With the free two week trial, you can try all of the features of Standard and Pro without buying anything. After the trial, you can continue to use OmniGraffle to view documents for free.

Release Notes:

OmniGraffle 7.3 improves Presentation Mode by adding support for artboards, zoom controls, and a sidebar for navigation. Use arrow keys to navigate between artboards (left/right) and canvases (up/down). Move your mouse to the left edge of the screen to reveal the presentation sidebar. Zoom controls are available in the View menu, and keyboard shortcuts and gestures work too.

• Presenting with Artboards — Added support for presenting artboards in Presentation Mode.
• Zoom Controls when Presenting — Added the ability to zoom and pan in Presentation Mode.
• Presentation Mode Sidebar — Added a sidebar that lists canvases and artboards.
• OmniOutliner Import — Added support for OmniOutliner 5’s .ooutline file format.
• Split Screen — OmniGraffle windows can now share full screen mode with another application using Apple’s Split Screen functionality. You can even have two OmniGraffle windows sharing the same full-screen Space.
• Inspectors — Did you know you can grab individual inspectors and rearrange them? OmniGraffle 7.3 adds grab handle indicators on inspectors to make that more clear.
• Adjustable Shapes — Adjustable shape handles would often be confused with Bézier points and get stuck under resize handles. Now the adjustable shape handles have a different look and get preference when they overlap resize handles.
• Inspecting Locked Objects — Inspector fields now show values for locked objects but prevent editing until the object is unlocked.
• Aligning to Locked Objects — Now you can align unlocked objects to locked objects with the Alignment tools.
• Group Alignment — Fixed a bug causing alignment buttons to be unavailable when one item in the selection was a group.
• Performance — Fixed a memory leak that was causing poor performance on files that were open for a long period of time.
• Performance — Opening and closing the sidebar and inspectors is much smoother now.
• Text Label Performance — Typing in a text label field is no longer excruciatingly slow. The rendering dirt has been cleaned up too.
• Windows and Full Screen — Occasionally when moving documents between two different sized displays or re-opening a document on a different size display the application window wouldn’t adapt correctly. This would also occasionally occur with Full Screen mode when switching displays.
• Auto Layout — Fixed an issue with undoing Auto Layout that would sometimes cause object ID collisions.
• Text Tool — Fixed a bug causing the Text Tool to always be active when selected instead of using the “Keep tool active” Drawing Preference.
• Lines with Labels — Duplicate now includes a line’s label when the line is duplicated.
• Tooltips — Fixed a bug that caused incorrect tooltips for inspector controls.
• Hot Keys — Fixed a bug that caused the Tool Hot Keys to not appear in the Drawing Tools preference pane.
• Rendering — Cleaned up some gray highlight artifacts that would sometimes persist after selecting and moving objects.
• Subgraphs — Fixed a rendering issue with the Outline sidebar tab when editing the contents of a subgraph.
• Stability — Fixed a crash caused by switching from the Selection sidebar tab to the Layers sidebar tab with text selected on the canvas.
• Stability — Fixed a crash that would sometime occur when switching between or closing document windows.

Version 7.2.2
Review by Cycles4Fun

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!

Bait and Switch - Not Free Just Demo - This is just a 2 week DEMO with in app purchase after expire. This isn’t what most of us expect as a base model with extras as in app purchase. Should be removed as a free app from store.

Version 7.3
Review by NTEI

Diagramming is now one of my favorite hobbies. - Omnigraffle is fantastic and makes better looking diagrams than any other app out there. I wasn’t a heavy user of OG6, but did own it, though I can’t tell many of the differences between the two. Nonetheless, the seemless workflow between Mac and iPad, the myriad tools and intuitive interface, and the way it takes advantage of the Magic Trackpad make it a delight worth 5 stars. It isn’t without fault though. In my workflow I use the magnet tool a lot and (snapping) gets in the way more often than not, even when I turn it off, magnets don’t go where I want them. But thats really my only main gripe. Thanks OG Team
