Drawing lines reorganizes my layout? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm doing a simple diagram with servers arranged on the page. When I connect to objects with a line, when I release the mouse to connect the two objects, Omnigraffle 5 rearranges the entire page automatically, typically into one straight line of objects. Everything slides around and destroys what I've been working on. Is this a new feature?
Sounds like you have automatic layout turned on. (You may have turned it on by accident, or by choosing a document template that has it on by default.)

To turn off auto-layout, go to the Canvas : Diagram Layout inspector and uncheck the "Automatic layout" checkbox.

That was it, thanks. Was getting tired of rearranging :D
