I have a draw.io diagram on a Confluence page. I want to copy that diagram to another page and then edit it there.
The "Duplicate" button works, but only when copying the diagram to the same page.
If I select an existing diagram after pressing "Insert - Draw.io Diagram", I cannot edit it. There are 2 variations of this:
So what I am stuck with is the complete inability to create an editable copy of a diagram. And actually I can't move a diagram from one Confluence page to another.
Go to the page you want to insert the new diagram and insert a draw.io diagram from the insert menu. In the dialog that appears select "search" on the left:

search for the original diagram by name and then select it from the results. This will insert a clone of that original in that page.
The reason we do it this way only is to enforce a page revision to be created of that page, so it happens within the edit flow of that specific page.
It would also appear in the recent diagrams list if you changed it recently.
I'm not in your source code, I was just exposing a basic need - duplication must be more straightforward as it is now. The draw.io proposes "make a copy" or "save as" directly from "file" menu. This is far more straightforward and convenient for the final user.
Thank you for your answer. I have tried the method you describe several times, and just to make sure I tried it again now and recorded the exact steps I followed. Here is my result.
So this procedure does not work for me. I hope you have a solution for this.
Thank you for fixing this. I am looking forward to an updated version without the bug. I don't think your workaround works. This is what I have done: 1. Open a blank diagram in a Draw.io editor in one browser tab 2. Open an existing diagram in a Draw.io editor in another browser tab. 3. In the existing diagram: "Edit->Select All" and "Edit->Copy" 4. In the new diagram: "Edit->Paste" <-- This menu item is greyed out and not working. I am using Firefox on Linux if that matters.
Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V works. Do you have a time estimate on when the bugfix will be rolled out? I am in the process of deploying Confluence to more users and I have to make a decision between Gliffy and Draw.io. I favour Draw.io because of more advanced features, but I will be unable to defend that decision if basic functionality like copying a diagram just doesn't work.
@Mahendran Hi. Could you create a support request at https://desk.draw.io/servicedesk/customer/portal/7/create/24 detailing the problem. We'd need the Confluence version, current plugin version, plugin version you upgraded from(if any). Thanks.
Phew, Atlassian Team 2021 blew by. With dozens of demos and a handful of keynotes, you may have missed some of the awesome Confluence Cloud sessions. Don't' worry, you can watch them all here or on Y...
