Stencils in OmniGraffle for iPad
What stencils are natively available in the iPad version? Couldn't find a list elsewhere on the site.

Oh, good question: I'll add that to the FAQ and try to get some images posted.

Included stencils are: [LIST][*]3D - squares, rectangles, & various cube-like shapes, from an isomorphic perspective, plus a styled line to connect them appropriately.[*]Connections - styled lines & connector shapes (a lightning bolt, for example)[*]Fills - "color chits" to drag onto existing shapes and apply fills/text styling.[*]Fonts - eponymous "font chits" to use as a shortcut for adding styled text. (Drag the "Futura" object, for example, and then edit the actual text you want to appear in that font face.)[*]Shapes - 15 different 2D polygons, in both shadowed and un-shadowed variants.[*]Software - the "Flowchart", "UML - General", "Entity Relationship", and "Garret IA" stencils from OmniGraffle for Mac.[*]Variables - same variable options an OmniGraffle for Mac; looks like "X position" and "Y position" are the only ones not there from the Mac version.[/LIST]
Keep in mind that there are tons of free stencils available on Graffletopia, which should also work in the iPad app.

An image gallery of the built-in stencils has been added to the main OmniGraffle for iPad page. You can view the images in the "Stencils" section [URL=""]here[/URL].

Is it possible to create your own stencils from artwork on the iPad?

You can't create stencils on the iPad as of the initial release, however this is a feature we wish to add in a future update.
