Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a custom stencil, part of OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.
…We've been working with stencils, and I think you can see their power,…but I want to point out that we're not stuck with the pre-built pencils.…We can create our own stencils, adapt…existing stencils, and also search online for stencils.…Let's look at customizing one first.…I'm going to use my furniture stencil again.…I find this to be a good one to play with,…but the techniques I'm doing, you could do on any stencil.…I want to use this little actions gear and you see this…gives me some choices about editing, and I want to edit a copy.…
That's going to duplicate the furniture stencil, and…then allow me to edit on the duplicate.…As you can see, the stencil is now loaded in the canvas, and this is the copy.…I'm going to close the side bar to have a little more space to move.…And for this scenario, I'm just going to start creating…some colors on these to have a little more visual interest.…We can go with a purple color and maybe adjust some of the opacities, make…a little bit of an array here, and you can adjust these as much as you want.…
