New website for stencils! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm proud to announce I've just launched Graffletopia, a website that makes it easy to share OmniGraffle stencils.

Stencils are a cool part of OmniGraffle, but the list on the 'Extras' page always seemed a bit buried. Hopefully, by having a separate site for sharing stencils, it will be easier to find and share cool stencils.

Unfortunately too many stencils have broken links - for example, I open and click on the Download link to download stencil, but new page opens ( with the error message:

Not Found

The requested URL /ftp/pub/software/MacOSX/Extras/OmniGraffle/MindMap.dmg was not found on this server.

Apache/1.3.33 Server at Port 80
The same for Apple logo stencils ( and Gardening stencils (, and many more.

And so for almost every stencil I want to download...

Thanks for catching that bug, Guntis.

For some reason, links to files or pages on must have a www subdomain. When I tested these links earlier, everything seemed to work ok, but I guess it wasn't.

Anyway, it's all fixed now... so feel free to download as much as you want! :)

You're not havng a good week, now just gives a Rails application error.
Arrrgh... so annoying.

Ruby on Rails is awesome, but hosting a Rails app can be tricky. Anyways, I apologize for the technical difficulties.

The site is back up now.
Hey, don't forget the rest of my maps... :)

Very bottom of the OG extras page...
Ah ha... I just discovered that you can add them yourself! Very nice. I'll upload them tomorrow once I get some screenshots.
Does anyone know how to make an alias that is relative (and that *stays* relative across systems)?

I'd like to include an alias to the OmniGraffle stencil folder on the disk images I am making for my maps. However, I don't want a reference to my hard drive (i.e. keep $HOME or ~ at the beginning so it will point to the user directory of whoever opens it...)

I've tried

> ln -s ~/Library/Application Support/OmniGraffle/Stencils


> ln -s $HOME/Library/Application Support/OmniGraffle/Stencils

Both make an alias, but it resolves both $HOME and ~ (i.e. the alias is a full path to MY OG folder even when on a different account or user).
1. Select desired folder in Home Directory
2. Command-L
3. There is no step 3

I've tested it across different machines and user accounts, it should point to ~/Library/Application Support/OmniGraffle/Stencils/ in a dynamic fashion.
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
Damn old-school UNIX. :)
