My Balsamiq projects use Shared Symbols Libraries stored in the Account Assets folder. I am using the Balsamiq support page suggestion to create a Balsamiq 3 template with the Account Assets imported into the Symbol Library to make future wireframes. I am hoping for some guidance to migrate my old files to Balsamiq 3 so I can continue working on them.
When I import my Balsamiq 2 files I see the dreaded “Symbol not found” on the imported Balsamiq file. This happens when I import into my Balsamiq 3 template or into a blank Balsamiq 3 file. Interestingly, when importing the Account Asset Shared Symbol Libraries are imported as Markups as well. They do not go into the Symbols Library. They display properly with the exception of the “Image not found” on the images in the Account Assets Shared Symbols.
I have many Balsamiq 2 files to import so a migration plan that doesn’t require manually editing individual files is important. I could use a Text Editor to make bulk changes to the Balsamiq 2 files to prepare them for migration if necessary. For example, if it would be necessary to move the account asses to the symbols folder I could bulk search and replace:
Any help would be appreciated!
