cannot edit diagram on confluence page

I'm not able to edit a diagram from the confluence page. We have 9 different diagrams on the confluence page and 8 of them are editable by hovering over the diagram and clicking the pencil icon



When I hover over the diagram that I'm trying to edit, the pencil icon is missing


Another way to edit is by clicking the diagrams link in the left sidebar on the page, clicking on the specific diagram, and then hovering over the diagram and clicking the pencil icon.




When I do it this way, I am getting this error: error.png


I am not sure what to do to fix this. The diagram shows properly on the page but we have no way to edit this diagram or export it to create a brand new diagram.

ok thanks! the first solution you linked worked for me. For anyone else with this issue, just make sure you download the xml file and not the png

Like Zak_Laughton likes this

When you insert and create new diagram in a page , and later you delete it from page, the diagram file is still attached to page


you can only insert the old diagram ( but not create new one ) by embed diagram , and can not edit it any more even you click to edit it 


This is the important bug between and confluence that need to be fixed ASAP can only download the old diagram file and re-import to new created one manually ,  T-T
