  • Stability — Fixed a crash when dragging a Xcode folder over an OmniGraffle window.
  • Stability — Possible fixed a crash when opening a document with collapsed inspectors in some configurations. We were never able to reproduce this ourselves, so we’ll be on the lookout for more reports.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash when closing a document while a text field in the inspector was active.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash when importing an OmniOutliner file with the note column mapped to the resulting shape’s note.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash when opening the resource browser and showing previews of multiple documents or stencils using plastic fill, or other GPU-supported styles.
  • Performance — Fixed a performance issue related to Shared Layers and text tags that could resize.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash involving a delayed inspector update after dragging a shape.
  • Visio — Fixed an array bound error when opening certain Visio files.

OmniGraffle for Mac 6.1.3

February 3, 2015

Requires OS X 10.10

OmniGraffle 6.1.3 is a minor update focused on stability.

  • Stability — Fixed a crash related to changing screens and closing windows.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash encountered when updating the style tray in a background thread while moving lots of shapes at once using the arrow keys.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash encountered when tabbing through tables with recently-deleted text.
  • Stability — Fixed a data corruption bug related to changing layers or canvases with graphics that have layer or canvas actions.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash deleting multiple shared layers at once.
  • Stability — Fixed a bug where deleting a layer with actions on other layers that reference that layer can cause the document to load incorrectly.
  • Help Menu — Searching the Help menu would sometimes return results from older versions of OmniGraffle if they were still installed on the Mac, even though those help results didn’t apply. Searching the Help menu for something that didn’t exist and then clicking on “No results found” would also cause a crash. Both of these issues have been fixed.
  • Option-Drag — Fixed a bug where Option-dragging a shape to duplicate it would always place it in the wrong location when the canvas was zoomed or when rulers were visible.
