For Immediate Release

Mac OS X Developers The Omni Group Increase OmniGraffle Diagramming Capability

Maps, Periodic Table Palettes Added to OmniGraffle

Seattle, Washington — May 28, 2002 — The Omni Group, developers of Mac OS
X applications OmniWeb, OmniOutliner, and OmniGraffle, announce new
diagramming palettes available for OmniGraffle 2.0. OmniGraffle is a
conceptual drawing tool designed to help business, technical and consumer
users organize ideas and data.

Now available to OmniGraffle users are the Periodic Table and Maps
palettes. The Periodic Table object palette contains elements 1 through
118, each with identifying colors. Each element in the table has a magnet
count equivalent to its valence so you can easily create bonds between
elements. The Maps palette contains road signs, landmarks, and other
symbols useful for producing clear, easy to read maps.

OmniGraffle palettes are available free of charge from the Omni website:

OmniGraffle helps users draw out anything that can be represented by
symbols and lines: flow charts, org charts, network diagrams, family trees,
project processes, office layouts, and much more. OmniGraffle can also be
used for nontraditional diagramming purposes like charting storylines or
planning events. With efficient tools like ‘smart’ shape magnets and
detailed control palettes, OmniGraffle provides a comprehensive feature set
with a remarkably easy to use interface.
