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 7.13:
  • Site Licensing: OmniGraffle now supports Site Licensing for businesses, schools, and other organizations. If you are interested in learning more, or purchasing a site license for OmniGraffle, please contact
  • Stencils: Added a Kanban board stencil.
  • Images: Significantly improved performance when using large images.
  • Images: Improved performance when using images with transparency.
  • Images: Fixed image rendering issues that resulted in what looked like partial grid lines appearing on screen when using macOS Catalina.
  • Images: Images display at correct resolution on screen when using macOS Catalina with only a Retina display.
  • Text: The Allow / Disallow Hyphenation setting is applied in correctly when using macOS Catalina.
  • Images: Fixed the handling of image settings when objects involved in shape combinations contained images.
  • Shadows: During and after editing an image with a shadow in Image Mask mode, the shadow renders properly.
  • SVG: Correct Z-order is preserved when dragging an SVG image onto the canvas as part of a multi-file import.
  • Canvases: When adding a new canvas, the units of the currently selected canvas will be applied to the new one.
  • Line Routing: Fixed a bug causing line routing to connect lines to the origin under specific conditions.
  • Shadows: When moving tables around that have a shadow applied, the shadow receives the same translation.
  • Tables: Prevent table cells from incorrectly changing size when Fit shape to text is set.
  • Inspectors: Image Size listed in the Image inspector always displays true pixel size instead of taking DPI into account.
  • Inspectors: The Solid Fill color palettes can be customized by dragging a color chit to it.
  • Stability: Fixed a hang with orthogonal lines when the line routing logic tried to layout two lines connected to the same object and each other.
  • Tables: Fixed a bug with editing or connecting lines to tables that have been duplicated.

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
