{mockup-name} shorthand does not work in B3 beta



  1. Create a label
  2. Add the text {mockup-name} to the label.

The name of the mockup is added to the label.

The text {mockup-name} is rendered.


Hi @benjohnson

Thanks! This is something that should work. We’ll fix it.


This should be fixed in build 999.69 and higher.


I just installed version 3.2.2 and am still seeing this behavior as benjohnson describes. Thanks!


Looks like we broke something with the label in 3.2.2, that macro should work with other text fields.

Thanks for the heads up @heatherl. We will get it fixed!


I have the same problem in 3.2.4.


Hi @PhilippQF,

Sorry for the hassle with this one.

We fixed it in our latest pre-release version available here if needed:

Just a word of caution here: as this is a pre-release version, we don’t recommend using it on mission-critical work. The fix will also be included in our next official release.

Thanks for the report! :smile:


Thanks! Looking forward to it, but I’ll wait for the official version.
