Thank you for these screencasts. I have used OmniGraffle Pro for years. It is a powerful and flexible graphics program, particularly with the auto layout of diagrams. However, its price has increased far more than its features, and in my opinion put it beyond the reach of non-commercial users. This is such as shame as OmniGraffle is a great app, but there are affordable alternatives that would meet basic diagraming needs.

Hi Ian - thanks for the comment. I have to agree with the pricing/features, it's certainly at the far end of the spectrum we are used to paying for apps. I don't think it's suitable for 'light-touch' users however those looking for a viable Visio alternative for Mac that will use more than 50% of the feature-set, I think it still represents value - but you've got to use it in-depth.
