A fanTabulous Gliffy Online Update!

By Clint Dickson on Oct 20, 2010 in Latest & Greatest

GO GIANTS!

Just in time to go watch game 4 of the series, we’ve just updated Gliffy Online with an exciting new feature… Tabs. You can now open, create and view multiple documents at once within the Gliffy editor. This should speed up your productivity by allowing you to compare multiple documents more easily, as well as make copying and pasting elements between diagrams a breeze.

A new tab will be opened when creating a new document or opening an existing document. The tab will contain the document title and version number. If a document is private, a gray lock will show next to the name. If the document is public, an orange open lock will show next to the name. Also, if the document has been changed, a star (*) will appear next to the name. Also, if you want the open a new tab to either create a new document or open an existing document, just click the plus (+) button to the right of the tabs.

This feature will be added to the Gliffy Plugin for Confluence and JIRA very soon. In the meantime, please send us any feedback you have on this new feature.
