Does Balsamiq support element referencing?


I don’t know what to call it, but here’s what I’m doing and the pain I’m enduring.
I’m designing a website, and all of my pages (50+) use the same sized view and have a standard navigation panel. But if I update a link for the navigation panel in one mockup, then I need to update it across ALL 50 to keep the navigation consistent.

Is there anyway I can create some universal element which multiple mockups reference, so all I have to do is updated the element and all my associated mockups will automatically inherit the change?

If this isn’t in MyB or M3, then I’d love to recommend it.


Hi @Chris26,

Thanks for sharing your need today! :slight_smile:

We do support this feature that we call Symbols in our tool. Symbols are supported both in Mockups 3 for Desktop and in myBalsamiq. You can find all the details about it on this page.

Here’s an introduction video about it:

Hope this helps! Let us know if you need anything else.


OMG, that’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thank you!
