Another week, another sweet little release! 🙂
Here's what's new today:
As we say on our manifesto, if we say we're going to do something, we eventually make true to our promise. This 2 year old request by Michael Bourque is a good example of it.
The feature is simple: if you right-click on a point on your canvas, you will now be able to select from a list of the controls that are behind the visible control under your mouse, sorted by z-order (highest to lowest).
Super-handy. Now, what if you want to add to the selection instead of selecting? Just hold shift before right-clicking and the menus will change:
Thanks to Michael Bourque, Bruce Morehouse, Andi, Jenni Merrifield, Christian Watkins and Duane Fields for contributing to the discussion.
Super-simple, "how could we survive without it until now" little feature. Right-click on a tab and see the new "Open Containing Folder" menu:
Click on it and it will do just that, open a Finder / Windows Explorer window pointed at the folder containing that bmml file. A sweet little balsamiqMarco idea! 🙂
Paolo has been hard at work setting up automated builds for our native installers for Mac, Windows and Linux. Today we round out the platforms by adding a new Linux 32bit build (we already had a 64bit one).
Thanks omarello for requesting it!
Easy! Just 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, these are the version numbers of today's release:

I agree — Select on Layers is a great feature that will save lots of time! Thanks for implementing this!
Select on Layers is an awesome feature that many who spend hours in making mockups will truly love. I am so grateful to you guys for listening and following up with customer needs. I wish every company could be like yours. Bravo!
