Password protection for uploaded links

There is now a possibility to password protect uploaded links. Uploaded links are already secure by themselves since the link cannot be guessed. However for additional security you can now set a password that will be required to view the uploaded storyboard.

Link password protection

You can also set or change the password at some later point while updating the story, effectively removing access to the link for clients not having the new passwords.

Hello everyone!

Today’s release improves command line support, updates to Eclipse 4.16 platform, and includes a few other improvements and bug-fixes. Read on for more details.

Improved command line

This version improves command line support in the standalone version. Command line support allows to automate the export of screen and story files to different formats.

Now on Windows there is a dedicated executable named WireframeSketcherc.exe (note the “c” character at the end of the file name) which allows WireframeSketcher to be launched from the command prompt and observe the console output. This was already possible on other platforms (using WireframeSketcher executable), but now proper command line support is also available on Windows.

Launching the following command to export a single screen file to PDF:

WireframeSketcherc.exe -application com.wireframesketcher.ui.screenExport ^
-data %USERPROFILE%\WireframeSketcher ^
-noSplash ^
-source %USERPROFILE%\WireframeSketcher\wireframing-tutorial\Mockup.screen ^
-dest %USERPROFILE%\export ^
-format PDF

will export the file and produce the following output:

Exporting 1 file to PDF
Exporting /wireframing-tutorial/Mockup.screen to C:\Users\MyUser\export\Mockup.pdf

Note that if you use WireframeSketcher plugin for Eclipse then you can always run the same command using eclipsec.exe executable (or eclipse on other platforms).

Please check the command line user guide for more details.

Hello everyone!

Today’s release adds support for auto-save, updates to Eclipse 4.15 platform, and includes a few other improvements and bug-fixes. Read on for more details.

Auto-save

A frequently requested functionality for WireframeSketcher is automatic save of modified files. Auto-save helps to prevent situations where unsaved changes to your files are lost because of a computer crash.

The new version of WireframeSketcher enables auto-save by default. You can enable/disable auto-save in WireframeSketcher’s preferences:

Auto-save

This option is only available in the standalone version of WireframeSketcher. If you are using the Eclipse plug-in then you can enable the same functionality using Window > Preferences > General > Editors > Autosave preference page.

Note that the auto-save is only triggered after some period of inactivity, meaning that there is no keyboard or mouse activity for some predefined time. This means that if you need for some changes to be reflected immediately in a linked file then you’ll still need to save your changes manually.

Eclipse 4.15 support

We’ve updated the standalone version of WireframeSketcher to this more recent platform so that you can benefit from various improvements and bug-fixes.
