What is a GRAFFLE file?
A GRAFFLE file is a drawing created by The Omni Group OmniGraffle, a macOS application used to design diagrams, charts, and other graphics. It stores one or more pages that may include text, images, drawn objects, styles, and page layout information. GRAFFLE files are used for saving and printing flow charts, sketches, network diagrams, and other drawings.
OmniGraffle is similar to Microsoft Visio but is available for macOS instead of Windows. Professionals who need to organize and communicate complex ideas through diagrams are the primary users of the software.
When saving a diagram with OmniGraffle, the app creates a GRAFFLE file to store its contents. You can create a GRAFFLE file with OmniGraffle by selecting File → Save or Save As.... After saving the file, you can close it and re-open it at a later time to continue modifying your drawing.
