Export from balsamiq mockups 3 to mybalsamiq



if I do as you suggested in this topic

I get this:

where I really wanted this:

Thank you for this awesome tool. This thing bugs me. What am I doing wrong?
In desktop app I go to Project > Export > Project to BMMLs to ZIP.

Then that ZIP I upload as new project in web browser app.

If I export it to PDF, everything looks as it should.


Hey @Filip_Fabijanic, really sorry for the trouble here my friend.

The problem here is that myBalsamiq doesn’t have the updated iPhone 6/7 control, and your wireframe doesn’t fit in the iPhone 5 control.

If you swap to the iPhone 5 control in Mockups 3, make adjustments to your wireframe, and then export it, it should import fine.

I’m sorry again for the hassle. Once Balsamiq Cloud is ready, this will no longer be a problem. :slight_smile: Let me know if there is anything we can do to help!


Hey @Brendan. Thank you for your quick reply. I am not really sure how should I do this.

Can you please post some brief steps?

Thanks for doing this.


Sure thing, @Filip_Fabijanic

You’re going to want to load up the project in Mockups 3 for Desktop. Once you have done that

  1. Select the Phone control
  2. In the property inspector, select the “5, SE” box under Model
  3. Once you do that, your phone will be smaller, so you will have to make some adjustments to the elements inside of it.
  4. When everything fits properly, select Project > Export > Project to BMML Zip
  5. Once you have the zip file, you can upload it to your myBalsamiq site

Let me know if that works for you. :slight_smile:


This does the job, @Brendan! :slight_smile:
