What's New

Version 3.5

OmniGraffle 3.5 improves the algorithms used to route orthogonal lines that connect objects. Any document opened in this version will be updated to use the new algorithm, so you should double-check that the lines in your diagram still look the way you’d like them to.

• Orthogonal Line Routing — OmniGraffle 3.5 brings significant improvements to OmniGraffle’s line routing algorithms. Any document that is opened with OmniGraffle 3.5 will automatically be updated to use the new line routing behavior.
• Recent Documents — Added Recent Documents to the Document Browser Location List for quick access to any recently opened document across any of your sync services or stored locally.
• Other Documents — Quickly access OmniGraffle documents saved in other file storage locations via the new “Open…” option in the Locations list.
• Local Documents — “Local Documents” has been renamed to “On My iPad” or “On My iPhone” to match the iOS Files app.
• Document Close Button — The toolbar button to close the current document and navigate to the Document Browser is now located on the left side of the toolbar and the icon has been updated to include a back arrow within the folder.
• Disable Auto Layout on iOS — When you make changes to a document with OmniGraffle for iOS that uses Auto Layout then OmniGraffle will automatically disable Auto Layout for that document so that when you open the document on the Mac your iOS edits aren’t changed.
• Freehand Drawing Tool — Fixed a bug with the Freehand Drawing Tool with Shape Recognition disabled that caused drawings to not render until drawing stopped.
• Document Browser Animations — Fixed a couple bugs with the animations when switching between some views in the Document Browser.
• Bevelled Rectangles — Fixed a bug that prevented the Bevelled Rectangle shape from scaling correctly.

Gesture Issues


The UI updates are very good and intuitive (especially if you are familiar with previous versions). But this latest version has huge problems with the gestures I’ve used from earlier versions. For example I use “Duplicate” very often. I touch and hold the object and then two-finger tap where I want the duplicate to be. Instead of duplicating the object, the original object displays it is selected. The older versions would have selected the original object as soon as it was touched. If I two-finger tap a second time the object will be duplicated. This is very awkward.

Another problem is that if I tap and hold an object and then two-finger tap (which selects the first object) and then remove my finger from the original object and tap-off to unselect the first object a selection circle is displayed randomly on the screen. If I tap-off again then a selection bubble is displayed. It takes 3 tap-offs to fully clear the selection.

I use an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil and this issue displays regardless of the proximity of the Apple Pencil. I use this tool professionally and this is costing me time. Please fix the gesture issues and I will bump this back up to 5 stars because the new UI is great.

Nice app. Always has been.


I’ve been using OmniGraffle since the first version on iPad. I remain impressed with the quality of the app. It’s expensive as iOS apps go, but well worth it.

I see there are a number of complaints, here, by other users. To respond to a few of them, I use this app moderately heavily (e.g., about 25 drawings per year) and have no problems with stability nor with sync’ing. On the latter point, OmniPresence has been great for me: when I need to access my OmniGraffle drawings on my Mac (e.g., for use with OmniGraffle there), it’s proven a breeze.

Keep up the good work.

Convoluted money grab

Dwayne from Pinpoint

Spent $79 for this app, that’s a lot for an iPad app. Now they’ve “updated” and I’m back to a free version that won’t let me do anything. Have tried to get the upgrade price, it fails. Have tried to restore purchases, it fails.

Basically, if you want to pay for this app, decide if it’d be more fun to burn that money in your back yard, or give it to the OmniGroup. It’s basically the same thing, but you don’t get to watch it actually burn if you give it to them.

Note: this review comes from someone that’s been an OmniGroup customer for 15ish years. I’ve advocated for them, bought countless licenses for my business and have been a loyal customer...until today.
