Located to the left of the Canvas, the Toolbox stores all of your shapes libraries. The standard shape library stays pinned to the toolbox with a transparent text box, text block, note, and hotspot, but you can hide/show the Toolbox under “View” in the Menu bar, and load different categories of shapes with the 'More Shapes' button at the bottom of the Toolbox. You can also:
Upload your own images to include in your diagrams.
Customize advanced shapes (BPMN, swimlane, org chart, and so on) through a context panel that will appear on the canvas when the item is dragged.
Import Microsoft Visio Stencils to include in your diagrams (only available to Pro and Team accounts).
Note: Free accounts cannot access mindmap, wireframing, and mockup shapes. Basic paid accounts do have access to mindmap shapes.
On the right side of the editor, you'll see a dock with the following essential features:
Navigation panel - Move around your document with the thumbnail view, and zoom in or out (also see F1 for hotkeys)
Graphic panel - Style and color objects and lines, and fill shapes with gradient or image. In contrast to the properties bar across the top of the editor, the graphics panel allows for a greater variety of edits over elements of the charts.
Metric panel - View and modify current position and size of objects with pixel-perfect control.
Text panel - Modify indentation and spacing within lines of text.
Page Settings panel - View and change size, margins and orientation of page. Change snap to grid preferences and the size of objects in relation to the page. Auto-paginate adds a page when objects move off the existing page.
Master Pages panel - Create master page to duplicate design across multiple pages. Master pages can create an effect similar to templates or headers/footers. Interactivity placed on Master pages will not apply to other pages.
History panel - See the history of your document and revert to a previous version.
Layers panel - Create layers to add interaction and responsive content. Use Demo Mode to view the document in its interactive state.
Click once to open a dock panel, and once more to close it. You can drag panels away from the dock and pin them around your workspace.
