…Diagram styles are a feature in OmniGraffle that lets you set a style…across your entire document meaning all new…objects will automatically adhere to that style.…Let's take a look at how it works.…I've got a totally blank document open.…And I want to go up under Format > Choose Diagram Style.…As you can see, I've got a number…of pre-built styles available here, and I want to…choose the one called chart two, mostly because…it's got some nice vibrant colors to work with.…So I've applied the document style, and you'll see that nothing has happened.…
