The Omni Group — the developers of such Mac OS X applications OmniWeb, OmniOutliner, and OmniGraffle — have new diagramming palettes available for OmniGraffle 2.0, a diagramming and charting application.
OmniGraffle can now take advantage of 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 to simplify the creation of bonds between elements. The Maps palette contains road signs, landmarks and other symbols that can be used to produce maps.
The palettes are available free from the Omni Web site. OmniGraffle 2.0 can be downloaded in a free trial version that has some limited functionality. Registration is US$59.95. The 2.0 upgrade is free to registered users of OmniGraffle 1.0, including users who have purchased a PowerBook or Power Mac since January and have OmniGraffle 1.0 already installed on their machines.
