  1. 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 :)

    • 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.

      • MindMaps

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

          • Download Google Drive Folder With Converting Files To PDF

            Could you impmenent the google drive "download folder, convert to pdf" within draw.io? It's a real pain to open each and every file just to create the pdf whlie you can just download the rest of the google docs in one go.

            • Searchable PDF Output

              PDF vector output quality is fantastic, the ability to scale the diagrams to any print size is invaluable, however the PDF seems to lack any kind of text searching layer meaning object can not be easily identified without first OCR'ing the output file. Please can I request native text searching functionality on PDF export.

              • Add Microsoft Active Directory Elements

                I just started using draw.io and I just love it. There are out of the box many tools that I use daily with other diagram softwares for my work duties - I'd love to see the Active Directory stencils Microsoft provided (http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=11616) in the list of available icons. I saw that you added the Cisco series, and guessed you could just add them as well - it would be a major reason to switch to draw.io from my current software.

                • REQUEST SUPPORT FOR DOMAIN-DRIVEN DESIGN (#DDDesign)

                  Inspired by 'Implementing Domain-Driven Design' by Vaughn Vernon, I propose some draw.io additions to facilitate the drawing of some of the new features addressed by Domain Driven Design (DDD) as illustrated in the accompanying file attachment (drawings adapted from the book).

                  Central to DDD diagrams are a variety of closed free-hand stencil shapes (blobs). These can be drawn with the existing curved line (Curve) tool but requires the addition of the ability to join the beginning and end of a line to create a closed loop (these are easily drawn as closed loops in MS PowerPoint 2003 but understandably, are…

                  • Basic Processors In Electrical

                    Anyway, would it be possible to get some basic CPU / MCU drawings?

                    For example, having a drawing of a 6502 with pin-outs, or some microcontrollers like the AVR family would be awesome.

                    • Keep The 'Custom' 'Page Setup' Dimensions Populated Between Reopening A File.

                      We use draw.io files as working documents of action-oriented causal maps which are ever changing as our understanding, goals and foci change. They can get very large and messy. Working with their structure is part of gaining a systemic understanding of what they represent.

                      The above means that we prefer the 'custom' 'page setup'. Are there maximum dimensions? Or a setting where the dimensions can be set to expand as the content expands?

                      The 'feature request' is that, while the custom dimensions are stored when reopening a draw.io file, the 'custom' field in 'page setup' reverts to its standard. This…

                      • 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..'…
