Mockups 3.1.1 – Collaborative wireframing for app development.

Mockups 3.1.1

Using Mockups feels like drawing, but because it’s digital, you can tweak and rearrange easily. Teams can come up with a design and iterate over it in real-time in the course of a meeting. Product managers, designers, developers, and even clients can now work together in the same tool to quickly iterate over wireframes, before writing code.

Focus on Content and Functionality

  • Low-Fi Sketch Wireframes. Sketchy, low-fidelity wireframes let you focus design conversations on functionality.
  • UI Components and Icons. 75 built-in user interface components and 187 icons, plus a whole lot of community-generated components.
  • Click-Through Prototypes. Linking lets you generate click-through prototypes for demos and usability testing.
  • Export to PNG or PDF. Share or present mockups with embedded links using PDF export, or use a 3rd party tool to export to code.

Never Waste a Minute

  • Quick Add for Speed. Lets you build wireframes using your keyboard.
  • Drag-and-Drop for Simplicity. Interfaces with drag and drop components–anyone can use it.
  • Re-usable Symbol Libraries. Create templates, masters, and re-usable component libraries.
  • Keyboard Shortcuts. Use keyboard shortcuts to keep moving quickly.
  • Import and Export. Seamless integration with all versions of Mockups, for when you’re back online.
  • Works Offline. Work on the plane or in a coffeeshop without an Internet connection.
  • Mac, Windows, and Linux. Fully cross-platform.

What’s New

Version 3.1.1:

  • New feature: Mockup Alternates! Alternates (also sometimes referred to as versions or branches) allow you to create variations on a single mockup design without adding more mockups to your project.
  • Mockups 3 comes to Google Drive! Our Google Drive plugin is the first to "catch up with Desktop". Today's release brings all of the v.3 goodness to Mockups 3 for Google Drive customers.
  • Built-in Background Music! A few weeks ago we asked ourselves, why not give our awesome users a built-in, get-in-the-zone-inducing track to listen to? And so we did!
Improvements to Full Screen Presentation Mode
  • Changed how we show link hints in full-screen. We no longer leave the pink rectangles on all the time, but instead "flash them" as needed and fade them out so that they don't disturb your mockups. If you want to see where they are, you can click on any empty areas of the mockup to make them flash again.
  • Added a subtle animation when hiding the full-screen toolbar.
  • We now remember the following settings across project and across restarts: active right-side panel, toolbar minimized or not, show link hints, show cursor, show markup, zoom mode.
  • Fixed an issue with settings showing the wrong value in some cases.
Bug Fixes Related to Controls
  • Fixed an issue with the "123" label in the iOS keyboard not being centered.
  • Added support for the {mockup-name} macro in Title and Subtitle controls.
  • Improved how the iPad, iPhone and Accordion controls behave when resized to be very small.
  • Made the top padding of the Label and Text control types match, and improved the padding of other text controls.
  • Changed the default size of the Geometric Shape text to be 13pt, like most of our controls.
  • If you use r in an image label, the text stays centered now.
  • Same as above but for the Image Map control. :)
  • Fixed how the text alignment works in the Sticky Note control.
  • We changed the color of the Red X control in Sketch skin to be a brighter red.
Other Improvements and Bug Fixes
  • Some users were seeing saving errors, especially when working with OneDrive files. Those should all be fixed now.
  • We now work well with read-only files! We no longer try to update mockup thumbnails unless you change something in the mockup, so just opening a BMPR and looking around won't change the file on disk.
  • We now support our markdown syntax (except for strikethrough) in mockup notes and project description. *Try it out!* :)
  • Fixed an issue with the positioning of the resource menu in the navigator panel.
  • Fixed an issue with reordering not working on the first attempt.
  • Added a subtle animation when creating a new mockup.
  • Added a subtle animation when entering "grid view".
  • Fixed an issue (on Windows) with project windows not maintaining their size or maximized state across restarts.
  • Fixed an issue with creating a symbol library when there are none generating a run-time exception.
  • Fixed an issue with the vertical scroll position of the navigator after a "move to trash" operation.
  • Fixed an issue with using arrows to change position and size.
  • Fixed an issue with QuickAdd losing focus in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue with placing new symbols in a symbol library in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue with selecting something in the Symbols navigator incorrectly opening all other branches.
  • Fixed an issue with new projects getting created after discarding an unnamed project.
  • Fixed an issue with link hints from other symbols being shown incorrectly in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue with importing the same image twice not updating all usages.
  • Fixed an issue with removing symbol overrides not working in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue with importing BMML projects when a file name contained an illegal character.
  • Removed illegal characters from mockup names when exporting to BMML.
  • In Mockups for Desktop, the About window now properly says "Adobe Air Player" instead of Flash Player.
  • Fixed an issue with the UI library showing blank thumbnails after reopening a project.
  • Fixed a typo in the Google Wallet icon name.
  • Pressing CTRL+PAGEDOWN and PAGEUP now loop around mockups when you get to the last (or first).
