OmniGraffle for Mac

06 April 2021

Create diagrams, flow charts, and more.

What is OmniGraffle for Mac

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 7.18.5:
  • General — Saving new documents prompts for name and location when allowing OmniGraffle to store documents in iCloud Drive.
  • Groups — Connected lines inside of groups transform along with the whole group.

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!

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.

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.

As to the price, everyone should think about the benefit in a long run. Think about these cheap, so-called easy to use apps that actually make things not easy and disturbing to go before this one, they are not pricey, but you know what? They can’t even be used when needed.....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, that’s something you should remember about. Now back to the app, it almost covers everything in my work that I have to get done with, mainly the flow charts and org charts. Previously a crash problem happened when canceling an export while the Font Panel was showing, now that the bug has been fixed then things went pretty good I think. Overall, it’s worth a try and a pretty much reliable one.

I use this for drawing flow charts and it is a breeze to use. No other app comes close. But it is very expensive imo. A price tag for around $25 would be more acceptable.

So you gave OmniGraffle 5.x a 1 star rating in every category because there wasn't a curly bracket stencil. Reported for being an ass.

I was looking for a Visio-type program for the Mac and was very excited to find OmniGraffle. The program appears to be an excellent solution for Mac users needing diagramming tool. However, don't be fooled. After one hour of pleasant use, I needed a curly bracket/brace {} stencil. For the next hour I scoured the entire program looking for this basic stencil to no avail. This is one of the most basic of tools in Visio and is even easy to find in PowerPoint. A simple web search indicates that users have complained about this on OmniGraffle's own blog since 2006. Thanks, OmniGraffle for including a country map of Botswana but for leaving out a bracket. 1 star for the wasted time caused by the idiocy of this omission.

I own a copy of OmniGraffle 3. If I read the 'what's new' list I find mostly bug fixes, which should be made available also to old customers. Now, if I want a fix for the bugs I also need a new license. It looks like Microsoft has taught a good lesson to many small software houses. I have also learnt a lesson and I doubt I will buy anything more from a small software house.

I really don't like the new layout. When I first tried OmniGraffle 3 I instantly understood the app. Very intuitive. The same cannot be said with version 4. The new tools layout puzzled me for a long time until I quit the app. I will not upgrade! Sadly! Omnigraffle 3 was perfect, why this big change?!

I recommend everybody this product. the best feature of it is the easiness and the availability for Mac users. Comparing with other products for Mac, like ConceptDraw, this product is easier in usage and it's not so complicated. Although advanced user would probably look for something with advanced features like ConceptDraw V.

I am a network designer and I am amazed at how good this product is. After struggling with and cursing at Visio for years, Omnigraffle is refreshing. The fact that it can use Visio XML format is great. Now I can export to my struggling, cursing colleagues!

Omni really have done something great with the way they handle graphics. This is simply amazing and breathtaking. If there could be a way to close lines and create a polygone with it. Have Fixed size text zones with text wrapping around pictures! Why not have an internet image lookup system for the stencil, like in appleworks?! They have made the ground-up for a user-friendly page creation application!! (Maybe apple could copy them and do something great with appleworks...

I'm a programmer, and use OmniGraffle extensively to diagram object classes. I showed my boss what I had done with little ol' OG, and he cursed that he couldn't run it. (Linux user). Download a copy, and you'll curse that you don't own it. This is a flagship for products that do precisely what they are designed to do, and do it well. For counterpoint, look at Opera Communicator 7.5, or any Microsoft product. And while you're at the moni web site, grab a copy of OmniWeb 5. You'll wonder how you ever got along without browser workspaces.

I love omnigraffle - it is possibly my favourite piece of software - inline with photoshop. It allows me to very easily create DTP or diagrams quickly that look visually very impressive, with out needing time and experience like with indesign. I use it extensive for all my electronics diagramming as the lines "connect" to objects - so when an object moves all the joining lines move with it this is also very handy for producing mind maps - and virtually everything. It is extremely mac like and intuitive and functions more like the mac OS than any other prog i know (its only made for mac). I highly recommend you giv this a try - its still functional with out registering - you are just limited to 20 items per document fantastic program - thanks

buggy, buggy, buggy I have too often problems with import and export. Some graphics yield a white page when exported, some exported jpegs have a strange border line, importing jpegs with "place picture" does not work at all. If it worked properly it would be a great piece of software, but meanwhile I regret to have bought it.

There has to be invented a new verb to describe the efforts of omnigroup. expacially omnigraffle! I never had so much pleasure in working out mind maps, flow charts, schedules and many more. sixth star for compatibility with visio, seventh star for the low price for educational institutes! it's just - omni!

What's not to like about this wonderful piece of OS X software? Beautifully executed my only grievance is that OmniOutliner is not integrated into this program. I do not like that it is a separate application.

A replacement for MacFlow under OSX was my last missing peice to keep me out of classic. OmniGraffle is very intuitive, very OSX. Great for building ER charts and network topography charts.
