How do I rename/change name of a diagram in case of creating a copy of a confluence page?

I usually create a copy of a confluence page that I created before in case of similar content and then I edit the diagram. However, I am not able to rename the diagram because it always shows the name of the original diagram from the confluence document that I copied from.

To rename the duplicate, edit the page, then edit the drawio macro (edit macro):

In that dialog set the diagram title to change the name:

Hi @Matin Shaikh ,

Welcome to the community !!

I found a workaround:
When you are copying a page and before saving the page, click on the drawio macro section and click on Duplicate. This allows you to create a copy of diagram and rename. You can delete the old one.


It worked! Thanks. However, it is still a workaround. Not sure why copying a page does not allow renaming in the first place.

Once the page is copied, copy andrename the diagram to the different name.

Hi Pramod,
Thanks for replying to my post. If you also meant duplicating and then renaming, then thanks a lot. It worked.
