As far as I can tell, people have been asking for this since 2004, but nobody has delivered. How OmniGraffle can position itself as a serious alternative to Visio for network diagrams is beyond me when they lack even this basic function. The lightning bolt as WAN link is one of the most universal symbols of network diagrams. I've been evaluating OG as an alternative for Visio and I have given up hope based on this alone. I spent days trying to get a stupid lightning bolt on a diagram with no luck. I even copied one off an XML Visio diagram, but OG cannot manipulate it properly.
My recommendation if you need a WAN link on your network diagram: use Visio, there is a reason why it is the standard for this sort of thing and OmniGraffle is not.
