One of the wonderful things about OmniGraffle is that it’s incredibly easy to build stencils: you just take any content that you might put in a normal document, create a new stencil document, and add that content to it.
It’s also very easy to download stencils from the Internet: you can go to a website and download a stencil (like Twitter Bootstrap 3.0 from Viget), open that stencil in OmniGraffle and you’re good to go.
But you could only download those stencils if you knew where to find them, and unfortunately they’re scattered across the web.
Stenciltown makes it easy to find free OmniGraffle stencils which have been shared by the community. You can browse and search the collection through its web interface, and once you’ve found a stencil you’d like to use it’s as easy as ever to download and use.
You can also search Stenciltown from within OmniGraffle itself, both on Mac and iPad:
We think being able to search for community stencils within the app is important; it lets people who are using the app find what they’re looking for right away (and it helps new customers find stencils even when they haven’t yet heard of Stenciltown).
If you have a stencil you’d like to share with the rest of the OmniGraffle community, you’ll find the option to “Submit a Stencil” at the top of the page. You’ll need to provide the stencil file, a preview image, and some basic details about the stencil. After a short review process, your stencil will become freely available to all of the OmniGraffle community, both in OmniGraffle itself and through the Stenciltown website.
We look forward to seeing you in Stenciltown!
