The ability to create components and re-use them across different mockups is one of our most highly requested features.
Some people call this "master templates", others call it "reusable widgets". We're going to call it "Components".
We are finally ready to tackle this problem head-on, and we'd like to ask for your help.
We created a public myBalsamiq project containing our ideas for a possible implementation of the features that we think will collectively solve all the different use-cases related to reusing objects.
If you could take a few minutes to look around and give us feedback on it (by leaving comments under each mockup), we'd appreciate it.
We also included a draft of an implementation roadmap, with releases along the way. That's the mockup I would start from.
Here's the link to the project: https://our.mybalsamiq.com/project/143
Send it to your UX-savvy friends! :)
We are eager to get started on the implementation, so if you have some feedback, don't be shy! :)
Together we can make this very important feature as good as it can be. We hope you'll want to pitch in with your ideas! :)
