I recently had the chance to do a short apprenticeship (Praktikum) at //SEIBERT/MEDIA. It was fantastic, filled with lots of great food, fantastic co-workers, and useful experiences. One of those experiences was to try out draw.io in Confluence for the first time and compare it with some of the other tools.
If you are using Confluence, I'm sure you have extremely long pages, somewhere within your intranet. Anchors can make a long page more readable. You don't want to have to scroll through the whole page to get an overview from the many headings. Use draw.io to spice up a long Confluence page and capture the attention of your users.
One of the most common questions we get is "Why should we switch from Gliffy to draw.io?" There are many reasons why, and one of the most important (other than draw.io's unbeatable price), is that you'll save a heap of time every time you work with a diagram!
As with most drawing tools, you can export to a wide range of formats with draw.io. But which format should you use?
It seems like only yesterday that the Atlassian Summit in San Jose was on, where we got to meet many Atlassians, partners and customers and had a great time. We are now looking forward to a packed November schedule. If you are coming to any of the following events, you will be able to meet people from the draw.io team in person!
There are many times when you simply want to update a diagram but don't want to change any of the text on a page within Confluence. That's easy to do with draw.io: Simply hover over the diagram while you are looking at the page in view mode to display the diagram's toolbar, and click the edit button.
We had an incredible time at Summit 2017. It was great to meet and talk with so many new people, and catch up with everyone we had met before. You gave us a mountain of new ideas and inspiration!
At Summit Europe 2017, Leonardo was the happy winner of the draw.io competition to win a brand new MacBook, and his illustration of his daily routine was a masterpiece! We asked Leonardo what he thought of draw.io, and this is what he had to say.
draw.io now supports line jumps, also known as edge jumps or bridges. These are used to show that lines cross each other, but do not connect.
