AI supported diagram creation and editing
The integrated ChatGPT features allows to create and edit graphs with natural language. This feature enhances the capabilities of yEd Live with unique actions which would otherwise not be possible or hard to achieve through the user interface. For example, creating a graph from just a description or batch editing of labels.
