Shrinking B3 window causes some horizontal scrolling


#1

Possibly related to the below issue, I’ve noticed in Mockups 3.0.8 that shrinking the window causes the page to auto-scroll to approximately the middle of the mockup, horizontally. I can’t exactly identify what the behavior is, but I know it ends up with me having to scroll to the left on a ton of screens to get back to the content.

Here’s the workflow that most frequently causes this behavior:

  1. I’m working at my desk, with Balsamiq Mockups taking up a good portion of my 27 inch monitor - and all the content in the mockup is generally aligned to the left.
  2. I move Mockups to a projector with a small resolution, and my B3 window shrinks accordingly.
  3. Every time I switch to a page, the mockup is horizontally scrolled at least part of the way to the right, and I have to scroll it back to the left edge.

It’s fairly irritating if you are going through a set of 20-30 mockups, and the first time you open each one, you have to scroll it to the left.

I’m having this problem as well, after switching from my large desktop display to standalone laptop and then back to the large monitor. Having to drag / horizontally scroll every. dang. mockup. back into full view is pretty annoying, to be honest.

(In my case I’m switching between a 27-inch monitor running at 2560x1440 and a 14-inch built-in laptop screen running at 1600x900, and projector running at some lower resolution than that.)

Definitely a bug, @ebow, and I’m sorry about that. We will get it fixed.

In the interim, to save you some time (and frustration) try using Zoom-To-Fit (CMD + 0 on OS X, CTRL + 0 on Windows) and then Actual Size (CMD + 1 or CTRL + 1.)

It’s not perfect, but it may be easier than manually scrolling.

Thanks for reporting this @mrdehate and @ebow. Please let us know if you see anything else! :smiley:

Thanks for the tip. I can hit Ctrl-0 then Ctrl-1 pretty quickly, so this should cover me for now.
