Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage long loading and stopped to save our diagrams

Hi, it seems that stopped to work correctly (after Confluence team made UX changes?).

1. The first issue is, that after clicking on "Insert more content -> diagram" (being on already published page), Confluence hangs for about 10 seconds (nothing is being loaded). After that 10 secs - it magically opens

2. Second - after creating new diagram and publishing page, we tried to edit it. After clicking on "save" in window, thumbnail of diagram changes on Confluence but after clicking "Publish" the updated diagram is not being saved. By that bug, we lost couple of hours of our work today... :-(

We're using Confluence Cloud and tested it on:

  • OS: MacOS Sierra 10.12.3
  • Browser: Google Chrome 60.0.3112.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I also notice today that we can't update or create new io.draw diagram on Confluence Cloud.

- On Chromium[1]

When creating a new diagram and add a text then save with the filename Hello, and publish, the Confluence page shows `Error: Invalid descriptor`. However, if I download the attachments, Hello.png and hello.xml and open then directly in io.draw, I can see the text.

If I try to edit the newly create diagram from Confluence, io.draw pop up the window to choose a template(e.g. Blank Diagram). If I select a Blank Diagram and add again a text and save, input again the filename. io.draw says `File already exists`.

If now I edit an existing diagram, created few weeks ago, I can see the diagram in io.draw editor. If I edit it and add a text, I can save it. When publishing the Confluence page, the change is not rendered. However, if I edit again the Confluence page, I can see my changes in the macro rendering. However again, if I edit the diagram in io.draw, the change is lost. Likewise creating a new diagram, if I download the attachments and open them directly in io.draw, I can see the text.

- On Firefox[2]

I can create a new diagram and save it. If I update it and publish, the attachments(png and xml) are updated but the Confluence page does not show the changes after publishing. When editing the Confluence page I can see my changes in the macro rendering window.

That's odd! The io.draw plugin was working well like 2 weeks ago (Sep 25, 2017).

- Confluence Cloud version: 1000.0.0-781c963
- io.draw Confluence plugin version:1.4.2-AC


- [1] Chromium version: 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 16.04 (64-bit)
- [2] Firefox version: 56.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu
