    • 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.

      • Autosave on the windows desktop App

        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.

          • 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.

              • Invision integration for Prototyping

                Invision is a powerfull tool for Prototyping & Collaboration.
                Not only final Design but also wireframes can be prototyped in Invision.
                Usually we make all the wireframes in draw.io and export them as png to integrate it then in invision. More powerfull would be a direct integration, like Sketch -> Invision has it. Would mean all changes in draw.io would appear directly in invision.

                • 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.

                  • Svg group ids without a plugin

                    Would be awesome if exported SVG had ids assigned to them based on labels or text.
                    Right now it is only possible to export additional data using data plugin. But standalone apps don't seem to have plugins available.

                    • Allow editing of draw.io diagrams in Confluence attachments

                      For draw.io diagrams, it is not possible to click an "edit" button in the overview of the attachments in Confluence. All I can do is show the characteristics of the diagram and the possiblity to delete them.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                              Bootstrap mockup stencils is very useful. It would be awesome to have a feature to generate HTML code from Bootstrap diagram in draw.io

                              • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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 :/

                                        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
                                          5326591111,John Doe,5426592422,30
                                          5426592222,John Doe1,5326591111,20
                                          5426592422,John Doe2,5326591111,20
