Hi friends. I know, it's been almost a month since our last release, but I think you'll agree this one was worth the wait.
Take a look!
This subtle-but-awesome change is too hard to describe in text so I made a little video about it.
Big thanks go out to GooeyGrl, Julian Whitacker and Jenni Merrifield for schooling us on the right conventions to use, to Greig Varga for a related request and to David Hirschfeld for helping us debug this awesome little feature.
I have to say, Mockups is becoming a nice little piece of software if I may say so myself... ;)
It's getting there...thanks in LARGE part to all of you and your bug reports and feature requests, so THANK YOU and keep them coming! :)
We love to see more and more people building tools that integrate and extend Mockups in various ways. Since our last release, four more have popped up:
More exciting third-party Mockups extensions are coming, so stay tuned!
Easy! Just install from our download page on top of your current installation. You won't have to re-register.
As always, if you hit any snags with the new build let us know immediately and we'll fix it right up! :)
For posterity, these are the version numbers of today's release:
One more thing: we now maintain a list of older builds for all of our products, in case you need one. Check it out: builds archive.

P.S. By the way, I hope you're having as much fun using Mockups as we are making it. We're having so much fun it's almost embarrassing... shouldn't work be hard? Oh well, let's keep it going and see what happens. Have a wonderful day everyone!
First, let me say that I absolutely love Balsamiq Mockups. It’s a perfect tool to create great design sketches, and I use it almost every day!
However, I have a big problem with the latest change regarding Shift+Drag.
When I do designs, it’s often very important to ensure that my components are properly lined up horizontally or vertically. Previously I could shift-click a component and then move it along the horizontal or vertical line without worrying that the component would unintentionally move along the other axis. Many other design programs support this and it is a very important feature for me.
However, with the new functionality of Shift+drag I cannot do this any more. Is there another way of moving a component only along vert or horz?
[Peldi: Hi Martin, I just tested it an shift+drag to keep horizontal or vertical axis still works. Just start dragging something and hit SHIFT…if it doesn’t work, can you please send us some steps to reproduce the issue? http://community.balsamiq.com or firstname.lastname@example.org]
You’re absolutely right, it works! Previously I could hit Shift first, and then click the component, but now I need to click the component first and then shift. But it works, thanks for the quick reply!! :)
