OmniGraffle for Mac 7.17

July 15, 2020

Requires macOS 10.14

Version 7.17

  • Personal Subscriptions — OmniGraffle now has support for (optional) subscriptions! Subscriptions give you the latest version of the app, enabling every feature on every platform (including Pro features)—with a lower cost up front and predictable spending in the future. (If you prefer the traditional licensing model, that option also remains available: traditional licenses are investments which cost more up front, but save money in the long run.)
  • Unified Trials — We’re unifying our trials to use a single, simple approach: you sign up for a trial, it lasts for two weeks, and then it ends without charging you.
  • Images — Fixed a bug that caused the rendering of some images on the canvas to fail when the document is opened.
  • SVG Import — Fixed multiple SVG importing bugs.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash that could occur when undoing the deletion of objects with Auto layout active.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash that would most commonly occur when duplicating a file.

OmniGraffle for Mac 7.16

June 3, 2020

Requires macOS 10.14

Version 7.16

OmniGraffle 7.16 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 Mac 7.16 and OmniGraffle for iOS 3.14 will not be able to read this format.

    • Existing documents saved in legacy formats will have the option to upgrade or continue saving in the legacy format.
    • Legacy documents will prompt once per session to upgrade after the first edit.
    • Documents can be switched to the package format in situations where it is preferred. This can be done via File > Change File Type.
    • The Document > Format inspector has been removed.
    • Legacy formats are available under the OmniGraffle export format options.
    • All new documents will be created in the new format regardless of what the template uses.
  • Saving — The UI is unblocked sooner after a save is initiated to reduce interruptions to your work. Saving will continue in the background.
  • UI — The Style Well previews for tools have a background and border to provide visual consistency regardless of the light or dark theme appearance.
  • UI — The Line Tool style preview shows a curved line instead of straight when set to the Curved line type.
  • Exporting — New documents will have the OmniGraffle document format option selected by default instead of the stencil format.
  • Exporting — All layers are exported when using Flexible Canvas Mode with objects positioned outside the canvas bounds.
  • Stencils — Fixed a bug that could cause stencils which used legacy line routing to trigger a repeating error about autosave failing.
  • Line Routing — Fixed a bug with lines on shared layers that could cause lines to save with the wrong line routing. Affected files will not fix themselves automatically; modifying a line point will correct the issue and the line will save correctly going forward.
  • Text Positioning — Toggling the Wrap to Shape option can be undone.
  • Lines — When changing the text of an object set to Fit shape to text, any connected lines will automatically adjust.
  • Undo — Undo correctly positions objects that have been repositioned using the Geometry inspector.
  • SVG Import — Fixed a bug importing lines that have zero dimension.
  • Visio Import (PRO) — Fixed a bug causing the prompt about the paper size being too small for the margins to trigger more often than it should.
  • Visio Import (PRO) — Fixed a couple importing bugs that prevented some files from importing.
  • Shared Layers (PRO) — Objects on shared layers respect custom origins so they accurately report their location and adjust correctly to changes in position.
  • Keychain Access — If you have signed into an Omni Account in a different Omni app, you will no longer be prompted to unlock the keychain entry for “Omni Account”.
