OmniGraffle for iOS 3.15

September 9, 2020

Requires iOS 13

Version 3.15

  • Unified Trials — We’ve unified trials in OmniGraffle 3.15 to use a single, simple approach: you sign up for a trial, it lasts for two weeks, and then it ends without charging you.
  • Omni Automation [PRO] — OmniGraffle now recognizes simple plug-ins that use the .omnigrafflejs file extension.
  • SVG — SVG files can be directly imported to OmniGraffle as a new document instead of needing to be pasted or drag & dropped in.
  • File Formats — When changing file format types, a copy of the original is placed in the Trash as a recovery backup.
  • Permissions — When running a beta OS, OmniGraffle will only ask for local network permissions when an OmniPresence account is configured. This access is used for notifying OmniGraffle on other iOS & iPadOS devices and OmniPresence on the Mac when there are changes to download.

OmniGraffle for iOS 3.14.1

July 1, 2020

Requires iOS 13

Version 3.14.1

  • File Formats — When opening an OmniGraffle file saved in a legacy format, a prompt will appear with the options to:
    • Upgrade to the new format released in 3.14.
    • Open the file and continue using the legacy format.
    • Cancel opening the file.
  • File Formats — Added an option to the Share menu for converting the currently opened file between the new single file format and package format.

OmniGraffle for iOS 3.14

June 3, 2020

Requires iOS 13

Version 3.14

OmniGraffle 3.14 improves reliability when OmniGraffle documents are synced with third party providers. This release introduces a new file type that avoids compatibility issues with certain sync platforms, such as Dropbox, while maintaining great performance.

  • File Formats — A new default single file format has been added. This is a zipped version of the pre-existing file package format which has significant performance advantages over the old single file format that encoded images as XML data. This combines most of the benefits of the pre-existing formats in a way that is compatible with file syncing services like Dropbox. Versions prior to OmniGraffle for iOS 3.14 and OmniGraffle for Mac 7.16 will not be able to read this format.

    • All new documents will be created in the new format regardless of what the template uses.
    • A legacy format export option has been added.
  • Reference Manual — The localized reference manuals have been updated for changes prior to this release.
  • Visio Import (PRO) — Fixed a couple importing bugs that prevented some files from importing.
  • SVG Import — Fixed a bug importing lines that have zero dimension.

OmniGraffle for iOS 3.13

April 8, 2020

Requires iOS 13

Version 3.13

OmniGraffle 3.13 is focused on improving compatibility with Visio.

  • Visio Export (Pro) — Added support for top/bottom text margins.
  • Visio Export (Pro) — PANOSE data is exported when available. This helps decide what font is used for substiution when necessary.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Added RelQuadBezTo support for .vssx files which improves Visio stencil compatibility.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Fixed cases of text objects not being created large enough to fit the text.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Documents previously triggering the Incorrect Block error are able to be imported.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Unexpected characters in unsupported attributes were causing some files to fail to import. Those attributes are now ignored.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Fixed a bug causing some EMF images in vsdx files to have components flying off into space.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — When a Visio file type is associated with an UTI OmniGraffle doesn’t expect, check the file extension instead to determine if the file can be imported. This should fix compatibility problems when other applications are installed that use Visio file types.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Text placed inside groups is imported.
  • Visio Import (Pro) — Fixed a crash when importing .vss files containing EMF images.
  • Visio Export (Pro) — Fixed multiple bugs with exporting images. Images are now exported to PNG format unless already in BMP, WMF, or EMF. This results in significantly smaller file sizes than previously.
  • Visio Export (Pro) — Corrected export of text alignment and offsets values.
  • Visio Export (Pro) — Override Visio’s auto-routing in the exported file so that lines retain their path set in OmniGraffle. This will cause some files to appear with connection lines on top of objects. Adjusting any object should fix that.
  • Visio Export (Pro) — Objects are positioned on the canvas when the canvas is using a non-zero origin in OmniGraffle.
  • Visio Export (Pro) — Line labels are exported as line labels instead of separate text objects.
  • Text — When typing immediately after editing on a label begins, the text has the correct style and insertion point.
  • Text — Text set to be bottom or top aligned are positioned correctly when the shape is rotated.
  • Gestures — It is possible to initiate a zoom gesture when your two fingers do not touch the screen as the same time and one is over an object.
  • Images — When editing the mask of a scaled image, the image’s position will stay static.
  • Linked Resource Folders — Changes to the contents of linked folders are picked up immediately and files needing to be downloaded can be selected.
