Speed Wireframing a Click-Through Prototype Using Symbols


There's so many ways to use Mockups. I rarely do click-through prototypes, but if I have to, then I count on Symbols and links to make it painless.

This speed-wireframing video shows you how to:

  1. set up a menu (linkbar in this example) and create a symbol from it
  2. place instances of the symbol in all of a project's wireframes
  3. override the symbol instances to show selected link
  4. edit the original symbol to set the links and update all the instances
  5. and then demonstrate it

It's quick and easy. Want to know more about how to do it? Ask us!

  1. You can find all the third party tools that will convert Mockups into code including HTML/JS/CSS, MXML/AS, WebORB, and to Mobile applications here:

    Hope this helps.

  2. For those who’re looking at this and thinking.. well I’m sure Balsamiq can export to HTML (DOPE.. no it can’t 🙁 ) … You need to take a look at
