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.


It is not reasonable that not support SVG or font icon directly in Balsamiq. The team should support this feature really.


I’ve added your vote for this one, @Felix. Thanks for sharing your need!
