Deleting some unpopular/outdated shapes in Cacoo

We’re tidying up the shapes library

We want to provide our users with shapes they love to use. We’ve noticed that some shapes aren’t getting much use or have simply become outdated. Which means it’s time for a bit of housekeeping.

The following shapes will be eliminated on Sept 15, 2021:

  • Sticky Notes*
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Electronic Circuit
  • Office Equipment
  • Network
  • Office layout
  • Sitemap Icon
  • File
  • Dimension Line
  • Greeting Card
  • Smiley
  • People
  • Arrow
  • [Old] Basic
  • [Old] Wireframes
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • Balloon
  • Web service
  • Simple Icon

*These have been replaced by the new sticky notes feature located in the tool menu.

What about my existing diagrams?

Don’t worry: if you’re currently using any of these shapes in your diagrams, they are safe.

But after Sept 15, 2021, you won’t see them available for use in the shapes library anymore.

How do I save the shapes I want?

If you wish to save any shapes for future use, you can save them as a custom shape. Another option is to place the shapes on a separate sheet for copying and pasting to other diagrams whenever you need them.


We hope this update helps you locate the shapes you actually want and use them faster. And we hope it makes everyone’s diagrams look fantastic.
