Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Grouping and locking objects, part of OmniGraffle 5: Creating Web Sitemaps and Wireframes.
What do you do when your sitemap or your wireframe starts to have so many…elements that it's hard to keep them organized and hard to work on one part…without disturbing another part of the diagram?…This is where grouping and locking objects comes in really handy, and that's…what this movie is all about.…Here I have a classic opportunity for grouping and locking.…I have built a browser window, kind of generic-looking, to be the background for…my wireframe, and now I want to start building on top of it, but this is really…just a collection of shapes itself.…
So if I were to start working on top here and dragging and moving things,…I'd constantly be moving these shapes apart from each other and breaking my background.…I am going to use Undo;…Command+Z to correct these obvious mistakes.…What I need to do is first group this, so it acts like one object, even though…it's made up of separate shapes.…I am going to select everything currently on the canvas, and I am going to do…that by dragging a big lasso, or marquee, around the whole thing.…
