Stencils in OmniGraffle for iPad Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
What stencils are natively available in the iPad version? Couldn't find a list elsewhere on the site.

Oh, good question: I'll add that to the FAQ and try to get some images posted.

Included stencils are:
  • 3D - squares, rectangles, & various cube-like shapes, from an isomorphic perspective, plus a styled line to connect them appropriately.
  • Connections - styled lines & connector shapes (a lightning bolt, for example)
  • Fills - "color chits" to drag onto existing shapes and apply fills/text styling.
  • Fonts - eponymous "font chits" to use as a shortcut for adding styled text. (Drag the "Futura" object, for example, and then edit the actual text you want to appear in that font face.)
  • Shapes - 15 different 2D polygons, in both shadowed and un-shadowed variants.
  • Software - the "Flowchart", "UML - General", "Entity Relationship", and "Garret IA" stencils from OmniGraffle for Mac.
  • Variables - same variable options an OmniGraffle for Mac; looks like "X position" and "Y position" are the only ones not there from the Mac version.

Keep in mind that there are tons of free stencils available on Graffletopia, which should also work in the iPad app.
An image gallery of the built-in stencils has been added to the main OmniGraffle for iPad page. You can view the images in the "Stencils" section here.
Is it possible to create your own stencils from artwork on the iPad?
You can't create stencils on the iPad as of the initial release, however this is a feature we wish to add in a future update.
