Auto-Layout - advanced and undocumented features Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
The OmniGraffle documentation is curiously modest about the full creative potential of Auto-layout, with its innovative and ground-breaking auto-skew and auto-encrypt features.

Instructions for use are summarized, with suggested areas of application, in this handy sheet:

Auto-skew Capture the atmosphere of an organisation which has lost a little of its vigour and direction ...

Auto-encrypt Need to combine disclosure with discretion ? Protect the details of your lines of report ...

Combined effects No need to choose between discreet encryption and that subtle impression of skewed disorganisation ...

More advanced effects that didn't make it into the user manual ...

Auto-arachnid - add knee-joints to your spider diagrams.

Automatic layout adds knee joints to bezier connectors in larger sibling ranges. For additional joints, reduce rank separation and increase object separation

(The 'text flees arachnid advance' effect is achieved with a combined script and zoom technique)
