      • Timetube creation functionality - ideally with JIRA milestone integration

        We need to create time tubes easily, similar to Visio functionality. It would be great to leverage existing milestones in a JIRA macro

        • Export to Bizagi

          In my company whe have people who use bizagi (Windows) and others who use Draw.io (linux).

          The bad part about this, we can't share our driagams and we want to. It would be awesome if we could export draw.io diagrams to be shared with the people who use bizagi

          • Add hydraulic symbols according to ISO 1219 to your library

            The set of symbols for hydraulic diagrams is rather basic and lacks many symbols (especially for valves) which are defined in ISO 1219 whereas you have a great library for electrical diagrams.
            It was great if you could add those so that processes in a machine can be described in a more detailed way than it is possible with the current library of fluidic devices.

            • Support Templates for C4 Diagrams

              We find these diagrams much more helpful than UML however, sometimes we would rather not code them into being.

                • Add another option to show/hide different layers in 'lightbox' view mode.

                  I'm thinking of adding a view option like how Fireworks did it. For example, a user can directly click a shape that triggers the viewer to hide all layers except layers 1, 2 and 3. However, another shape once clicked hides all layers except layers 4, 5 and 6, etc.

                  I suppose the most logical approach is to first hide all layers except the layers specified by the user.

                  Two (2) options I can think of will be made possible if this feature is implemented. One, the user can make a page interactive by clicking on a shape as it…

                  • Dockable layer window

                    Make the layer window dockable to the format panel.

                      • Cache repeated images in a diagram

                        When raster of SVG images are added to a diagram (deep copy using base64) and duplicated, ensure there is only one copy of the data, the rest reference that one copy of the data.

                        • Possibility of choosing folder to save at Google Drive

                          Hello!
                          I really like your application but I found one issue (maybe I just did not found this feature).
                          Diagram saving possible only to root of Google Drive.
                          Add, please, possibility of choosing folder to save. It will increase usability of your app.

                            • 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.

                                It would be nice to be able to display specific layers above a master diagram, by calling them from a querystring

                                • Add the JIRA issue macro to text on symbols. This will allow one to reference JIRA issues directly from created symbols

                                  In some case JIRA is used to track assets and in draw.io one can represent the assets as a diagram i.e. network diagram. It would be useful to reference assets (JIRA issue) to the symbol on the draw.io symbol i.e. MS CRM BIT-22 INVEST

                                    For example, the scratchpad and recent files list could be stored centrally per Google account

                                      • Arrange layout for dimensional model

                                        Would be great to have auto-layout for ER dimensional model (star-schema, snowflake-schema).
                                        This is often used in DWH design and it takes a time to distribute objects evenly around central Fact, to make diagram looking nice.

                                        • add stencils for Mikrotick & Unifi equipment

                                          I would like support for stencils for Mikrotick Router boards as well as Unifi equipment added since its still difficult to produce quality network diagrams using PNGs and lines.
