- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Jason Osder. Welcome to OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training. OmniGraffle is a diagramming program that gives you a wide range of tools to present your ideas visually. We'll start by using objects like lines and shapes to create information-rich diagrams. I'll teach you how to use stencils, which are pre made sets of graphics, that will help you quickly make a wide range of diagrams. We'll learn to use canvases and layers to organize larger documents into understandable parts.

And we'll use the pen tool to make custom shapes. I'll even show you some highlights from the Pro version of the software. We'll be covering all of these features, plus lots of tips for using OmniGraffle in diverse practical situations. Now, let's get started with OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.
