    it does, and I been using it, but its way more than i need and seems it takes forever to make such a simple flowchart (as mine pictured).. i just wanted something that i can make text boxes, connect lines (single and double) and that's it..

    i'm not really sure what the "start," "data," "manual input" and all that means. :(

    But thanks, i think if i can't find a simple one, i'll just end up using that. :)

    A nice thing about OmniGraffle is that it is just as easy as you want to make it...

    Just use the Basic stencil, and drag in the boxes and arrows you want... :)

    No, but it is, or at least was, bundled with lots of Macs, like the PowerBooks of the OP... :)

    Isn't it OmniOutliner that comes free, not OmniGraffle?

    Nah, even OmniOutliner, as most of Omni's applications, aren't free, but they have nice and liberal demo's and usually a consumer and a pro line...

    My new Macbook didn't come with omnigraffle.

    On another note, I've never used these, but MyMind or Freemind might be good flowchart apps.
