Use Axure RP as:
Define adaptive views based on browser width and/or height.
Adaptive views inherit from one another so a change to the location, size, or style of a widget in the parent view affects its children, but a change in the child view does not affect the parent.
Editing a widget's text, interactions, and other widget properties affects the widget in all views. The widget is the same widget across views (not a copy) so you only have to update the property once.
The prototype switches views based on the browser size.

What we need to know
...in with the new
BETA versions expire, but a valid version will be available until the final release
Borders are drawn differently
This is a BETA :)
There will be bugs. We'll do our best to publish fixes quickly, but we do not recommend using it on time sensitive projects.
7.0 files will not open in earlier versions, but earlier files will open in 7.0. Files created in the beta will be compatible with the final release.
The beta versions are time-limited but you will be able to download new versions until the final release is available. Your license key will not work in the beta.
In new version 7 files, borders on shapes and images are drawn within the bounds of the widget. A rectangle that is 100 px wide will be 100 px wide regardless of border thickness. In version 6.5 and below, a 100 px wide rectangle was 101 px wide or more depending on the border. You can change that option in Project -> Project Settings.
Ver. 18.104.22.16800 (4/18/2012)
Chat with us on the forum!
We'll also be posting examples and tutorials of the new features.
