Presentation mode in Omnigraffle is useful for sharing your user experience design documents. Presentation mode makes Omnigraffle operate somewhat like Keynote or Powerpoint. Advance through canvases with the space bar. Individual items can be highlighted. The look of these highlights, and if they are triggered by a rollover or a click can be controlled in the preferences.
- [Voiceover] We've talked quite a bit about how…UX Design work is really about presentation,…and about communicating ideas to people.…And often, that means passing around these documents…or putting them on a screen and just talking through them…or asking questions and then using the feedback you get…to make these edits.…OmniGraffle itself does have a presentation mode,…and that's what I want to talk about here.…You see I have my multi-page, multi-canvas…wire frame that we've already completed here.…And what I want to do is just take us…right into presentation mode to show you how it works.…
So under view, you have start presentation.…As you can see, things go to full screen,…and as I mouse over things they get highlighted.…So what I can do is say and possibly we…might want to turn off the notes,…they seem a little distracting in this context.…But I could basically be replacing them…as I talk through it in a presentation.…I go here and say this space will be…used for a revolving photo,…and we'll have a different photo every month…
Join Jason Osder as he demonstrates how to use OmniGraffle 6. He shows you how to use basic features, like adding lines, shapes, and text, to create diagrams of page layouts, or wireframes, in addition to advanced features, like working with stencils and templates. He lets you know when he is showing a pro-version feature, like presentation mode and subgraphs, so you can adjust accordingly. Along the way, you'll learn how to improve your documentation by eliminating unnecessary elements to help readers visualize all of a site on one page. As an object-based diagramming program, OmniGraffle has features for executing UX and IA documents. Creating other documents, like use case scenarios, content maps, and models, is also covered.
