Hi @RGL. I’m thinking that you emailed us about this as well, but just in case it was a different Roman, here’s my answer.
Sorry for the trouble! If I’m understanding you correctly, it sounds like you had set up an Account Assets folder in a custom location, using a config file, and you had your images in there. Then you imported those images into your B3 project, and then imported the BMML files. Let me know if I understood that incorrectly.
There are two things here. One is a bug/missing feature, and one is a difference in order of operations from what you are doing. The change in order of operations is that you don’t need to import the images first into your project, and in fact, even if you do, that’s not going to work. If you imported the images first, we would expect the mockups to be imported with broken references to the images, and you would need to go through each image and select the correct asset again.
The bug/missing feature is that we don’t pick up Account Assets that are located in a folder other than the default folder. We have an item in our list to try and tackle that for the future, but for right now, you would have to move the Account Assets first and then import. Here are the steps you should take:
- Create an Account Assets folder in the default location (Inside the Documents or Documents & Settings folder, create a “Balsamiq Mockups” folder that contains an “assets” folder)
- Copy all of your images to that new “assets” folder that were stored in your previous Account Assets folder
- Move your config file to a different folder so that you don’t lose it, but it’s no longer used either (If you need to find the config file, just open Balsamiq 2.2 and go to the About Balsamiq Mockups dialog and click Open Local Store Folder)
- Restart Balsamiq 2.2 and make sure that the mockups are still working with the images
- Open Balsamiq 3 and import the project using Project > Import > Project from BMMLs Folder
That will import your mockups, as well as the images from the Account Assets folder as assets in the project. Hopefully that does the trick for you. Let us know if you have any trouble or questions. Thanks!
