Icon & Label: Label disappears if width not enough to display it fully


Hello there,

I’ve recently migrated my Desktop mock-ups to Cloud. In the Desktop version if the label of an Icon & Label component is longer than the component’s width, th text gets trimmed to the available width. In Balsamiq cloud the label completely disappears. Any suggestions? Is this a bug?

Kind regards,


Hi @Yorgos

Thanks for your forum post.

I can see exactly what you mean - the behavior here is definitely different so I’d agree this is a bug. I’ve flagged it internally and we’ll get it fixed.

Regards and thanks,



Hello @alasdair

Thank you for the prompt response. Looking forward to the bug fix.

Is there a way to know when a bug fix is committed and in which build? I presume updates are pushed as they are built and tested (I have build 1203). Sorry if this info is already present somewhere else but I couldn’t find it.

Thanks again,

Since the product is still the new kid on the block, we are pushing a lot of bug fixes for now and we don’t document each one yet. That being said, we’ll keep you in the loop as soon as we fix this particular one. :slight_smile:
