We’re releasing ProtoShare 9.4.6 on March 1st. This release consists of changes to the Listing in the ProtoShare Editor. The Listing is a feature that allows you to see an outline view of any component on your design, and to select, move, re-order or perform other operations on one or more components.
Show/Hide control for all Components
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. This is a really useful feature when working on prototypes with many components or layers, by allowing you to hide some of the elements while you are working. By combining this with Container components, you can use the listing to work with different ‘layers’ in your prorotype.
The icon for a component with a State attached is now a lightning bolt. Clicking the lightning bolt will show or hide the component by changing the appropriate states.
Actions indicator in the Outline
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.
Thanks for all your feedback on these additions – happy prototyping!
Just want to say I think you guys should switch back the accordion menu expand collapse (+/-) to the left side of the pages, not the right. The update is horrible UX practice, because now the controls are not in a consistent location, instead changing based on the name length of the page. Not sure what the thinking was with this.
Thanks for the comment – can you clarify this for me? The accordion controls have not moved and are on the left hand side. Send customer service a screenshot if you have one.
