Balsamiq Community Discussion

Moving button on multiple mockup screens


I use balsamiq to present potential screen designs, which can be over multiple mockups in the same document. Within the screen designs there will be common buttons, grids, drop downs, images…

Within the presentation the customer may say ‘would it be possible to move the OK button from the right to the left’. The current issue that I have is that this means moving the OK button on multiple pages.

Is there a way to assign a button, grid… so that if I move it on one mockup it moves it on all?


Hi @MDL1979,

Thanks for getting in touch, I’d love to help you out with this.

You can achieve what you look for by using our Symbols features, as detailed on this page. Once your symbol is created, moving the button element from the source symbol will be reflected on all mockups using it. Please see the result below:

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you need anything else. :slight_smile:
