Can't move 3rd party stencils to stencil library subfolder Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I've downloaded some 3rd party stencils from Graffletopia and I'd like to put them in a subfolder of the folder where OG appears to keep all its stencils, namely ~/Library/Application Support/OmniGraffle/Stencils. I opened a terminal window, went to the aforementioned Stencils folder and created a subfolder by hand (mkdir subfolder_name). I see the new subfolder in OG's Stencils window but OG won't allow me to drag-and-drop some of these new stencils into the subfolder. I've also noticed that these stencils don't appear when I do an "ls -la" in the terminal window. The only stencil that I could drop into the new subfolder was one that *did* appear in my terminal window. What's going on here? How can I move all my downloaded stencils into subfolders I create? Thanks.

BTW, I'm using OG 5.3.6 and OS X 10.6.8.
It doesn't keep the stencils in that folder any longer. The new location is at ~/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniGraffle/Stencils.

Also, I don't believe the stencil folders are actual file system folders. You can make new folders in your stencil list by selecting New Favorite Stencil Folder from the gear menu in the stencil window, and just drag your new stencils in there after installing by double-clicking.
