Balsamiq 3 button color property not working


Hi, I am using balsamiq 3 going through the mobile app tutorial. I want to change the color of a button, but when I click on the “selection color” property to change colors , the page goes through some reload stage but the background color of the button is not changed at all.
Is this a bug?


Hi @mmesarina,

Sorry you’ve hit this snag.

The button color should be applied when you click on the new color (like below).

If you perform the above steps and hit the bug, would you mind sending an email to with your BMPR file and a screenshot attached so that we can try to reproduce the issue here? We will keep your data in the strictest confidence and only long enough to debug your issue.

Also, could you please specify in the email which version of Balsamiq Mockups 3 for desktop you are running?
