Select Network Diagram from the IT & Networks category under New Document on the dashboard.
Add Network Symbols
You can drag and drop network diagram symbols from the left panel to your workspace to start your diagram.
There are a few ways to keep adding symbols. You can:
- Keep dragging and dropping from the library or the shape menu
- Use Quick Action Controls
- Use your keyboard
Quick Action Controls
To add the next step using Quick Action Controls, click on any of the yellow dots around a selected shape. These Quick Action Control buttons let you drag your mouse to draw a connected line and then choose a shape to add to the end of the line from a pop-up menu of options.
This menu is intelligent and will populate with the last 6 symbols you've used in your diagram, so you'll always have the right symbols at your fingertips.
Using Your Keyboard
You can also add shapes by holding down Ctrl and then using the arrow keys to add the most recently used shape in the direction of the arrow. When you add shapes this way, shapes are always equidistant and perfectly aligned.
Search for Symbols
To search for additional symbols, just type any words in the Search for symbols box. The search results will be grouped by the libraries they were found in.
You can drag and drop symbols directly from the search results into your workspace.
Click on the plus sign next to any group of results and you can either choose Add result or Add library for future use. Add result only adds the symbols that matched your query. Add library will add the entire library the symbols were found in.
