What's New

Version 7.7.1

OmniGraffle 7.7.1 is a minor update focused on stability improvements and bug fixes.

• Nudging Line Points — Fixed a bug that prevented arrow keys from nudging points on a line.
• Artboard Export — Fixed a bug that caused some objects above artboard objects to not be included in exports when using the “Export from artboards only” option.
• Bevelled Rectangles — Fixed a bug that prevented the Bevelled Rectangle shape from scaling correctly.
• Copying Bézier Lines — Fixed a bug that caused Bézier lines to not be included when copied from OmniGraffle and pasted into another application.
• Copying Lines — Fixed a bug that caused line endings on Straight and Curved lines with line labels to appear in the center of a shape instead of the edge of the shape when copied from OmniGraffle and pasted into another application.
• Line Endings — Restored the Non Navigable line ending.
• Stability — Fixed a crash that occurred when sharing a document via iCloud Drive on a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
• Stability — Fixed a crash that could occur when editing a stencil document while the Stencil Browser was also displaying that document.
• Stability — Fixed a bug in Visio import that would sometimes generate OmniGraffle objects with incomplete data causing a crash when exporting those objects to another format.
• Stability — Fixed a bug in SVG import that would cause a crash if the default template had the “Size uses printer pages” setting enabled.

Used for years

Anonymous BSD 4.3 hacker

I have used OmniGraffle for years, on and off, for various technical drawings. I am currently using 7.7.1 Pro. It is really useful and powerful.

Sometimes Visio export/import doesn't work completely. I mostly blame Microsoft for that, though.

I wish it had a DWIWIANAA (Draw What I Want, I Am Not An Artist) mode :-)

Some nice new additions, but more poor decisions...


I have been using Omnigraffle Pro v. 6 for some time now. I am a big fan. The app kills Visio with its vector graphics base. That said, version 7 is leaving me less than thrilled. I love the addition of the keyboard shortcuts, but it falls short in that I want to mimic the keystrokes I already use for all of the Adobe applications and that can’t be done. The other very large issues for me have to do with the right side of the screen. The changes made to the way stencils are presented in a separate floating window are terrible. Whomever developed that must not actually use the application. The other huge issue is the decreased number of page options for the inspector which has now caused me to have to scroll up and down looking for the settings I need. Again, I can’t imagine anyone who spends any serious amount of time using the appplication would design this in this manner. You need a new product lead. I would give version 6 pro a 4.5 star rating. Version 7 I can only give it 3 stars as it is so frustrating to use I will stick with version 6 Pro.

Outstanding and So Much Better Than Visio


I have been using Omnigraffle for many years and through a number of versions. I also use Omnigraffle 2 for iPad. I am a Solution Architect and part time Mobile Developer. Needless to say I use both the MacOS and IOS extensively. While the user interface is different than Visio’s (what some consider an industry standard), I prefer Omni’s design. Some of the reasons are: intuitive to MacOS users, sensible grouping in the inspectors, awesome new image printing with the art boards, rapid prototyping (to my knowledge this doesn’t exist in Visio), single click for the most common tools, and many more. Considering the last the current price of Visio Pro is just under $600 and the pro version of Omnigraffle is at most $199 (upgrade from previous pro is only $99) and you have the best technical drawing tool out there. Well done again Omnigroup!
