Import PNG causes Balsamiq 3 to crash


Every time I try to import these png’s, Balsamiq 3 crashes. Any idea why? Thanks all!


Hey Brian!

Nice to see you here, my friend.

My guess would be that it’s crashing because it’s importing 700+ images, but I actually got them to import without issue. Here is a file with the Material Design icons:

Material Icons.bmpr (3.9 MB)

Font awesome is actually included with Mockups by default. All of our default icons are FontAwesome. I just double checked, and we recently updated to Font Awesome 4.7, so Mockups should have all the current icons.

Let me know if that helps. :slight_smile:


Thank you. This is awesome! I was trying to figure out how to import the
PNGs as icons so that I can easily change their colors, etc.

We recently made a change where any image you import is automatically an icon as well.

That means you don’t have to name assets a certain way to access them as icons. Everything should be in the asset section of the Icon Library.
