Importing Wireframes from Another Project

Sometimes you might want to copy or move a wireframe (or a few) from one project to another. Here are a couple of ways to do it.

Copying and Pasting

  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.

Dragging and Dropping

Alternatively, you can can also drag and drop wireframes from one project to another (and then delete the wireframe(s) from the source project if you wish).

This method works only for Balsamiq Wireframes for Desktop.

Note: Both methods include the transfer of Symbols and Assets/Images during the process so no need to worry about those.


Importing from Other Versions of Balsamiq

If you have a project created in another Balsamiq product (using the .bmpr extension), you can directly open your project in Balsamiq Wireframes for Desktop.

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