Window button positions


Is there any way to move the navigation buttons (minimize, maximize, close) to the left-hand side? I’m on Mac, doing mockups for an OS X application – the buttons are in the wrong place.

Granted, this isn’t a dealbreaker, but it just looks wrong.


Hey @greay,

While there isn’t a way to move them on the Window control in the app, you can download and import the OS X Window Control from our Mockups to Go community site.

Here are the instructions for getting that window into your existing project.

Let me know if that helps. We are here if you need anything else! :slight_smile:


That would be great, if symbols worked like built-in controls, but they’re quite a bit more cumbersome and don’t offer the same easy customizability :frowning:

The fact that resizing the custom window takes several extra steps is enough of a hassle that I’ll probably stick to just using the default one.


Sorry about that, @greay. I will talk to the team and see if we can implement a way to move them. I know you aren’t the first to mention it!
