Pros: OmniGraffle is very easy to use. It allows a user to create lucid charts that capture the essence of the logic of a process. I particularly like the fact that arcs drawn from one object to another are drawn such that they virtually pass through the center of an object so that arrowheads don't pile up on each other. One of the best features of OmniGraffle is that it allows a user to create layers that can be turned off and on to reveal successive layers when talking through the build-up of a process map.

Cons: OmniGraffle is packed with so many features that it can be difficult sometimes to figure out how to use those features in a chart as the supporting documentation is a little thin.

Overall: Easily clarify complex thought processes.

Flexible, powerful, somewhat quirky OS X native Visio alternative

Comments: 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.

Comments: After using Microsoft Visio for years, it was not easy to get going with a similar diagramming app in Mac. However we found OmniGraffle the best in its class with an intuitive user interface and capability to import / export multiple formats. You will find it very easy to create or import your own stencils and start creating professional looking diagrams instantly.

Pros: - Easy to use - Intuitive (yet powerful) user interface - Ability to create custom stencils easily

Cons: - Limited support for complex SVG files - Limited support for visio documents and stencils - Limited set of built-in stencils
