There seems to be quite a lot happening here at draw.io! We want to make sure that we keep providing you with the most updated information on our tool.  That way, you can continue to seamlessly create the diagrams you need.  To that end, we’ve been adding new videos over at draw.io on YouTube with more to come in the next few weeks.  Here’s what we’ve been busy doing…

Double-click to add a shape in draw.io for Confluence

We recently also rolled out a new feature that allows you to quickly add shapes that are available in the General shape library just by double-clicking on your canvas.  Double-clicking brings up a little menu with the shapes so you can easily just select one without having to go over to the library. Easy peasy!

Compact little bites

The many draw.io features and functions typically need just a quick video to help you learn.  Sometimes, a feature needs a little bit more attention, so we break that down into smaller, easier to consume “bites.”  That way, if you’re just looking for a particular part of a feature, you don’t have to watch a 3-minute video to get to it!  We put together two playlists: one for our newly overhauled table feature and one for connectors.

Each video within the playlist can stand alone, but if you’re brand new to the feature, it might be a good idea for you to watch them in sequence, as they are below:

Boost your learning with our videos

The draw.io YouTube channel is a treasure trove of tips and tricks so that you can get the best out of your draw.io experience.  Most of the videos average between thirty and fifty seconds and very rarely go over a minute and a half.  This means you can search for the feature you need, watch the clip, and be on your diagramming way.  In the Learning section of our website, we have a page dedicated to draw.io Video Tutorials – this is a curated collection of videos that we think will benefit the newer draw.io fans among you.

Is there a video tutorial that you wished we had? Let us know! We’re always looking to add the content you want to see.  The only way we can do that is if you let us know, we’d love to hear from you.  Until next time – happy, diagramming!
