Creating Ilograph diagrams

Let’s get started by creating, editing, and saving a simple Ilograph diagram.

Creating a diagram

In the main menu (accessed via the top-left of the app), click the blue “New diagram” button. A new diagram will appear; its IDL source will be visible in a panel on the left. Your new diagram is pre-populated with a handful of resources and a sample perspective.

Editing your diagram

Changing the IDL in the source panel will change the diagram in the main panel. After making edits to the diagram, you’ll be able to save it.

Saving your diagram

When you’re ready to save your changes, click the “Save changes” link at the top of the source panel. The first time you save, you will be prompted to choose a name for your diagram. If you have not already done so, you first will be asked to create an account and choose a user name.

Sharing your diagram

Diagrams saved to the could can be shared with others. To do so, click the “Privacy and collaboration” button in the top-right of the app. In this dialog you can add editors and read-only viewers.
