Create diagrams, flow charts, and more.


OmniGraffle helps you draw beautiful diagrams, family trees, flow charts, org charts, layouts, and (mathematically speaking) any other directed or non-directed graphs. We've had people use Graffle to plan plotlines for a story, make an overview of an operating system, show the evolution of computers, and even show how diseases can spread in a closed population. If you want to organize your thoughts, your projects, or even your friends graphically using boxes and lines, OmniGraffle is your tool.

What's new in OmniGraffle

Version 7.12.1:
  • Stability: Using the Style Brush no longer triggers a crash.
  • Stencils: The Data Flow Diagram stencil added in 7.12 will be automatically installed on systems updating from a previous version if it has not yet been manually restored.
  • Stability: Fixed a crash in the App Store version on receipt validation when AirPlay 2 is in use on devices with an ethernet port.
  • Selection Handles: When moving multiple objects at the same time via arrow keys or Inspector edits, the selection handles will follow the objects.
  • Selection Handles: The selection handles for a group of lines appears in the correct location.
  • Canvases: Duplicating a canvas names the new canvas based on the original name.
  • Undo: When changes occur due to *Auto layout*, Undo will restore objects to the previous position.
  • Tables: Table objects set to use *Fit shape to text* retain that setting when their text is modified.
  • Text Tool: A click-and-drag with the Text Tool on the canvas creates a new text object of the corresponding width.
  • Variables: Variables function correctly on Shared Layers.
  • Selection: Text in a table with no fill is selectable even when *Click through objects with no fill* is enabled.
  • Shared Layers: Shared Layers can be deleted from individual canvases.
  • General: When no objects are selected on the canvas, the Delete key will not apply to the sidebar selection unless the sidebar has active focus.
  • Stability: Fixed a crash that could occur when undoing shape combinations involving images.
  • Touch Bar: The *Convert Text to Shape* option only appears when an entire object is selected.
  • Dark Mode: Pasting plain text in Dark Mode does not set the text color to white.
  • Artboards: Fixed a bug with artboards not applying to some objects only partially overlapping with the artboard.
  • Dark Mode: The column mapping for OmniOutliner importing adapts to Dark Mode.
  • Images: File > Place Image... is restricted to compatible file types.
  • Pen Tool: Bézier handles appear on click-and-drag when using the Pen Tool.

Nice program but way too powerful and complex for my needs. I used to work with Diagram! on a NeXt station, then that became OmniGraffle frankly I miss the old versions. It is as if my bicycle had become a Jumbo Jet with the years !!!

Maybe Omni could add the option/preference of a simple program/interface, a bit like TextWrangler was to BBedit. I do not mind paying OG price but I want simplicity : no layers, few options, etc. The *** rating is for too much complexity.

Bring back Diagram!

You can give MyDraw for Mac ( a try - the application provides support for macOS High Sierra (minimum system requirements: Apple OS X 10.7 and higher).

Still using OmniGraffle v4.2.3 from 2008 on macOS Sierra! It works amazingly well on Sierra and supports the Sierra tabbed window interface. Unbelievable for 9 year old software and I tip my hat to Omni Group for making their software future proof.
Version 7.4
Now version 7.3.0. I do not know release date.
Version 7.2.2

tryout noting, direct or Mac App Store only ?

Love the capabilities, and they're probably worth the price. But the UI is as counter-intuitive as any application I can think of. Unless I use it regularly I spend a lot of time looking up how to do things. Went back to the reincarnation of Canvas. Much easier to use.
Version 6.6
28 February 2016 ver.6.5.1 now.
