[IMPLEMENTED] Font Awesome 4.7


Balsamiq Edit: This has been implemented in version 3.5.9

We use Font Awesome a lot, but have noticed that Balsamiq 3 is not keeping up with the releases of Font Awesome. For example, there is a coupe of icons I’d love to use in some current mock ups going to user test in late April (fa-address-card-o).

Is there plans for keeping Balsamiq up to date with the Font Awesome versions?



Hi @fraser_john,

We definitely plan to update the FA icon set to the latest version. No ETA for it yet but we’ll get there!

In the meantime, here is a quick way to add your own icons if needed.

Thanks for sharing your need today! :slight_smile:


Hi @fraser_john,

We just released our latest official version (3.5.9) including version 4.7 of FontAwesome, so now you can take advantage of the 41 new icons they added. Thanks again for the request!

The new version (3.5.9) is available here.
And the complete release notes are here if needed.


Tops! I downloaded the new version a while ago, just have not had time to offer my thanks!!!


Thanks for coming back around and saying “hi”, John. If there is anything else we can do for you, let us know!

Until then, Happy Wireframing, my friend :slight_smile:
