Hello friends of Balsamiq! Another month, another exciting release!
We have added some controls and properties to make it easier to create designs inspired by Material Design.
A new generic Smartphone control!
Check it out! You'll no longer have to use an iPhone or download a stencil from Mockups To Go.
Thanks to all the folks that requested this here and anyone else who has written in about this feature.
A new Circle Button control, with lots of options!
Sliders now have three thumb options, and support for color:
There it is!
Thanks again bcarlson and others for requesting this.
That's right. You can pick any of your image assets as an icon now. Easy and powerful!
We effectively removed the "custom icons" feature. Gone are the days of having to name your assets with the "icon_" prefix!
We had some users report that drag+drop wasn't working in macOS Sierra, which shipped yesterday. We scrambled to find a workaround, and we did!
Thanks so much to cudatron, Niket_Anand and everyone else for the early reports!
If you're using the Web Demo, Mockups 3 for Google Drive, Confluence Cloud or JIRA Cloud, you're already updated.
For Desktop, simply install from our download page on top of your current installation. You won't have to re-register.
As always, if you hit any snags with the new build let us know immediately and we'll fix it right up! 🙂
For posterity, today's release is build 3.5.1 3.5.2 3.5.3: we just released a fix for this regression and another reported by Andreas F. Oops!

Hi Julia and sorry for the confusion.
The Circle Button is not available in our web version, for now, because it still uses the previous version of our editor. The good news is that we’re getting closer to the next major release that we are preparing for our web product. It will be native (no more Flash needed) and will have all the latest features we recently added.
In the meantime, you may want to use the Shape control instead. You can add an icon, some text and even change the background and border color if needed.
Hope this helps!
In the online version (myBalsamiq), do I need to do anything special to see the circle button? It’s not in the default library for me.
Nice feature release. Going to give it a spin now. Fixes are useful.
