I'm getting rather frustrated trying to something which appears rather simple: make a diagram which consists of circles connected by curved lines (if anyone out there knows what Markov chains are, this is what I'm trying to draw).

Magnet woes:
I'd like to have circles with magnets in places halfway between the 8-magnets, but when I try to place the magnets, I'm forced to place the magnets on a grid I don't understand. I have the grid shut off...

Arrow woes, copying:
Making a template custom curved arrow is truly frustrating. When drawn, all seems fine, except there is no way to drag the arrow so that it is near available anchors, and have it recognize that it should anchor in place. This means that it needs to be dragged close to the object, and then have its endpoints manually linked. This then means that it is difficult to align all the arrow perfectly.

Labels, placing:
I wish there were a numerical entry box for the placement of the labels. Sometimes I would like them at 50%, but it seems that they are always just slightly on one side or the other... especially when there is a midpoint for a line which is 50% of the way down the line.

Both, adjusting:
One of the nice things about OmniGraffle is that objects can be placed carefully by using the geometry inspector. This same care doesn't apply to magnets, midpoints, so it is really hard to place them carefully.

Am I missing something badly? I've poked around in the help and googled all the terms I could think of...

I'm using OmniGrafflePro 4.1.2.
