I used an Azure icon collection in draw.io/diagrams.net to make my diagram.

I loaded the icons following this post. You can open the design page with the icons loaded by following this link.

When I initially selected the icon in the sidebar it had a description of what it was.

When I add it to the page though, I can't see the name of the icon anymore, which makes it hard to tell which icon I used without making a good guess and scanning through the libraries.

Am I missing something? How do I tell which icon/shape I added?

EDIT: Following the comment I added a few items.

Adding a General Shape - Ellipse and pressing Ctrl+e I see;


For the built in Azure collection adding a "DNS Zones" I see:


For the external collection "1. Azure Icon Set - DNS-Zones" I see:


Ideally, I would like to hover over the icon on the page and see the same pop-up that I see when I hover over the icon in the Shapes Panel.

If you select an icon and click Ctrl+E, you should see additional code. Do you see a icon name also under "shape ="?

If not, please attach a print screen of it and the code so we could check if something can be done to improve this.

  • I updated the question with the code. You should be able to reproduce it without a screenshot.

  • Thanks. I added this to our GitHub so you could track the progress github.com/jgraph/drawio/issues/1893 At the moment, Ctrl+e is the closest we have.
