Just a quick update.
We've been working on version 1.2 and the new version should include the following:
1. export to OPML (we're trying to add FreeMind too);
2. export as Plain Text;
3. export as Rich Text Outline;
4. change background colour;
5. keyboard navigation and shortcuts as similar apps gave and as requested by users;
6. correction of the "apply themes" function;
7. more themes.
@JamesCraner: we're looking into your bug report and haven't managed to fix it yet. So far only with white background on text not fully-transparent. I'll keep you posted.
1.2 will be submitted to Apple for review by the end of this week.

Thanks for the update, looks like you are making responsive changes from user feedback which is great. The ability to create png files with transparent backgrounds is an important one for me, but I know you are working on it.

Version 1.2 - Codenam Churchill
Just to keep you posted regarding the Delineato Mac Project.
Version 1.2 - codename Churchill - has finally been submitted.
We've compiled every users requests and implemented some several major changes, fixes and new features.
Here's the full list:
- Allows to change the type of shape anytime;
- New themes!
- Exports to OPML, RTF, TXT;
- Users can now choose a different background color, out of 7 different ones
(related to the new themes);
- Keyboard navigation!
- Select shapes left, right, above or below using Cmd+arrow keys;
- Select connected shapes using Cmd+K;
- Create child nodes using Option+Cmd+arrow keys;
- Create new shapes by using Cmd+1 (rectangle), Cmd+2 (ellipse), Cmd+3 (rounded
- Add new main node using Cmd+period;
- Add new main node by option-click anywhere on the canvas;
- Start or end editing a graphic by using Cmd+Enter;
- New alignment options (align left, right, top or bottom edges, horizontal and
vertical centres, make same width or height);
- Center the view on the currently selected shape (Cmd+Y);
- Fixes a bug when editing text;
- Fixes a bug in which some graphics were outside the print area when using the print dialog;
- Fixes several minor bugs;
Although we've made all these change, the essence of simplicity is still there.
As Jony Ive says:
“True simplicity is derived from so much more than the absence of clutter or ornamentation. It’s about bringing order to complexity.”
Hope the review process goes well. Usually takes 2 weeks.

Version 1.2 is out!
Finally version 1.2 is out.
We've been giving some promo codes on the following forum.
There are still some minor issues that are being solved but we believe this new version brings some major new features that users have requested.
@James Craner: we're still struggling with those bugs. I've noticed that even pricy apps like OmniGraffle suffer from the same problem. It seems something related with how the rendering is done in MacOS X but we haven't managed to solve it. We'll keep pushing. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Copy-node-style and paste-node-style functionality. Applying themes/styles on a node-by-node basis.
Keyboard shortcut manager (might work with the system wide one, though, haven't tried it).
When dragging the arrows for new nodes, sometimes it copies the text of the old node, often making it bigger than it needs to be. If the node could auto-resize to whatever you put in it that'd be great.
A text-only object. Just a text box with no frame (you can hack it by choosing a shape and then taking away the lines, but it's a bit cumbersome).
A keyboard command to change node shape. Something like cmd+alt+number (to correspond with the ones you already have).
Letting the "show palette" option be a toggle or adding a second option, so that it can be made to stay somewhere on the screen.
The ability to set a default text alignment.
Bezier-curve lines. Like where you can actually guide where it's going.
Might be a bit harsh since you just came out of 1.2 But hey, when I like something, I want to help make it perfect.

Just a recent convert to mac, avid user of visio / smart draw.
I would gladly pay for the app but I would love a trial to see if it fits my needs (brain storming & flow chart).
In any case please let me know if there is a trial version, thanks !

I have just bought this program. My impression it's good, but i would like to write a couple of issues that would be great to have on futher versions (hopefully the next one).
1.- Grab hand to move easily the template (with space bar for example...or mouse, as it ocurrs in Photoshop).
2.- Zoom with the mouse wheel / magic mouse.
3.- Possibility of Multiple-object scalation at one time (select the desired objects and scale it).
4.- Possibiity of making groups of objects (for example... object that contain objects... and then must be all moved to another place)
5.- Arc-arrow tool (from one to another object, avoiding to cross over objects situated in between)
6.- Possibility of forcing the conector (arrows) to be placed on the middle of an object side... if there are 2 converging to one side, then forced to be situated at 1/3 from each corner.
7.- Zoom to extend at opening a previous file.
...and one important last issue.
The objects/arrow/forms menu sometimes freezes... and nothing can be choosen and placed on the board... then the program must be restarted to continue working...

Just got Delineato to create an org chart for my division and have run into a snag.
I want to create a "forked line" see screen shot below. I can't see how to do this in this app and am afraid that it may not have that capability.
Can anybody help out with that?
One other note: if I right click to get the shape options box I can click on a shape and drag it onto the canvas, but when I let go, the shape floats back into the options box instead of appearing on the canvas. The only way I've gotten shapes to stay on the canvas is to add them through the pull-down menu > Tools > Add New Shape ...
