The Document Toolbar is located above the canvas whenever you are working in an OmniGraffle document (diagram, stencil, or template). The Document Toolbar is unique, in the sense that it provides you with document-specific things that you can do; from opening and closing the Navigation Sidebar or Inspectors, exporting the current canvas, or adding a stencil—a pre-drawn object—to the canvas.
The Document Toolbar features the filename for the document that you are working on, along with a series of buttons to the left and right for working with the current document.
Tap to hide or show the sidebar along the left side of the screen.
Tap to undo the previous change to your document. Touch and hold to reveal a pop-up menu with the option to Redo.
Tap to close the current document and return its folder in the Document Browser.
If you see three dots in the toolbar, this implies there are more options/buttons available than there is space for in the toolbar. Tap to open the More menu, which presents the other available options.
Sync with OmniPresence
This icon appears to the right of the document filename if the file is synced via OmniPresence. The icon indicates whether a sync is in-progress; tapping the OmniPresence icon initiates a sync.
In its most basic state, OmniPresence is online and ready to sync files.
Whenever OmniPresence notices a change to the files in the sync folder, the icon appears to be lifting a barbell.
If you lose your Internet connection (which is required for syncing), the icon turns light green to denote that you are offline.
If you see a light green sync icon with an exclamation mark, it means that OmniPresence failed to connect to the sync server. This could be the result of an invalid Account Name or Password, or something as simple as an intermittent Internet connection that drops while OmniPresence is trying to connect to the sync server.
If the icon remains in this state, here are some things you could try:
- Double-check your Account Name and Password.
- Check your network connection in Settings.app.
If that doesn’t help, contact our Support Humans for assistance.
