ProtoShare 8.0

Release Notes for ProtoShare 8.0, released on February 16, 2013.

Laser Guides

Improve your layout with precise alignment using the new laser guides when you move or add components.

Split Review into Run and Share in the Editor

Run Mode: By clicking Run your prototype will open in a new window, allowing interactivity and clickable links that will allow you to navigate between your pages.

Share continues to bring you the same functionality as the old Review button. Share opens a new tab in your browser where topics and annotations can be added to your prototype for collaboration and feedback.

Redesigned the Listing section and renamed it Sidebar

The redesigned listing is a tabbed interface that provides more space for manipulating large lists of states or components. In addition, component listing performance is improved, and drag and drop re-ordering is available for every listed component.
