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. Add a search box in embed version

    In diagrams and org charts with lot of names and texts would help the users to search single words and highlights the results.

      • Allow properties to be used as variables in the shape designer

        so if I had a property against a process like duration I could display it in the object. This way I could have many properties like duration / role / system and display them in a standard format via a custom shape.

        • Add Confluence home icon on the tool bar

          I would like to have the Conflunce home icon and the hamburger button available while in draw.io. While working, I often need to open up some reference documentation. Today, I have to open a new tab, go back into Confluence, and then find my page. I would rather be able to open new Confluence tabs while in draw.io.

            • Provide a link to source Confluence page

              When in Draw.io, I often want to review the existing Confluence page. I would like a link to open a new tab to that current page. This could be place along the existing menu bar.

              Currently, I have to either:
              1) Save and exit my diagram. Open the new tab. Go back in to continue editing my diagram.
              2) Open a new tab. Go to Confluence. Go to my recent page.

                • Comic style for rounded shapes

                  Currently, only boxes and straight lines support the "comic" look.
                  While Circles, Ellipses and curved lines do not.

                  It would be a nice addition to be able to apply a consistent look and feel to all elements of your diagram when using the comic style.

                  • View icons by set

                    I would like the ability to view the entire set from which a single icon came from. It would allow me to create more consistent look & feel on my diagrams. I know I can edit the icon, locate its external source, and navigate to the set. However, this is a bit tedious.

                    • Consider inner padding (spacing) for autosize

                      draw.io now comes with the autosize feature available under the Arrange menu or the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-Y

                      Unfortunately, it resizes each element too tight, and non-rectangle elements will usually get their labels overlapping the shape outlines.

                      I hope at least the autosize can consider the padding option which can is specified under the Text attribute "Spacing".

                            • Shortcut for menu (bar)

                              <Shortcut for Main Menu>
                              There are many functionalities not to have shortcut mapping in draw.io. Therefore I suggest general shortcut for accessing menu.

                              It would be better to support shortcut for main menu, such as starting from ALT key, as it has been used as accessing main menu key in general SW program.

                              for example, "toolitip", it is not mapped to specific shortcut. how about accessing like this. ALT+ E(dit menu) > T(ooltip).

                                  • Auto-Position endpoint labels

                                    I frequently use the UML\Association1 line to represent network connections, as both endpoints are labelled (I use it to label port numbers).

                                    I regularly have to reposition the text labels so they don't overlap the object. Could it be such that when an Association1 is connected to the left-side of an object, the text is by-default positioned left? And when an Association1 is connected to the bottom of an object, it's positioned bottom? Etc.

                                      • Enable top down analysis of Subprocess Shapes by adding "create model and link"

                                        Hi,

                                        To enable top down analysis it would be good if there was an option on a BPMN "subprocess" shape, via right clicking, which said something similar to "Create subprocess model and link" which would create a seperate diagram and a link to this diagram on the Subprocess shape. The new model could be on a seperate page or seperate file whichever is the easiest, probably "page".

                                        Thanks.

                                        • Distribute spacing instead of position

                                          draw.io has a "Distribute" command available under Arrange menu when multiple elements are selected.

                                          Unfortunately, it can only evenly distribute the position of elements, which means elements with different sizes may have different spacing between them. It looks somewhat awkward.

                                          I hope there can be another option where instead of position, the spacing are evenly distributed.
