OmniGraffle's stencils can elevate the aesthetics appeals of your charts, diagrams and other graphics. In OmniGraffle, stencils are simply prefabricated objects. They come in an assortment of shapes and sizes, and can range from simple shapes and textures to complex logos and emblems. But if you can't find the right stencil for your project, you have two options for importing more stencils into OmniGraffle. As of June 2011, OmniGraffle is only available for Macintosh Operating Systems and the Apple mobile operating system.
