Visio stencils appearing in 'File -> Open Recent'
1 Attachment(s)
I have imported several Visio .vss stencils. This works fine, however if I start OmniGraffle and try to open a recent file, the list of recent files is clogged by all the visio stencils I used in the last session. I don't want to see these files in the Open Recent menu.

This is a side effect of OmniGraffle opening the Visio stencils even if they are installed in Application Support. I'll file a bug against this, however in the meantime if you edit said stencils and save them as OmniGraffle stencils this problem should go away.

I'll try that. Thanks Joel.

This does only work for visio stencils without the metafile enhancement (graphics). If I try to save these stencils in OG the graphic content gets lost.

oblomow, is this using OmniGraffle Professional 5.1? It should have support for the EMF format.

Yes OG Pro 5.1 beta 1
Opening the vss stencils and using them works great. But editing the 'copy of the stencil' and saving it make it lose the graphic data.

this is the file: [url][/url]

Looks like it's working fine and dandy in today's alpha build, keep an eye peeled for the beta 2 release of OmniGraffle 5.1, should be happening very soon.

Great. I'll raise a glass to you and the other fine people at Omi. (Marius 2004 reserva btw..)

And solved in 5.1 beta 2. Thanks!
