We’re working to improve the ProtoShare Component Outline. The Outline (highlighted below) lists all of the components on your page. Using the Outline, you can select, re-order, access the context menu, and even drag from the Outline to move a component that is hard to select on the canvas. Mousing over components in the Outline highlights them on the canvas.
Attaching a “State” to a component (to hide or show it) causes an ‘eyeball’ icon to appear to the left of that element in the Outline. Clicking the eyeball changes States to show or hide the component.
We’ve added an eyeball to every component in the Outline. Clicking the eyeball will hide or show that component. The icon for a component with a State attached changes to a lightning bolt.
The other change to the Outline involves identifying components that have Actions attached to them. Actions in ProtoShare are events (like clicking or hovering on a component) that trigger States to change. Today, the Outline does not show you which components have Actions.
Outline will display a ‘hand’ icon to the right of any component which has an Action attached.
We’ve written a 2 question survey for you to give us your thoughts, feelings and suggestions on these changes! (You can request a preview of the features too.)
Looking forward to hearing from you!
