Here is a list of all supported file formats.

Creating a New File

Selecting File -> New brings up the following:

Here we can enter the name of the new file, and select a template for it.  The default template, Basic, produces a new blank document.  Other templates can either be chosen from the drop-down menu in the top right, or if available from a web page, selected by clicking From template URL in the bottom right.  Choosing this latter option then allows us to enter the web page's URL.

Entering an invalid URL will produce an error message.

Returning to the drop-down template menu, let us choose Software design as an example.  The number which follows each template category name tells us how many templates are available within that category.  In the case of software design, we have 12 to choose from.

If can click on one of these template icons, followed by Create, and we are then asked if we want to open this new file in the existing window, or a new window.

Having made our choice, the new file will be populated with a dummy diagram containing many of the commonly used elements assoicated with that template, in order to provide you with a starting point.

Opening an existing file

Selecting File -> Open from brings up the following sub-menu:



You can choose to open a file from any of the five storage options, or, if a file is available from a web page, you can open it via that web page's URL.

Note that if you are opening from any of the remote storage options (Google Drive, Dropbox, or OnDrive) you may need to provide authentication if you are not logged in.  Details on this are provided in the individual sections for each storage option.

Once any authentication has been completed, the file picker associated with storage option will be brought up.  For this example, we will be starting in Dropbox, and opening a file from local storage in the browser.



Here we can see that only one file is currently being stored in the browser.  Clicking this file will cause the file to open in a new tab.

Because we have opened the file from local browser storage, Browser is the selected storage option for that file.  If we save the file using File -> Save, it will be saved in the Browser, overwriting the previous version.  To save it in Dropbox, or any other storage option, use File -> Save as and change to the desired storage option.
