Hi there balsamiq friends!
You may be asking yourselves: so what happened this week in balsamiq world? 🙂
Thanks to my beta participants' awesome feedback, I have made the following adjustments:
I added the following control types
- Link Bar
- Menu - this is the coolest
I fixed the following bugs:
- demo window can now be resized (thanks Seth)
- mouse now goes back to normal when you exit the demo window
- another mouse-related bug Jason told me about (exit the demo while dragging)
- I improved the drag and drop experience: now the controls are where you expect them to be, and you get to edit the text immediately on drop, PPT style (thanks Michael). Try it!
- better tooltips everywhere
- improved QuickAdd to ignore spaces and generally work better (thanks Seth). Try it!
- text styles (italic, font size) didn't work
- made the floating property inspector NOT be annoying and in your way (thanks Jason)
- resizing now has a minimum 10x10 size so that you don't go crazy in negative sizes
- straightened up the notebook background (thanks Will)
Features I removed (yes!):
- bold text style
- search in ui library
I'm sure I also worked on the balsamiq site but I can't really remember what I did, I'll try to keep track this week so that I can give you a better update next week.
We have two more people on the beta:
- K### T### - my rock-star product manger partner-in-crime at Adobe (yes, I told her!)
- W### T### - my super-star graphic designer best friend
welcome and thanks for your time, it's a privilege to have you!
On the competition front, Michael forwarded me this link: http://www.lovelycharts.com/ - they are going with the 3euro/mo consumer play, which is good news to me (I think that's a much harder sale than piggy-backing on Confluence). Still, competition is good, I love it!
I think next week I'll go back to working on the server-side integration with Confluence, stay tuned.
Have a great week everyone!
