Happy New Year everybody! We hope your new year's resolutions are in full effect and going smoothly (this includes creating more Gliffy diagrams, of course). We've got some new updates for Gliffy Online, which include a few new features, bug fixes and improvements. Highlighting the list are some more improvements to simplify the way you create flow charts. First, when you drop a flowchart shape on the stage, text editing will now enable immediately by default, so that you can immediately enter the purpose of that shape with no extra clicks. Second, when adding a connecting line to another shape, the line will snap straight a lot easier than it did before. Again, these are just a few improvements in our quest to make flow charting easier for you. A lot more exciting improvements to come! We also added a new Entity-Relationship symbol, made adding collaborator emails a lot more user-friendly when copying and pasting from another email client, and made our image upload processes more robust.
