Flexible, powerful, somewhat quirky OS X native Visio alternative

OmniGraffle is marketed largely as an OS X native alternative to Visio, but it shines as a separate product in its own right, and a perfect accompaniment to Adobe CS for technical drawing. It's fine for all those Visio-ish things, org charts and information maps and whatever else, but I mostly use it for circuit diagrams and other 2-D technical drawings, and it works very well for these purposes.

Excellent Alternative to Visio for Mac Users

My go-to tool for non-trivial wireframe, laster-cut, IT architectural diagrams. This is a powerful feature rich tool and its import / export capabilities allow me to exchange work with Visio users.

OmniGraffle is marketed largely as an OS X native alternative to Visio, but it shines as a separate product in its own right, and a perfect accompaniment to Adobe CS for technical drawing. It's fine for all those Visio-ish things, org charts and information maps and whatever else, but I mostly use it for circuit diagrams and other 2-D technical drawings, and it works very well for these purposes.

Pros

Flexible units, canvas sizes, pen colors, objects, magnet positions, routing algorithms, etc.; it does pretty much anything you'd expect, and then some. The ability to specify double lines with outline and gap color is especially useful for my purposes: automotive wiring diagrams where wires often have a main color and one or two tracer colors. I also use OmniGraffle for diagramming fluid flow in fuel and cooling systems. It's great for all such symbolic diagramming.

Cons

Object libraries are a bit wanting, as are the tools for drawing custom objects (I prefer to draw custom objects in Illustrator, and import them). But that's about it.

My go-to tool for non-trivial wireframe, laster-cut, IT architectural diagrams. This is a powerful feature rich tool and its import / export capabilities allow me to exchange work with Visio users.

Pros

Professional graphics with many import / export options. Outstanding for making flow charts, org charts and architectural diagrams for IT. Also a great tool for designing laser cut templates for on-line services as the object oriented approach is dimensionally correct and the wide format options improves chances you will meet the services' file format requirements.

Cons

Some of the features take a while to master. This is not a tool that you will pick up quickly or that you would use to create a drawing for a simple business presentation.

Easy To Use After Learning Curve

Used Other for 2+ years

Pros

I use OmniGraffle Pro on my Mac desktop for engineering design documentation. The tool is generally easy to use after learning a few key combinations for editing. It is easy to center and line up objects using the very smart alignment tools. The default shapes are nice and clean and objects with curves render smoothly. There is a lot of functionality that might not be immediately obvious until you start using the tool.

Cons

I have difficulty manipulating the connection lines. The key combinations to edit a line position are not immediately obvious and I had to use outside resources to figure it out.

Pros

Oh my so many things you can do with this layers check, a good library of stencils, check solid community of users check many more checks to count

Cons

The only thing I would say on the downside of things is there are so many ways to use this product and finding the more advanced features will take a lot of mastery of use of the product.

Pros

The design capabilities of OmniGraffle Pro are excellent. Multiple layers for objects, plenty of formatting options for text and graphic objects, and easy to use and create templates, are all hallmarks of this application. It's pretty easy to build a library of art that can be re-used, and it's relatively simple to share that library across multiple users. There are also a number of already-made libraries of graphic items that can be downloaded and used. I use this tool regularly for flow charting and process mapping for professional use, as well as some design work for personal use.

Cons

It would be nice to see some connectivity features added, perhaps something like a "web part" that could return a graph from Google Charts or data from another API.
