Highlights of New Version

The enhanced diagram editor introduces several interesting features that help you to draw your diagrams faster and easier.

Incorporate Element Into a Flow

Now, you can select a connector and click on Incorporate New Element in the context bar. After choosing an element type from the context menu, the element will be inserted into the diagram, in the way it splits the selected connector into two while the new element is placed in the middle. The whole connected diagram will be moved accordingly.
