I am on a mac on the latest version, and I have the paid version on OnmiGraffle. Every time I create a new item It is named the same thing I named One other Item in another project. is there a way to stop this annoying naming behavior? Why is it happening?
found the answer
Here is how to fix this if you have the Pro Edition of the app:
01. Select the Shape Tool (don't draw anything yet). 02. Go to the Properties > Object Data Inspector: <https://support.omnigroup.com/documentation/omnigraffle/mac/7/en/working-with-the-inspectors/#assigning-metadata-to-objects-with-the-object-data-inspector-pro> 03. Delete what is in the Name field, or enter in a new name.
Here is how to fix this if you have the Standard Edition of the app:
01. Create a new empty document. 02. Draw a shape. 03. Select the shape in the Layers (left-hand) sidebar. 04. Change the name of the shape in the Layers sidebar. 05. Select the Shape Tool (don't draw anything yet). 06. Click the Style Well: <https://support.omnigroup.com/documentation/omnigraffle/mac/7/en/using-the-tools/#using-the-style-well> 07.
