Editors' Review

+

Considered a classic diagramming application by many Mac users, OmniGraffle helps you visually represent ideas, tasks, activities, and other things. The new 6.0.5 version introduces a revamped interface that addresses the dated look of its predecessor while improving on functionality and intuitiveness.

Pros

Great new interface: The OmniGraffle UI now sports dynamic sidebars that appear when needed and disappear when not in use. An approach similar to Microsoft's tidying of the Office ribbon might have been preferable, but Omni Group's revamping of the OmniGraffle interface is good.

Free syncing with OmniPresence: Your projects can be quickly shared with your other Mac or iOS devices through a background synchronization process. You can check what's being synchronized as well as pause the process at any time.

Presentation mode: This mode eases the presentation of diagrams by going full-screen and making canvases behave like slides. These canvas slides can be moved like a PowerPoint presentation, using either mouse clicks or arrow keys.

Multiple formats for exporting and Visio support: OmniGraffle can export diagrams or other creations in a number of formats, including BMP, TIFF, PDF, JPG, EPS, SVG, Visio XML, PICT Vector, PNG, and PSD. It can also conveniently import Visio XML files.

Cons

Designed for single-screen use: The older version of OmniGraffle let you use two screens; the new version does not. Some users will have to change the way they use the app, but for most users, the single-screen limitation will not be a major issue.

No CAD integration: OmniGraffle lacks support for AutoDesk file formats and cannot integrate CAD.

Bottom Line

Feature-rich and relatively advanced, OmniGraffle may intimidate some users, even those who have tried its earlier versions. Some adjustment to the new interface will be needed, but this application is not that difficult to figure out. It offers a great range of features and outputs beautiful diagrams, wireframes, and sketches.

What's new in version 7.3
  • Presenting with Artboards — Added support for presenting artboards in Presentation Mode.
  • Zoom Controls when Presenting — Added the ability to zoom and pan in Presentation Mode.
  • Presentation Mode Sidebar — Added a sidebar that lists canvases and artboards.
  • OmniOutliner Import — Added support for OmniOutliner 5’s .ooutline file format.
  • Split Screen — OmniGraffle windows can now share full screen mode with another application using Apple’s Split Screen functionality. You can even have two OmniGraffle windows sharing the same full-screen Space.
  • Inspectors — Did you know you can grab individual inspectors and rearrange them? OmniGraffle 7.3 adds grab handle indicators on inspectors to make that more clear.
  • Adjustable Shapes — Adjustable shape handles would often be confused with Bézier points and get stuck under resize handles. Now the adjustable shape handles have a different look and get preference when they overlap resize handles.
  • Inspecting Locked Objects — Inspector fields now show values for locked objects but prevent editing until the object is unlocked.
  • Aligning to Locked Objects — Now you can align unlocked objects to locked objects with the Alignment tools.
  • Group Alignment — Fixed a bug causing alignment buttons to be unavailable when one item in the selection was a group.
  • Performance — Fixed a memory leak that was causing poor performance on files that were open for a long period of time.
  • Performance — Opening and closing the sidebar and inspectors is much smoother now.
  • Text Label Performance — Typing in a text label field is no longer excruciatingly slow. The rendering dirt has been cleaned up too.
  • Windows and Full Screen — Occasionally when moving documents between two different sized displays or re-opening a document on a different size display the application window wouldn’t adapt correctly. This would also occasionally occur with Full Screen mode when switching displays.
  • Auto Layout — Fixed an issue with undoing Auto Layout that would sometimes cause object ID collisions.
  • Text Tool — Fixed a bug causing the Text Tool to always be active when selected instead of using the “Keep tool active” Drawing Preference.
  • Lines with Labels — Duplicate now includes a line’s label when the line is duplicated.
  • Tooltips — Fixed a bug that caused incorrect tooltips for inspector controls.
  • Hot Keys — Fixed a bug that caused the Tool Hot Keys to not appear in the Drawing Tools preference pane.
  • Rendering — Cleaned up some gray highlight artifacts that would sometimes persist after selecting and moving objects.
  • Subgraphs — Fixed a rendering issue with the Outline sidebar tab when editing the contents of a subgraph.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash caused by switching from the Selection sidebar tab to the Layers sidebar tab with text selected on the canvas.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash that would sometime occur when switching between or closing document windows.
