Balsamiq not allow multi selection in some components


Why some components are not allowing the multi selection on Balsamiq?


Hi Alex,

I’m sorry but I’m not sure I understand the question. Are you looking to specify more than one selected row in controls like the Datagrid or List? Or are you looking to select multiple mockups at the same time in order to delete them?


Yes Brendan, for sure. I would like to select one or more row like select control or row in Datagrid. It isn’t possible with Balsamiq 3.
Thank you


Ok Alex, got it!

This is becoming a highly requested feature. I don’t have an ETA on when we will be ready to ship it, but it very much on our radar.

For now, there is an easy work around:

  1. Drag a rectangle into your mockup and set it’s opacity to 50%
  2. Select “No Border” for border style
  3. Adjust it’s size and color, and then overlay it on top of the Data Grid row you want to select

It might also be helpful to group the Data Grid and rectangle so that they move together.

Let me know if that works for you in the interim, Alex.

Happy wireframing!


Got it. But that is a pretty cool funcionality that not have. For now it works.
Thanks for help Brendan.


I would very much use the ability to highlight multiple rows in a data grid.
