What's New

Version 3.4

OmniGraffle 3.4 is focused on stability improvements, performance, and bug fixes.

• Drag and Drop File Names — OmniGraffle now uses the object name as the file name when you drag and drop an object to another app and includes the document’s name when dragging and dropping a multi-selection.
• Image Mask Performance — Improved performance when adjusting the masking of large images.
• Canvas Preview Performance — Canvas Previews no longer redraw continuously as the sidebar scrolls.
• Drag and Drop of Lines — Fixed a bug that caused lines to draw above line labels when dropped on a new canvas.
• Drag and Drop of Artboards — Fixed a couple bugs with moving and exporting artboards using Drag and Drop.
• Stencil Window — Fixed a bug that prevented the Stencil Window from dismissing when another toolbar item was tapped.
• Automation — Fixed a bug causing the selection highlight to show on the wrong canvas if an object was added using JavaScript.
• Automation — Fixed a bug preventing canvas previews in the sidebar from updating if the canvas was updated by adding objects using JavaScript.
• Swipe to Delete — Fixed a bug that prevented swipe to delete from working on the last canvas or the last layer in a document.
• Line Labels — Fixed a bug that caused line labels to draw in the wrong location after changing the line type.
• Undo — Fixed a bug that occasionally caused the inspector to show “Nothing to Inspect” after undoing a change.
• Stability — Fixed a bug that allowed locked groups to be moved with Drag and Drop causing a crash.
• Stability — Fixed a crash caused by using Zoom to Selection on an object on a locked layer.
• Stability — Fixed a memory leak when dragging stencils into a document.

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.
