- Pure HTML5: The add-in utilizes pure HTML5 (SVG is part of the HTML5 standard). Hence, there’s no need for browser plugins like Silverlight or Visio viewer. Exported pages can be hosted on static platforms like GitHub page hosting, your hard drive, or even a USB stick.
- Layer Visibility: An inbuilt feature allowing users to toggle layers on or off.
- User-Friendly URL Structure: Obtain the URL for the published diagram directly from the browser’s address bar and share it. Specify optional parameters such as zoom level or focus shape for enhanced views.
- Multiple Outputs Supported: Local drive, GitHub Pages, and SharePoint are all supported outputs.
The published diagram is compatible with most modern browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome) and contemporary mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). This means it fully supports touch interfaces. Users can pan or zoom the published diagrams using their fingers or a mouse wheel.
