We have created a foundational self-directed training course for draw.io. This course expands upon the concise Getting Started with draw.io for Confluence, giving you a deeper understanding of diagramming and helping you work with draw.io more effectively and efficiently.
Any shape in draw.io can be turned into a container – a shape containing several other shapes. Containers are useful for indicating groups of steps or sub-processes in a flow chart, collections of data, or groups within a hierarchy.
Sometimes you don’t want to connect to any particular connection point, but to the edge of a shape. And perhaps you want one end of a connector to move and the other to stay in one position. There are two types of connections, indicated with blue and green frames in draw.io.
Diagrams are too often hidden away on individual computers or on shared drives, and not included in the revision control process. draw.io for Confluence is different – because it is completely integrated with Confluence’s version history function, changes to diagrams are tracked automatically, and you can compare and restore old versions of diagrams with ease.
Are you tired of seeing low-resolution draw.io diagrams when you print from Google Docs? This is no longer a problem!
Support for high resolution images has been added to the Google Docs Add-on, which allows you to embed draw.io diagrams directly in your documents.
In the last few weeks, the Visio import feature of draw.io has been intensively expanded, and a number of customer requests for this feature have been added to the development queue. You can see all the new features in the most recent release, available now.
