I’ve been experiencing issues with Omnigraffle Pro on my mac for about 6 months. It seems to happen on a couple of different interactions but I can’t always define the steps to reproduce making it really hard to report as a bug/issue.
This happens on both my laptop keyboard and my external Logitech bluetooth keyboard.
I frequently use the keyboard shortcut “Cmd + arrow” to move between elements and this issues only happens on text; sometimes I’m not sure what buttons I pressed (accidental button taps when typing too fast) but the focus is suddenly somewhere else and my text block is gone.
If I try “Ctrl + Z” to undo, there is no memory of the steps, it jumps back in history as if that text block or the text inside it never existed.
I was able to replicate one sequence when I was copying text from outside of OG into multiple text boxes using keyboard shortcuts for almost every step:
Imagine you have a vertical list of 20 square shapes, 1pt line, no fill and you want each of them to have different labels that are currently in text format in a document outside OG and you want to avoid retyping each one.
- Cmd + shift or Alt + Shift) to highlight text in word/excel etc
- Cmd + C (copy)
- Cmd + Tab (toggle to OG)
- (With text box in focus) Enter (to make text in box editable)
- Cmd + V (paste) or Cmd + Alt + Shift + V (paste and match style)
- Cmd + arrow down (move to next text box below)
At this point the text that I have just pasted above will be cleared and I can’t get it back, it’s like the action never happened.
I’ve tried uninstalling my bluetooth keyboard but today I’m on the laptop and it’s happened again.
I know it might sound minor but I’ve been using OG for over 10 years now for all my wireframes, annotations & build specs so it’s becoming a big issue when I’m refining copy for an hour and then it gets deleted.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
