Is it really impossible to create an Hover state?


Hi, I just started with Balsamiq and I’ve been looking for how to set an HOVER state on an item (button, picture…). It looks like it’s not possible but I just can’t believe it… This is such a basic and important function !
Am I missing something ?


Hey @Xochimiqui,

You’re correct, my friend, we don’t have a hover state in our app. I’m sorry about that.

Our focus are quick and easy wireframes that mimic pencil and paper. Animations and triggers are more complex, and are more for prototyping than sketching - that’s why we don’t offer them.

Hopefully that makes sense, but please let me know if you have any questions. :slight_smile:
