[IMPLEMENTED] Feature request - promote alternate to new mockup

Balsamiq Edit: This has been implemented in version 3.3.10

Occasionally I want to extract an alternate and put it in a new mockup of its own. It’s not a big deal to do this the manual way (create new mockup, copy-paste the content from the alternate), but it’d be nice to have a direct option to do this in a single step from the alternate’s right-click menu.

Hey @Chris_Gatland,

Just added your vote for this one as it has been requested by some users already. This would be a nice option so we’ll discuss it further with the team. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about it! :slightly_smiling:

Hey @Chris_Gatland,

We just released our latest official version (3.3.11). When working on an alternate version, you can now “Duplicate As New Mockup” if needed, as shown below:

Thanks again for the request! :slight_smile:

The new version (3.3.11) is available here.

And the complete release notes are here.

Awesome! :slight_smile:

Forgot to mention this at the time - can we also have this option for the official version (ie when selecting it in the alternatives list)? In a mockup with alternatives, if you duplicate it, you then have to manually delete the alternatives if you didn’t want them.

Hey @Chris_Gatland!

Actually, we added this feature request when you suggested it here. :slight_smile:

In the meantime, the easiest way to do this would be to:

Anything else, we’re here!

Ah, sorry - forgot I’d raised it already!
