Hello friends of Balsamiq!
We never get tired of making our product better so that you can be even more awesome using it. 🙂
Let's see what's in today's release.
This is one of those rare features that's harder to explain than to use.
Here's the problem: when presenting your project in Full Screen Presentation mode, you might notice that most of your mockups end up in the top or top-left corner of the screen. This is because one of your mockups (perhaps a site map or another mockup that's not properly part of the prototype) is "too tall" or too wide, pushing everything else to the edge of your screen.
The solution: we now give you a quick way to figure out which mockup is "the offender" and to remove it from the centering calculation.
Let me show you real quick:
We are excited about this feature, it should take care of a bunch of separate requests: here's one from Sven, Jess_Readhead and Patty_Crain, one from lawrie, one from radiator, plus others from Aurora K., Abhishek R., Seth G. Mobile Tech Info, and more.
There are times where it's better to just let a user view a project without letting them make edits.
Before today's release, we let users make changes in these occasions, but those changes were not being saved. As you can imagine, this led to some confusion and lost work.
Starting today, when one of the occasions above happens, the app will go in "read-only mode", meaning that you'll be able to see everything and even copy text from each control, but you won't be able to make changes to the project.
This will also be useful in the future when we add richer collaboration capabilities to the app: you'll be able to invite collaborators but only give them viewing rights instead of editing rights. Fancy!
If you're using the Web Demo, Mockups for Google Drive or Mockups 3 for JIRA Cloud, you're already updated.
For other versions, 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 3.3.9 (if you are wondering about the skip in minor version since our 3.3.5 announcement, it's because builds 3.3.7 and 3.3.8 were released silently to fix a few little bugs, only in our web-based versions).
