Following feedback from our customers we’ve moved our platform to a more modern design focusing on some key areas: accessibility, scannability, and introducing a modern look and feel that users are more familiar with. We now have cleaner calls to action and pages with scannable hierarchy to help relieve decision fatigue.
The quick language change was relocated to the profile dropdown menu. As a Designer or Architect you can quickly change between more than one language, it will populate the languages available. This does not change the UI language, only the content language.

New diagram template available! Create maps where the whole shape is clickable when there is a link on the object. When clicking anywhere on a shape with more than one link, the links panel opens as if you clicked on the link icon. If the shape is a call activity, it treats the entire shape as a clickable area to navigate to the called activity. This makes it easy for users to explore your organization and its various content areas and processes. This functionality is available on Dashboards using the diagram gadget, and is now also available in the Model area.
