OmniGraffle and OmniGraffle Professional 5.3 are now available Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OmniGraffle and OmniGraffle Professional 5.3 are major updates which add Mac OS X v10.7 features and compatibility, better compatibility with the iPad version, new optional line behavior, the Konigi wireframes stencil as well as important bug fixes and stability improvements.

New Features
  • Mac OS X v10.7 Features and Compatibility - OmniGraffle is ready for Lion, if you are running Mac OS X 10.7 you'll be able to take advantage of the new navigation gestures, automatic document saving and versioning, as well as full screen mode.
  • New Line Behavior - We've modified how lines appear when they are connecting to shapes to more appropriately show their actual endpoints at the center of the shape, as well as making the Curvy line type much more attractive visually and adding much more powerful control handles for the Orthogonal line type. If you would like to enable the new line behavior works, paste the following in Terminal:
    • "defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniGrafflePro UseOldBezierPathLayout NO" (if you are running OmniGraffle Professional, minus the quotes)
    • "defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniGraffle UseOldBezierPathLayout NO" (if you are running the Standard version of OmniGraffle, minus the quotes)
    • "defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniGrafflePro.MacAppStore UseOldBezierPathLayout NO" (if you are running OmniGraffle Professional purchased in the Mac App Store, minus the quotes)
    • "defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniGraffle.MacAppStore UseOldBezierPathLayout NO" (if you are running the Standard version of OmniGraffle purchased in the Mac App Store, minus the quotes)
  • iPad Compatibility - Certain artistic features available on OmniGraffle for iPad (such as open freehand shapes) now display properly on the desktop.
  • Paste in Place has been added as a dedicated control in the Edit Menu.
  • The Konigi wireframe stencils are now bundled by default.
  • The shared support folder for custom OmniGraffle stencils, diagram styles, templates, and shapes has moved to $HOME/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniGraffle to conform with Mac App Store guidelines.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a particularly nasty crash that could occur when certain ColorSync Profiles were installed.
  • Addressed an infinite loop crash when using automatic layout.
  • Fixed a hang while applying a change in orientation when using orthogonal lines.
  • Smart Guides should now no longer interfere with grid snapping and should never prevent snapping to grid pixel boundaries, regardless of zoom level.
  • Dragging an image from a web browser should now drag the image, not the URL for the image.
  • Fixed a bug where the Shift and Caps Lock could interfere with drawing tools hotkeys.
  • Exporting a multi-canvas document to PDF should now take unit scale into account.
  • OmniGraffle now offers PDF and PNG on the pasteboard before PICT and TIFF.
  • Fixed a bug where pasting an object could errantly duplicate a canvas.
  • Avoided an error when exporting an entire document to HTML if there were colons in any canvas names.
  • OmniGraffle now handles font transparency to and from the iPad.
  • Fixed some image tiling issues and other image related bugs in flipped tables.
  • The Japanese version of the Common -> Shapes stencil should now include smart arc and wedge shapes.
  • Multi-Touch gestures for trackpad and other input devices are now disabled by default.
  • Fixed a bug where the Mac App Store version was not opening LinkBack PDFs from newly created files.
  • The Magdalen Islands are now part of Quebec, and not Nova Scotia.

You can check for updates within the application itself (unless you've purchased via the Mac App Store, in which case you should update there), or head to our Downloads Page to get the new release.
