Feature Request: Page Numbers and Spell Check

Hi @Tyler_Durrans,

As Brendan mentioned, that is definitely something we’d like to add to Mockups. We are thinking about adding it once we go native and we are working hard to make that happen soon. I’ve added your vote for it to help prioritizing the request.

Let us know if we can do anything else for you! :slight_smile:

YES on spell check, it’s starting to be a big problem for me :frowning: I am bad speller and have lots of typos. Without Ctrl F feature it also hard to fix the error that I do notice.

I agree on automatic page numbers, but for me, it would be good if it was added automatically in slide name on the left nav. I get and track my changes based on slide number, but that’s very hard when there are no numbers. Normally I keep the PDF open and then find correct slides this way, but would love to cut this step out.

Adding my support for:

  1. Spell Check
  2. Find / Replace

I use the Mockups 3 application natively, on my Windows machine. Does this mean spell check is coming soon?

Hey @JohnZ, What we mean by “native” is a version that does not rely on Adobe Air. It’s a big change that will allow us to add a lot of cool features (like Spell Check and Find/Replace). It will take more time, but we can’t wait to get it to you!

Same here as in I’m not bad at spellings, but at times when you write a lot of sections having text components an auto spellcheck feature can definitely help and can save you a lot of time + good for sending out a mockup to a client without being embarrassed by putting silly spelling mistakes lol. :slight_smile:

+1 for Spell Check! When is this going to be added? it’s so embarrassing when you make silly spelling errors in your wireframes. This should be added ASAP.

@Balsamiq this feature was requested almost 4 years ago. Is it even on your radar?, get it together!

Hi @Tatyana_Margoline,

I know it’s frustrating when features don’t appear as fast as we’d like. After shipping Balsamiq Cloud in October 2017 we turned our attention to new, native versions of the desktop apps which we sorely needed to update. Both those projects were huge - in relative terms - for our small team and have been the main focus of our engineering for some time now. The new desktop apps are in limited beta now which is a good indication of progress.

Once we get those shipped, we’ll be able to turn our attention and resources back to feature requests. I know it’s not the answer you want to hear but I also think it’s important to be up front about our priorities.

We track all requests like this formally and prioritize based on feedback like this. So thank you for letting us know how important this is - I have added your vote to our tracking.

For now, all the best.

+1 Spell check, please

On the topic of spell check - have you considered partnering with someone else who already does this? Basamiq, as a company, is a wireframe app expert and doesn’t actually need to also become a spellcheck expert when there are other companies out there who have already cracked that nut.

Perhaps this will be useful: https://www.programmableweb.com/category/spelling
