Curly Braces, Scratch-Outs, Big Red X-s, oh my!
Today I finally enlisted my lovely wife (and hand behind all of the UI controls in Balsamiq Mockups) to draw a few more shapes for me. A few hours later, I give you...
I added both a "Horizontal Curly Brace" and a "Vertical Curly Brace" controls, for better annotating your mockups.
Also note the property inspector which lets you choose which way the curly brace is pointing:
Scratch-out and X-Nay controls
Also useful for annotating, idea when you want to tell whoever did the mockup "we're not building this!"
They are called "Red X / X-Nay" and "Scratch-Out" for you Quick-Add lovers.
Other improvements from today
This morning I finally squashed the "off by a little" positioning bug which has plagued many of your mockups (it was a simple change of a value from 10 to 3 pixels, go figure).
Also, at the suggestion of the awesome Michael Matti, I implemented the following:
Basically in the "Icon and Label" control you can now decide if you want the label below the icon or to the right of it.
While I was at it, I finally added support for icons in Checkbox and RadioButton controls:
So overall, today's been a good day. You can find the new controls in the live version here on the site, the Confluence version and the upcoming 1.1 release of Mockups for Desktop, which is going live on the 21st and you can preview already using this temporary badge.
