Balsamiq Mockups for Desktop

The Project Info Panel

New in Balsamiq Mockups 3 is the ability to define project-wide settings for skin, font, and link and selection color. The Project Info panel contains these settings as well as an area to add notes about the project. Click the icon next to the Property Inspector icon to toggle the Project Info panel (keyboard shortcut: CTRL/CMD + ,).

These settings will be applied to all mockups in the project and will be saved with the project (i.e., they persist when the project is closed and reopened or shared with others).

To learn more about the difference between sketch and wireframe skin, see Working with Skins.

The default font is Balsamiq Sans, just as in previous versions (not Comic Sans as you might think; although now you can set it to that, all you Comic Sans lovers out there!).

Note: If you want to use a specific project font we recommend that you set it before you start creating your mockups. Changing the project font may adversely affect existing mockups in your project. Each font has different dimensions and proportions so switching fonts may cause controls to overlap or line up unevenly. Also, setting your project font to a variant such as “thin”, “light”, or “extrabold” may override font style settings on individual controls.
