Program of the Week: OmniGraffle

Highly recommended:

The Omni Group - Applications - OmniGraffle: Visualize and communicate graphically - even if you can't draw. A well-designed chart or diagram communicates information far better than words. A graphical drawing is incredibly powerful when you need a clear understanding of how tasks, activities, and processes are carried out. Diagrams are basic to the way people think, and we create them all the time without even realizing it. Whatever your profession or interests, chances are you’ve occasionally sketched out some ideas on a piece of graph paper or the back of a napkin. OmniGraffle is the tool to help you organize your thoughts visually, document them beautifully, and communicate them to the world.

With OmniGraffle, it's as easy as dragging and dropping to create flow charts, org charts, network diagrams, family trees, project processes, office layouts - anything you can think of that can be represented by symbols and lines. OmniGraffle knows what makes a diagram different from a drawing, so it knows how to help you make superior documents quickly: it keeps lines connected to shapes even when they're moved, it provides palettes full of objects for you to drag and drop, and it can magically organize diagrams with just one click...
