Assuming you're referring to the Table object in Mockup Text, when you go into edit mode (double click) select one of the rows. When you do that the table section will appear in the format panel on the right with the usual insert row/colum, before/after.

A more manual approach to getting curves in draw.io, is to edit the shape of some element. This allows for three different variations of curves, <arc ... />, <quad ... /> or <curve ... />.

as a workaround, if you need the visual element, you can create an arc as a custom shape with connection points. It adds some extra steps to the workflow, because you have to draw lines to the connect to the arc, and then another to continue to the entity. But, you can then move the 'cross over' around and lines will stay connected. after moving : custom ...

diagrams.net online supports the legacy .vsd format and the .vsdx format, which is the default format from the 2013 and 2016 versions of the tool. The actual process of importing to either drag and drop the .vsd(x) file into a diagram, use "File->Import From", or "File->Open From".

Under File->New Library you will get a dialog that allows you to drag images and SVGs into it. You can also add images/SVGs using the filesystem picker and by URL (the buttons at the bottom of the dialog). Once you’ve added your custom shapes, give the library a filename and press save. This will save the library as a library file in your selected storage ...

It's a pain. If you double-click the table to enter 'edit mode', you view the HTML for the table, by clicking the HTML button in the top toolbar. (This is only visible when editing an entity.) The table styles are done inline. And the HTML is unformatted so it all just shows up on one line. For example, if you use the 'green' table in the 'Misc' panel, you ...

While draw.io does not to the best of my knowledge allow importing fonts, I wanted to post what works for me. You have to use a extension capable browser such as Chrome or Firefox (I'm using Chrome for screenshots). To start get the "Stylish" extension for your browser (Chrome, Firefox). Next open the extension options and click the "Write New Style" button....

You can add swimlanes to the existing default 3 by right-clicking the last swimlane's title and selecting "Duplicate". Then move the inserted swimlane up/down by right-clicking its title and selecting "To Back" or "To Front" respectively.

When something similar happened to me I discovered that somehow some very long random lines spanning numerous pages had appeared. One workaround I used for my problem was to select everything I wanted, copy it and paste it into a fresh document. A second solution that worked for me was to scroll to the distant edge and then drag to select the rogue lines ...

The font defaults to whatever the last font set on a cell is. Change the font family and font size on a cell and that will become the default. To clear default styling, ensure nothing is and click "clear default styling" in the right hand format panel.

Line jumps are now natively supported. When a line is selected, there is a "Line jumps" option under the style tab.

I believe that the "Table" element in the "Mockup Text" category is the one that you are looking for.

I do it via the line tool. You can switch the endings to none and the waypoints to orthogonal so you get a "free hand" tool. If you place the first and last waypoint on each other you can draw any polygon you want.

Most likely, you have a component somewhere in the lower right corner which you're not aware of (sometimes, a nasty little text product of a spastic and involuntary click). Quick solution: Zoom out completely and do a select all. See if anything is selected besides your diagram. Once you delete that unwanted component, all blank pages should disappear.

You are right, there seems to be no simple tables like we are used to from a spreadsheet but I searched for a table in the search bar. Added a screenshot that might help:

I somewhat tried the guides above but couldn't get them to work. I then asked the question on draw.io's google groups page, and was informed that the custom field is for locally installed fonts on your system. Wrote the following which might help someone else who came across this post via google: Find the font you want on Google Fonts Download the zip of ...
