I would like to have a single document that contains several diagrams (all the UML diagrams that I need for my project).

How can I add a new page in a Draw.IO document?


draw.io doesn't currently have the capability to have mutliple, separate diagrams within one file. There is a feature request open for this item.

  • ok. Thank you for this information. – ltu Sep 25 '14 at 10:27

You can add more pages to a draw.io file by placing an object where the new page belongs. The new page will automatically added in order to contain the new object. If you want to have a new page on the right of the current page, place the new object on the right the current page. If you want the new page below the current page, place the new object below the current page.

  • This does not actually add a "separate" diagram. It just makes the diagram larger. – gravidThoughts Apr 20 '16 at 20:55

Even though draw.io doesn't support multiple pages, there is a workaround which kind of solves this: Layers (Ctrl+Shift+L).

You can add several layers to a document using the Layers panel, and then tick the layer(s) you want to see, and select the layer you want to add new stuff to and work with. If you have created stuff at one layer you want to move, simply select the elements, and then select the new layer and hit the button to move selected items to current layer.

Usually layers are used for purposes like different detail levels, or adding explanations/comments on a separate layer. Or in a floor plan you could have the base layer showing the rooms, and then extra layers for electricitiy, pipes, furniture, ... In this context you'll show several layers at the same time.

However, opting to only display one level at a time, you'll mimic having pages and the contents can be totally separated from each other.
