Draw.io copy and paste

I tried to Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V for a Draw.io picture. When I edited picture A, picture B also changed. Is it by design?

Dear Ryota,

This depends, have you just copyed a certain Draw.io diagram from one page to another? Because once you include a Draw.io diagram into a page, it directs to one certain diagram within the Draw.io add-on. So, if you copy that imported diagram to another page.. it will still link the your old diagram. You should copy it in Draw.io first and import it to have a seperate one.

Friendly Regards,

Jeremy

I tried it in the same page but

> it directs to one certain diagram within the Draw.io add-on.

I copied on Confluence edit mode, not on draw.io edit mode. I hope that's why.

Dear Ryota,

That is indeed exactly why :-)
