Call for OmniGraffle stencil requests
(shamelessly re-posted from the blog, as we're aware that not everyone reads that particular publication)

You OmniGraffle fans probably already know about [URL=""]Graffletopia[/URL], which hosts a tons of cool stencils for your downloading pleasure. We’ve also got quite a few linked from the OmniGraffle [URL=""]extras page[/URL], and of course it’s super easy to make your own stencils by selecting New Stencil from the Stencils menu and dragging in images.

Currently we aren’t including very many ready-made stencils in the app itself, though, so we’re going to be working on adding more Omni-created stencils to Graffle’s built-in library of objects (and updating a few of the existing ones).

Here’s where you can help: what sorts of image collections would you like to see in the app? I am personally voting for a Macworld booth layout stencil (complete with $100-per-day rented trash can!), some cool photo borders, and maybe some DVD/DVR/remote icons (so when my in-laws visit we can create a foolproof graphical set of instructions to help them operate the television without accidentally resetting everything to Spanish, adding a season recording of “Deal Or No Deal?”, and turning the screen magenta), but I figure you guys might have some ideas that are even MORE useful.

Post your stencil requests in this thread, and thanks for helping us out!

I created a houseplan layout image for use in Indigo. It was rather a pain because there aren't any stencils for a house layout, such as walls, windows, doors. stairs, built-in appliances, light fixtures, etc.

I found some stencils that sorta had some furniture, bits and pieces here and there. So I had to draw walls by hand using rectangles. Total pain.

Not the type of things a pro would use for designing houses with dimensions, just some basic stuff to draw a basic houseplan layout.

Might want to try [URL=""]this one[/URL] at Graffletopia.

Is this new? I couldn't find anything like that back when I needed it. I see it only has 726 downloads, so it must be pretty recent.

Yeah, it got put it together and uploaded very recently.

How about a better concept map (not mind map) stencil.

Decision Tree stencil?
How about a stencil for drawing decision trees? (The shapes in the basic set are a good start, but the connectors and attachment points don't quite work)

Need Office furniture stencils
Found a few "home office" stenciles. Would be great to have a bullet desk, bowfront desk, credenza, etc some basics found in the corporate furniture world. Love the tool ready to roll with it.

I see the new v.5 is not loaded with stencils yet. I miss the office-centric stencils. Where can I get the old "Paper Stack" I had in v.3? An open 3-ring binder would be good. Anyhow, there is my straight-down-the-road request: Lotsa office stencils.

I need stencils for HP servers (in 3D and rack). Cisco rack stuff is also needed...
