Balsamiq Community Discussion

Using symbols across projects



We are using Balsamiq to design mockups for our user stories. There is currently one jira by main feature and it contains several mockups. However we will end up with one jira by user story, and therefore y project.

I would like to reuse components/symbols like menus or tabs in different projects, how can this be done?

I have seen posts on this topics but they are quite old. Any news?
Thank you!


Hi @fab231262,

You can use Symbols across different projects by copying the one(s) you need from one project to the other.

Alternatively, you could also create a template project (BMPR), as suggested here. This way, any new project could be started from this one.

Hope this helps! Any questions, we’re here. :slight_smile:


Thank you for your answer.

More questions :blush:

How do I do for existing projects?

And if a new re-usable image is added to the template project, I guess it does not propagate to the other projects, right?

You have to replace the existing symbols with your copied Symbols. Afaik there is no fast way to replace symbols with new one.
