Hi Maciej,

If you want to use a Gliffy diagram as a template for another diagram (or "copy" it) you would want to follow the directions "Create a New Diagram Based on an Existing Diagram":

If you do not want the diagram to be linked to the original, then you should NOT check the "Link to Original Diagram" box.

If you have further questions, please email


Katy, Gliffy Support

Additional Question:

What this Link to Original Diagram do?

If I marked this option it means if I change something on new diagram this change will be copied to origincal diagram?

O I found answer on my question :) on the same site ;)

Insert an Existing Diagram

You can also insert an existing diagram into a new page without creating a new diagram. Note that, in the case of an inserted diagram, if you select the option to Link to Original Diagram, any changes will affect the original diagram and will be reflected anywhere that diagram appears. If you leave this unchecked, it will create a new diagram that is not tied to the original.

Super thx for help Katy

I think you need to copy the Gliffy diagram- page and use it that way in excerpt as I believe Confluence treats Gliffy diagram as a page with edit option.

But I do not want copy Gliffy Diagram :)

Right. I think that is the only way you can do that if you are not using excerpt macro as if you try to copy and paste Gliffy diagram, Confluence will think you are referencing the page withing the same page. (or I still do not understand what you are trying to achieve :) )

You understand it... I will do it by include page or excerpt.. it is somekind of workaround...

I hope that that Gliffy macro can show gliffy pictures from other pages :)
