What's New in Version 22.214.171.124
June 2016 Update (v126.96.36.199): - Minor change: Converted a sidebar in the “Working in the Cloud” chapter to a Warning note; updated the TOC file accordingly. June 2016 Update (v188.8.131.52): Hey, OmniGraffle fans! Summer’s here, and our engineers have been working on a bunch of updates to OmniGraffle for Apple Pencil users. Updates you’ll find in this release include: • Minor text changes in the “Using OmniGraffle” chapter to include the iPad Pro • Added a new section to the “Drawing Basics” chapter, titled “Using Apple Pencil with OmniGraffle on iPad Pro”. This new section introduces two new ways of drawing in OmniGraffle: with or without Shape Recognition turned on. With shape recognition turned on, the shapes you draw are converted into smooth lines; without shape recognition, the things you draw with Apple Pencil don’t change. • OmniGraffle now recognizes input from Apple Pencil’s tilt sensors, so you can apply a wider stroke to an object, or apply a colored marker fill. Additionally, OmniGraffle recognizes pressure applied with Apple Pencil, enabling you to draw slightly wider strokes for a shape. • If you draw over an object while shape recognition is on, OmniGraffle applies a double-stroke to the object. Draw over it again, and OmniGraffle applies a thicker, solid stroke. You can repeat this action over and over to get the look you’re going for. • If you draw a straight line with shape recognition turned on, OmniGraffle converts the line into a straight line with an arrowhead. You can also change the arrowhead, or place an arrowhead at both ends of the line, by drawing over the line ends. Thank you for being a faithful OmniGraffle user, and for taking the time to read our documentation. If you feel compelled, please take the time to add a review, either for the app, this book, or both. Enjoy your summer! February 22, 2016 Update (v184.108.40.206): A quick update to the docs for OmniGraffle 2 for iOS (v2.7). This update greatly simplifies how to create a Stencil or Template file from existing Diagrams you’ve created with OmniGraffle. We added a couple options to the Share/Actions menu (accessible from both the Document Browser and from any open OmniGraffle document), these are: “Create Stencil from Diagram” and “Create Template from Diagram”. Be sure to read the following updated chapters: * Using the Document Browser * Using and Creating Stencils Thank you for purchasing OmniGraffle for iOS, and for taking the time to read the documentation. If you feel compelled, please submit a review of the documentation and let us know what you think or would like to see in future documentation updates. You can also reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. January 27, 2016 Update (v220.127.116.11): Happy New Year, OmniGraffle fans! We’ve decided to start out the New Year with a bang, and have a HUGE update for OmniGraffle for iOS. Additions/changes to this update include: • A new chapter, “Using and Creating Stencils”. This chapter shows you how to use the Stencils Library to add objects to the canvas. You’ll also learn how to edit an existing stencil, and how to create stencils from the things you draw in OmniGraffle. This chapter also shows you how to upload stencils to the Omni-hosted, user-contributed website and resource, Stenciltown (https://stenciltown.omnigroup.com), from directly within OmniGraffle. After creating an Omni ID on Stenciltown, you can log in and submit stencils, which makes them immediately searchable in the Stencils Library by everyone who uses OmniGraffle! • Minor updates to the Introduction, Using the Resource Browser, and a refresh of many of the screenshots in the book. November 2, 2015 Update (v18.104.22.168): Hey there, OmniGraffle fans! Autumn brings another huge swing of updates for OmniGraffle for iOS. This time around, we’ve added compatibility for Apple’s newest hardware device: the iPad Pro. And with iOS 9’s multitasking, you can keep OmniGraffle open while using another of our apps (such as OmniOutliner, OmniPlan, or OmniFocus) and take advantage of that huge new display! The biggest new feature that we’re shipping with OmniGraffle v2.5, is Shape Recognition! That’s right folks, you can draw a shape -- such as a circle, square, star, or even a line with an arrow on it -- with your finger or the new Apple Pencil, and OmniGraffle converts that into a pixel-perfect shape on the canvas. Seriously, you have to give this a try! Another iOS 9 feature we’ve taken advantage of is the Keyboard Shortcut overlay. If you have a Bluetooth keyboard paired with your iOS 9 device, just hold down the Command key (the squiggly-looking one), and an overlay appears showing you OmniGraffle’s available keyboard shortcuts. We forgot to mention the last time around that OmniGraffle (and all of our Omni apps) for iOS now support 3D Touch. You can now Peek and Pop into the last three drawings you’ve worked on, or create a new work of art. And finally, thank you for being such loyal fans of The Omni Group’s iOS apps. We appreciate your patronage, and value each and every one of you as our customers. If you ever get stuck, don’t forget that you can contact our Support Humans any time with a question; we’re here to help!

Sorry. - Added a Pro Feature sidebar, titled “Interacting with Objects Using the Action Tool” to the Drawing Basics chapter. This walks you through the process of creating a small demo in which you assign different actions to objects on the canvas.

Be sure to check out the revised chapter, “Working in the Cloud,” which covers using OmniPresence, setting up and using iCloud Drive for cloud storage, as well as how to use Other Cloud Storage Providers with OmniGraffle v2.2. This is a BETA feature which you must turn on in OmniGraffle’s Settings, which you can get to by tapping the Gear icon in the toolbar. - Updated a lot of the screenshots to cover UI changes that came with iOS 8.3 - If you find a typo or error, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - If you like the documentation, please take the time to add a review and let us know your thoughts. - Thank you for using OmniGraffle and reading this book!
