[Release] Second Batch of Balsamiq Mockups 3 Bug Fixes

Hello again friends!

We're back with another round of bug fixes.

Here's what's new in today's release:

  • We did a major cleanup of the "Save" and "Save As" code. It's now much cleaner and finally reliable. We also show a little notification when you hit save, so that you have confirmation that autosaving is doing its job.
  • We now commit any text you might have typed if you hit CTRL+S or Save from the menu, like we did in version 2.
  • Fixed a bug when renaming a custom icon asset after using it.
  • Fixed an issue with some menus (Close Project, Print...) staying disabled if you closed all project windows and opened a new project.
  • Made some optimizations while editing symbols. MUCH bigger optimizations in this area will come in the next release, probably next week.
  • Sped up the loading of projects, and improved the "Loading" and "Drawing" messages even more.
  • Fixed an issue with exporting to PNG or PDF when the mockup was bigger than the maximum canvas size.
  • Fixed the handling of the Restore and Delete Permanently menus in the Trash view.
  • Fixed an issue with mockup ordering "not sticking".

How do I update?

Install build 3.0.5 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! 🙂

You can expect another release similar to this one in a week or so.

  1. 3.0.4 is running smoother, it shows the mockup list short time after start, but also no progess window.
    Also here, window get minimized, cpu drops to 0% and windows get maximized again and hangs…

    If you want, I can share my screen or make a recording and publish it onto dropbox.

  2. 3.0.3 Version:
    Big Mockups will open up, it shows the initial screen and then darkgrey for some minutes until its loaded (80 mockups inside the project). Balsamiq uses 1800MB of RAM. Mockups are coming up all 3rd try. But application is crashing randomly.

    After upgrading to 3.0.5 Version, the balsamiq has the same issues with starting up and loading screen, but the mockup is never showing up.
    somewhen, the window get minimized and shortly after back to the screen and stays then grey, CPU is dropping to 0%.

    See here how it looks like:

    Tryd to start the 3.0.5 version around 10 times, same issue all the time.

    Badly that our company relays on this mockup tool and we need to fix them fast or switch the product. 🙁
