Doesn't quite have as much as you need

The template setup isn't great right now. If you're trying to mind-map, or you're trying to build an architecture diagram, or even an ERD, this tool just doesn't get the job done anymore. It's been a long time since this app has met my needs, and it hurts to say so.

Omnigraffle - once great, now awful

When I first switched to mac maybe 15 years ago, this tool was amazing. Blew Visio out of the water. Version 6 was bad, and Version 7 is worse. Almost none of the templates work for any complex diagram types. If you want to just draw a few blocks and link them together, then this tool will work, but in 2020, there are a dozen good free online tools that do that. If you want to do ERDs, Class Diagrams, architectural diagrams with call outs and communicate effectively, you'll end up severly frustrated. Almost NONE of the default stencils for complex types now work correctly, with basic resizing errors and graphics stupidity - a class box where the class name area resizes when you stretch the box vertically. Corners that don't stay a fixed radius, but resize width and height indepentently leaving your diagrams looking sloppy and embarrassingly horrible. This tool is way too expensive to have this level of functionality not work, and I don't know what we paid for in the last two upgrades, but I have only got less functionality I care about for my money. This tool is a giant rip off. Save your money and use any one of the free online diagram tools, you'd be glad you did.

Sorry to hear OmniGraffle 6 and 7 failed to meet your expectations. If you haven’t yet, please email our support team at with details on the bugs you are encountering so we can diagnose them and work on fixes. Thank you!

Great program, poor documentation

I've used Omnigraffle for years and it's amazing for several kinds of things I do often. I even moved up to the Pro version recently, and am really enjoying it.

That said, the documentation needs work. For example, I can "Make Table", which appears to be a really nice feature: you take an object and replicate it into a table. Since you can type and style text in an object, you can make nice tables.

But what if you want to tile your objects such that there's space between them and they don't touch? Hmmm... no documentation. What if I make a group with an invisible object that's larger than the one I want to display? Nope. Grid controls? Nope. If I select one copy of the object and rotate it, it, um, grows. But that doesn't do what I want for all rows, just that one cell (sort of).

This is the second or third feature that I've tried to use and can't find documentation anywhere. (And when you do a Googl search, you get more craacked-opy pages than documentation pages.
