPHML files.
        particularly i am interested in loading my collection of drawings created in yEd.

        as the draw.io lack off-line functionality - i would like to use the export to *.graphml as well.
        it is hard to imagine but there are still people not on-line 24x7 :)

          • Create UML class diagrams based on Source code (like PlantUML)

            PlantUML addon for confluence has a feature to create UML class diagrams based on source code.

            • MindMaps

              It will be great if the tool allowed us to draw mind maps!

              • Measurements

                Draw.io has everything, except measurements and grid-sizes. Now i cannot abuse this application for actual floorplanning, designing physical things and everything that requires measuring. I would like to, since all the other features are there and this tool actually works.

                • 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.

                  • Import Graphviz diagrams

                    It would be wonderful that draw.io imports ".dot" (graphviz) diagrams.

                    The transition from older tools to draw.io could be better with this functions.

                    • 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.

                      • Ability to label connection points

                        Add ability to label connection points (diamonds? crosses?) on shapes. Currently i must add a tiny box inside the shape, or a text object, in order to hold a label for that connection point. Connection point points should have native labels.

                        Examples: 'Input', 'Output', '+', '-', 'Control', 'Trigger', etc. My application is electronics, but would be useful for other areas.

                        • add anchors

                          The ability to add links in the drawing which send you to other parts of the drawing, much like anchors in HTML. Rather than a series of, sometimes, messy lines- the user (especially when presenting) could click a link that moves the view to the resulting location.

                          • Conflgure Confluence viewer to display specific page in linked diagram

                            Make it possible to configure the marco to display just a single drawing page for a linked diagram.

                            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.

                                    • Save to Box.com

                                      How much work would it take to enable saving to Box?

                                      Box.com is often used by enterprises as they have a robust SSO mechanism, encryption using EKM and offsite HSM, and enterprise charging models. APIs are available and documented.

                                      • Arrange objects: add "Forward" and "Backward" buttons to reorder

                                        When working with a lot of different objects that are on top of each other, it would be great to reorder the object with "Forward" and "Backward" buttons instead of only "To Front" and "To Back".

                                        Recent PowerPoint version has even a 3D vision of the different objects layers that makes it really intuitive (see the link below)

                                        • SVG export without foreign objects

                                          Currently, when exporting diagrams as an SVG file, all text becomes [Not supported by viewer] when opening the file in something other than a web browser (e.g. GPicView, Inkscape, GIMP).
