Is there any way to set zoom across multiple canvases?
I'm on OG5, but this was a problem for me in OG4 too.

While it's usually good that zoom settings are per-canvas rather per-document, I also often want to change the zoom settings for all pages. E.g. when I want to flip through the document to quality-check and want all pages to Fit In Window.

Is there any way to do this?

If you need a guaranteed response to a question, you'll want to use the Help menu to shoot an email to the support ninjas. I browse the forums fairly frequently, but I don't know OmniGraffle as well as I do some of the other products.

That said, it looks like the canvases sidebar in OmniGraffle 5 supports multiple selection. Hold down the command key to select several canvases (or hit command-a when one is selected to select all of them) and the zoom popup will affect them.

Thanks for the response, Brian. I did try that, but unfortunately, it doesn't work.

If I select more than one canvas, and then use View: Zoom and select any zoom setting, it only affects the canvas I'm looking at. Same with the magnifying glass tool.

Am I out of luck, then?

For the foreseeable future, this won't be possible -- I'd encourage you to send feedback to the support team so we can add your voice to the choir on this feature, the more "votes" for a feature, the more likely we'll implement it.

See the last posting in this thread
for an Applescript that sets the zoom for all canvases in a document.
