I have used Balsamiq cloud at previous companies but today created a new project in the Balsamiq Mockups 3 desktop application for the first time.
I named my new project by clicking on the project name at the top left of the screen, underneath the title bar and renamed it successfully. I also noted that 'Auto save every change" was checked in the ‘Project’ menu, so I had no worries about losing my project.
I then opened a new project to import a mockup to my project, dragged it into mine successfully and then closed my colleague’s project, saying I didn’t want to save any changes I may have accidentally made to his project; however, I think it may have closed the wrong project and my project is now not saved! I’ve checked the local store folder and it isn’t there, under UnsavedProjects, LocalProjects, or anywhere else.
Looking at the Projects menu again, I see a ‘Save Project as…’ option. Should i have selected this before closing my new project? I thought that renaming it and having the ‘Auto save every change’ feature enabled should have been sufficient. If not, this is a serious design flaw.
I now have to re-do all my mock ups and am not very happy!
Has anyone else experienced this or know where my project may have gone?
