Renaming wireframe did not properly notify references for PDF export

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
I had a bunch of wireframes all linked to each other with hotspots and noticed one of the names of the wireframes did not follow the Title Case convention so I renamed it within Balsamiq to change a lowercase F to uppercase.

Fullscreen mode within Balsamiq was fine but a hotspot failed to export to PDF. Took me a while to figure out that the link was to the old name with the lowercase F which Balsamiq didn't care about but the export to PDF did.

I resolved by doing a search and replace in the BMML in a text editor to change instances of the referred filename in the broken wireframe to uppercase.

Nathanael, sorry this isn't working for you. I tried reproducing this and it worked great for me. It might be that I am on the pre-release version. What version are you using? Would you be willing to maybe try it out with a pre-release version and see if it works for you? If you want, you can always go back to the officially released version easily. Let me know!
