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.
You are used to using diagramming software on your desktop. But sometimes you want to work on a diagram when not at your computer. Put away your keyboard and mouse - draw.io works just as well on a tablet.
Not everyone is connected to the internet at all times. There will be times when you will want to keep working on diagrams, even when offline. No problems! draw.io works offline in all of the popular browsers.

Draw.io has added support for publishing diagrams as standalone webpages and to embed them using in an existing webpage. This makes it easy to share diagrams with friends and with colleagues if you are not using draw.io within Confluence.
If you draw additional lines between shapes in a diagram, they won't move with your shapes when you move them around the drawing area. By using actual connectors (not lines), your diagram becomes much more flexible and easy to work with. There are four different ways you can create connectors between shapes and quickly extend your diagrams in draw.io.
