OmniGraffle 5 general issues Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Sorry for the trouble, CPG - it'll probably be easiest for us to help if you send email to or give us a call at 800.315.6664.

(Since the printer drivers that are being used are have a pretty strong effect on issues like this, it's often difficult to troubleshoot something like this via forum post; we generally need to get screenshots of Page Setup and the print panel, or ask you to read stuff off to us if we're on the phone.)
Thanks for your sharing.

And there's no way to react to someone who says, "Hey, on page 56, change...," or "take a look at page 43..."
Is there anything new on this? Canvas numbers are essential on any deck with more than a handful of pages.
It's not about printing!

It's about quickly finding canvas 63 in a 100 page deck when you're on the phone with a client! This is one of those nagging frustrations that prevent Omnigraffle from being a fully professional application.

So, you just want a way to quickly flip to canvas N? Are you willing to run an Applescript?

tell application "OmniGraffle Professional 5"
	tell front document
		set Targetstr to (text returned of (display dialog "Desired canvas? " default answer "" buttons {"OK"} default button 1))
			set MyCanvas to first canvas of (every canvas whose name contains Targetstr)
		on error
			display alert "No such canvas:" & Targetstr
		end try
	end tell
	set canvas of front window to MyCanvas
end tell
There's a nice FAQ at
It is written for OmniFocus, but just read OmniGraffle where it says OmniFocus and you'll be fine.
