[FIXED] 'Discard all alternates' sometimes doesn't work

Balsamiq Edit: This has been implemented in version 3.5.3

Hi guys, just noticed a small bug – ‘discard all alternates’ isn’t working. I select the action in the dropdown, and the modal dialogue appears, and I click the ‘Discard All Alternates’ button within the modal, but the alternates still appear.

99% of the time this feature works fine for me, but this is the second time it failed to work, so decided to send a report.

The bmpr file I’m seeing this on started out as a duplicate (Save As … new name) of a previous project. Maybe that has something to do with it?

Get in touch if you’d like more details.

Hi @MikeH,

Sorry for the hassle with this, my friend. We’d love to have a closer look at this one since we cannot reproduce it so far.

Are you able to reproduce it again with the same project?
If so, could you please send us the file to As always, we will keep your data strictly confidential and only long enough to try to debug your issue.

Thanks for the report, we’ll dig this deeper!

Hi @Virgin – Sure, I’ll send you the file now where you can hopefully see the issue.
