draw.io Training – Exercise 10: Export and import

If you are using a platform or creating a document that can't embed a draw.io diagram, you'll want to export it as an image. Importing is just as important, especially if you want to move your diagrams from another diagramming tool into draw.io to take advantage of its rich features.

draw.io Training – Exercise 8: Add links and tooltips

You can add links so that when a viewer clicks on a shape or a line of text in your diagram, they can be taken directly to another page or diagram. And you can add tooltips, so when a viewer hovers their mouse over a section of the diagram, they will be shown additional information in a tooltip.

draw.io Training – Exercise 7: Create a diagram with layers and images

Building your diagram by using layers allows you a lot more flexibility - you can switch between different views of your diagram, group related elements and protect them from being modified when you work in a different layer. In this exercise, you'll create a diagram in a top layer, following an image 'template' that you paste into the background layer.
