Gliffy diagrams permanently linked when Confluence pages copied

I've used the Copy option in Confluence to create a new page which will build upon the content of the original page, but needs to be a separate entity. When Gliffy diagrams are updated on the new page, they are also being updated on the original page, and vice-versa. How do you ensure these changes do not appear on the original page (and vice versa). Despite renaming all components, the pages and all components on them seem to be permanently linked, whereas I need them to be separate entities.

Please see the graphic on the bottom of this page in our documentation — you should be able to click on the ellipses of the diagram macro on your page and then select "unlink diagram":

If that doesn't work, you could trying inserting a new diagram, selecting "Search for a Template" and using the existing diagram as a template for the new diagram. Make sure the "link to original diagram" box is unchecked. 

Please let me know if neither of those work!

Hi Samie, thanks for your response. The second option works (inserting a new diagram and deleting the one originally copied as part of the page copy), but I'd consider that to be a workaround. Re the preferred first option, why do I get the message "Diagram with this name exists in page" or even "There was an error on the server while unlinking the diagram" when I press "Unlink Diagram"?

I'm not sure, but thank you so much for the extra detail! I let our team know that you're getting that error message when you try to use the unlink button.
