[Release] Stretchy Phones, New Icons, and More!

Hello friends of Balsamiq!

While most of our team is focused on the next major version of Balsamiq, we continue to make little improvements to Balsamiq Mockups 3.5, driven by your requests.

Let's see what's new in today's release.

Stretchy iPhones, iPads and Smartphones!

We know many of you want to wireframe mobile pages and screens that don't fit in a single screen.

With today's release, you will no longer need to use a rectangle control instead of the phone control. You can just stretch the phone or iPad down!

Thew new option is the default for new controls. Existing wireframes won't be affected.

41 New Icons with FontAwesome 4.7!

We incorporated version 4.7 of FontAwesome, so now you can take advantage of the 41 new icons they added.

Other Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Fixed an issue with the ω character in Balsamiq Sans
  • Fixed an issue with exporting mockups that have alternates to BMML ZIP.
  • Fixed the ability to take notes while in full-screen. Thank you Mike_Marx and Ryan for reporting it!
  • Fixed an issue with using autosize when controls are grouped. Thanks Alexey K. for reporting this!
  • We now allow you to transform a Text Area control to a Combo Box control. Thanks Ryan for requesting this!
  • Fixed an issue with the {mockup-name} macro when the mockup has an & character in its name. Thank you duncliffe for reporting it!
  • Improved the auto-size algorithm when labels are aligned to the center or to the right. Thank you Berthold N. for asking for this!

How do I update?

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 3.5.9.

What else is going on?
