Clear the draw.io cache to use the newest build
Updates, bug fixes and new features are added to draw.io, both in our online editor and for various platforms regularly. It is likely that your browser will use a cached older version of the application by default. To use the newest build, you need to clear any features or diagram editor components in your browser that have been cached.
If you are experiencing odd behaviour in the diagram editor, or with your embedded images or imported fonts, try clearing the cache as an initial troubleshooting step. This makes sure that all diagram editor features and components are up to date.
