• Option + Shift to Duplicate on Axis — Holding down option and shift while dragging a selection duplicates the selection and constrains movement to either the horizontal or vertical axis.
• AppleScript — AppleScript code which assigns plain text to a shape correctly preserves the current text alignment.

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.

Does not goes further welcome screen - Was not able to pass welcome screen and actually try the app
Disapointed Long Time User - 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
App No Longer Works - My PAID version no longer works, won’t allow me to create new documents or open new ones. The app wont unlock, it doesnt restore the purchase. I’ve been a happy user for many years. This stinks.
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!
long term user - upgraded because of high sierra and have been using omnigraffle pro for 5 years. If not already using omnigraffle, find something else.
