> Jan, if you change the font in Omnigraffle to LM Roman, you should get the ligatures. Conversely, if you create a small latex document using LM Sans, you'll find that the same text will be without ligatures. So if you want a sans font with ligatures, you'll need some other font.
Alan, the pdf from OG does show the ligatures just fine. Acrobat calls the embedded font "LMSans12-Regular". If I change the font in OG to LM Roman, the Latex pdf still does not show the ligatures.
