Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Replicate shapes, part of OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.
…As with a lot of software, as you advance with OmniGraffle, a lot of the…improvement doesn't have to do with doing more…things, so much as doing them more efficiently.…I want to look at a lot of methods to gain efficiency in…OmniGraffle, and the first has to do with replicating shapes on the canvas.…It goes without saying in any type of…digital production, that once you've created one thing.…If you can duplicate it rather than doing…the work again, that's going to be an advantage.…It is also not going to be a…surprise that many standard features work here in OmniGraffle.…
So if I select the presentations page one option I have is to copy or use Cmd+c.…And then paste, or Cmd+v.…So that's going to be pretty standard, and everyone's going to be used to that.…The other thing that's pretty standard is holding…Option while you drag, to force a duplicate.…Again, that's pretty typical for computing, and…you may be used to it already.…Let's get rid of those because I want to…show you one more way that's unique to OmniGraffle.…
