18.2.6 Cloud Release Highlights

Diagramming - Paths

Path functionality is significantly expanded, including support for parallel paths and paths with multiple start and end points.

Learn More

Paths functionality has been enhanced in a variety of areas.

  • Selecting multiple paths highlights each path in a different color (which is listed in the paths list). Note that the Narrative view button is disabled when multiple paths are selected

  • Paths are differentiated through shape and line color, as well as line and arrowhead thickness; this functionality is also present when the diagram is checked in

  • Set multiple start and end points, and click lines to add them as waypoints

  • Diagram elements not included in paths are faded out, and dashed lines to disconnected shapes can now be removed

  • Use iGrafx API to collect complex path data

  • Path selection will now be displayed when exporting to image; multi-path selection can also be exported

  • Enter a URL to navigate to a diagram that already has the desired path highlighted

Learn More
