What's New

Version 7.6

OmniGraffle 7.6 adds new features to Stencils. There are new view controls in the Stencil Browser, more options for where the Browser appears, and we’ve made it easier to build up your Stencil library by adding the ability to drag from the canvas to a stencil file. File management in the Resource Browser has also improved, making it easier to organize stencils. This version also fixes some of the most reported bugs and crashes; thank you for sending us those reports!

• New Preferences for Default Stencil Browser Location — In addition to Popover and Floating Window, there are two new options for default Stencil Browser locations: Right Sidebar and Left Sidebar. Look for the configuration option on the General tab in Preferences. From any of these locations, double-click on a stencil in the file list to open that stencil as a new floating window.
• Drag and Drop Objects onto Stencils — Quickly add new objects to a stencil by holding down the option key (the shortcut for duplicating) and dragging an object from the canvas to the stencil browser. Drop it on the Grid, List, or Canvas view and the object is immediately saved to that stencil. Change the object’s position in the stencil or any of its metadata by choosing Edit Stencil from the gear menu in the Stencil Browser.
• Collapse and Expand Stencil Canvases — If you organize stencils using multiple canvases then the new disclosure triangle next to each stencil canvas in the Stencil Browser makes it easy to hide and show them.
• View Options for Stencils — The Stencil Browser now has a button with an eye icon where you can find various view settings. Background color options are available for the stencil Grid, List, and Canvas views. Stencils appear in the Grid and List view based on their hierarchy in the stencil file; choose Reverse Order to change the order. When viewing stencils as a list there are additional controls for the size of the rows and what metadata is displayed.
• Grid as Default — The Grid view in the Stencil Browser is now the default but OmniGraffle now also remembers which view you last used and uses that preference next time.
• Non-printing Layers in Stencils — Objects on non-printing layers in Stencil documents aren’t shown in the Grid or List view of the Stencil Browser. Useful when you want to provide some examples or annotations for your stencil objects in the canvas view and hide that content in the Grid or List view.
• Drag and Drop Files in the Resource Browser — The Resource Browser now supports dragging and drop files between folders to make organization easier.
• Rename Folders in the Resource Browser — Folders can now be renamed directly from the Resource Browser.
• New Folder from Selection in the Resource Browser — There is a new option in the gear menu of the Resource Browser to create a new folder with the selected files.
• Object Data Inspector — The Note inspector has been renamed to the Object Data inspector.
• Presentation Mode — Stencil windows and the color picker are now hidden when entering Presentation Mode.
• Click and Paste — Clicking the canvas or the gray area around the canvas before pasting objects more reliably places the objects where the click took place.
• Page Scale — Fixed a bug that prevented proper document scaling when printing with a scale setting other then 100% in Page Setup.
• Actions Exported to PDF — Fixed a bug that caused some “Jump to…” actions to not export correctly to PDF.
• Print to PDF — Fixed a crash that would happen when overwriting an existing PDF using the Print to PDF feature on a TouchBar MacBook Pro running macOS 10.12 Sierra.

Disapointed Long Time User

Jesse Donat

I’ve been using Omnigraffle for over 10 years. I upgraded from 5 today, begrudgingly, because it would no longer run on High Sierra.

I had avoided upgrading because I prefered the floating menus of 5, but now that I am forced to use 7 I am very disapointed.

Frankly my biggest complaint is the UI. I have a fairly large monitor would like to be able to see all the panes at once as I could in 5 without the need to switch back and forth and back and forth. It’s painful.

- The UI is quite jumpy overall. Automatic layout is super jumpy whereas in 5 it was reasonably smoothly animated.
- Attaching arrows to magnets often takes a couple tries.
- The right pane is “context sensitive” and switches back to the first tab whenever you select a different object type than the previous. This doesn’t make ANY SENSE when I an working on the Document tab which has nothing to do with context.
- The automatic layout seems much worse than 5 and sometimes randomly stops working for a bit before starting up again.
* Lines randomly dart around things that seemingly don’t exist
* Lines to/from grouped objects are entirely ueslessly insane.
* Linked Objects randomly get placed miles apart, particularly when importing from Graphviz
- The standard shapes are much more dull

Upgraded to High Sierra and Now they want $100 more to be able to use it.


This is unbelievable. I upgraded to High Sierra and the older version I already bought and paid for no longer works. They offer a discount to get the new version that will work, but it’s still $100 for a program that quite frankly is pretty limited in scope. It’s a great program to use, but I shoudn’t have to buy it twice in the span of a couple of years. This is what is wrong with the computer industry today. They want to take your money and price gouge. I have files I have to update regularly and now I can’t. Other reputable companies will allow you to upgrade for free or support older versions—because it’s the right thing to do. I’m so disappointed with you Omnigroup!

Effectively a forced upgrade; couldn’t even access old files


Forced to buy upgrade due to incompatibility of Mac OS X High Sierra with version 5.4. There were no warnings about incompatibility with High Sierra, nor am I simply allowed to access my previous files to so much as export them. The program simply wouldn't open. This upgrade is forced despite stating on their website that "Whenever you upgrade your operating system down the road, our built-in software updater will get you updated to the latest version compatible with your current OS". This statement is misleading as there is no implication that payment must be provided to retain functionality of a program for which I have a functional license.
