Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Use and create templates, part of OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.

So, the default that I chose is just a letter size document in portrait…position, which is what I usually start with, so I made it my default.…You can see that a lot of these are based on the units.…So, here we have metric units, and then we have…some that a pre-made for a type of design we're doing.…In this case, setting up the right size, or in some…cases, the background for certain types of wire framing or software design.…So any of these will make a good starting point for a specific type of diagram.…
