Importing Wireframes from Another Balsamiq Wireframes Project

Sometimes you might want to copy or move a wireframe (or a few) from one project to another. Here is a simple way to do it:

  1. Open the two projects (each in its own browser tab or window)
  2. In the source project, select the wireframe(s) you want to copy or move
  3. Copy the wireframe(s) (CTRL/+C)
  4. In the target project, paste your wireframe(s) (CTRL/+V)

That’s it! You may now delete the wireframe(s) from the source project if you wish.

This simple method works across all our Balsamiq Wireframes products.

Note: Symbols and Assets/Images are also transferred during this process so no need to worry about those.


Importing a Project From Other Versions of Balsamiq

If you have a project created in another Balsamiq product (using the .bmpr extension), you can directly upload your project to your Balsamiq Cloud Space, as detailed here.

Another easy way to import it is to create a new project and use the "Project > Import > Import from BMPR.." option.


Importing from myBalsamiq

If you are using myBalsamiq and would like to move your wireframes to Balsamiq Cloud, here is the way to download a project from your myBalsamiq project page:

The option is also available from your myBalsamiq home page:

The “Download BMPR” option will create a BMPR file from your myBalsamiq project and downloads it to your computer. You can then directly upload your file as a project in Balsamiq Cloud.
