Comments from some of those who selected OmniGraffle as one of their top tools

“Pretty much allows me to do anything needed for diagram design/layout. Fantastic support and continuous improvement are key to continued use.” One of the lead developers for ISO 10303, USA, 2020

“Besides writing, two ways I sort out my understandings are to diagram and to outline. I use OmniGraffle as a general purpose diagramming tool because, well, it largely works the way I want to think about it. Diagrams, mind maps, even recently as sort of posterboard. And I use OmniOutlinerto do, well, outlines. Another way to map out structures. I’d use a less costly tool, but…the columns feature is really helpful for annotation. Both, unfortunately, are Mac only (and sadly quite dear).” Clark Quinn, USA, 2020
