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 ... />.

Start by adding the polygon shape to your drawing. The polygon shape is within the "Basic" shapes group. You may need to bring the "Basic" shapes group into view from the "View" > "Shapes..." menu.

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". Note that only files exported from the actual ...

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.

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....

My suggestion would be to start dragging a shape/arrow and then press and hold Alt. That should "stop" the snapping regardless of the grid.

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 ...

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.

Select the cell, then from the menu use Edit->Edit Link, insert the URL, click OK. A new right click menu option will appear "Open link" that then takes you to that URL.

I figured out that you can do this by doing voodoo magic. Select the package and then click on the "Text" tab, next make sure the position is to the left and then select the Arrow with the line over (it's highlighted in the image), next set the top spacing (I made mine -5pt). This is the best quick way of doing this without having to do so much work. Copy ...

Unfortunately, at present time (and since a long time) there is no easy solution. If you really need to draw a filled polygon, the only solution that I could find is to represent it as a "patchwork" of simple shape (triangles, rectangles, etc.). More precisely, for each of the shapes which will compose te patchwork, you can: define the correct size, and the ...
