Custom control menu box for frequently used controls/icons

I am a massive amateur at wireframing so forgive me if this is considered irrelevant.
What I find myself desiring over all other inputs is a custom folder of controls and icons that I am using most often.
I have no clue as to what I am doing but your software is so easy to use I am having a lot of fun building my frames. It is when I want to use the same icons on different frames and having to scroll through a library again and again that I desire an easier answer.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Hi @lovnlifeNZ,

It’s great to hear that you’re having fun using our tool! :slight_smile:

While there is no direct way to access frequently used assets (I’m adding your vote for the request), you could use the quick add tool to find them directly, instead of having to search through an entire category.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have more questions.

Ross, Balsamiq is great.

I’d suggest using a Symbol for your frequently used stuff and naming it in a specific way. That way you can filter down your search list easily.

With frequency of use you will just type in the search box and your desired icon will come up immediately. I don’t use the control picker.
