Meet the draw.io Alternative for Faster, Smoother Diagramming

When it comes to a great diagramming experience, the details matter. Here are just a few of the ways Gliffy takes care of the “little things” so you can diagram headache-free:

1: Drag and Drop View

See each shape as you’re dragging and dropping it onto the canvas.

2: Pin Versions

Reveal the latest version of your diagram when you’re ready with version pinning.

3: Drawing Guides

Make your diagrams pixel-perfect with drawing guides.

4: Search Diagram Text

Use Confluence’s powerful search functionality to find text within diagrams.

Create Powerful, Interactive Diagrams with Gliffy 

Dynamic teams need dynamic diagrams. Create yours with Gliffy’s powerful layer linking feature.

Expand and collapse different parts of your diagram to show only as much detail as you need, so one diagram can serve multiple audiences and you can work efficiently by scaling down when necessary. 

Dynamic diagrams are the perfect addition to documentation, presentations, and more — and you won’t find this feature with draw.io.
