I want to talk about the resource browser. And you'll see the resource browser when you open up OmniGraffle for the first time. So I'm just going to open it here from the dock. And there is our resource browser. And what the resource browser does is give you easy access to things that you frequently start with. And those would be templates, and also stencils. And we'll talk in more detail about stencils as well as templates, but briefly because you'll see this first I want you to see that there's a selection of different starting layouts. Some of them are pretty typical like, letter sized portrait, some of them use metric units, some of them are pre-designed as a template to do a certain type of work, such as software or space planning.
I'm going to go ahead and choose the letter portrait, which is I think, a good, standard way to start. And I also want to point out that you'll see this resource browser when starting the program, until you assign a default. So, if I select this, it will let me make a new diagram. And because I don't want to be constantly coming back here, I am going to go ahead and make letter portrait the default. So we'll talk more about templates and what you can do with them, but for now I just want you to know how to navigate past the resource browser, and start a new document.
