Adding font icon to font awesome icons in Balsamiq



So Balsamiq for desktop uses font awesome icons. This library didn’t have what I needed so I converted an SVG to a ttf. How do I get it into the list now for my mockups?


Hi raoulk,

You need to convert them to a png or jpg file. The image requires an “icon_” prefix.
Then you can drag the file just onto the canvas and it will be added to the icon library.

You can read more about adding custom icons here:

Let us know if something stays unclear.


Yes I knew this part. I thought since the icons were from font awesome they were actual fonts available within Balsamiq but from your response I take it they are in fact images. Thanks for the help.
