(Kind-of side note: I'm surprised there are not more questions and discussions here, about it. Is there a different forum for Gliffy users, maybe not one that Atlassian runs?)
I suspect I already know the answer to this, and that the idea I had is not quite workable in Gliffy.
Large diagram, with a lot of boxes, and also a lot of arrows. Some of these boxes can be categorized together, in "slices." The boxes that make up these slices are not always all adjoining.
I'd like to do this so that these highlights are visually contiguous, with straight-edged but polygonal shapes - an "L" shape would be an example of this.
My thought was to use the layers in Gliffy to have partly transparent shapes behind arrows-and-boxes, to highlight the different slices. Viewers would have to edit the diagram non-destructively to turn the layers off and on, but they could be given instructions to that effect.
I think this is just not there, in Gliffy. Nor does it seem possible to edit an existing polygon from a shape bank.
I'd be happy to hear that I'm wrong about this.
Thanks, & sorry for novella-sized post,
