Widget events: OnDoubleClick, OnContextMenu (right-click), OnMouseDown, OnMouseUp, OnMouseMove, OnMouseHover, OnLongClick (Tap and Hold), OnKeyDown, OnKeyUp.


Dynamic Panels have mouse and keyboard events.


Page events: OnWindowResize, OnWindowScroll and the mouse and keyboard events.


Math, string, boolean and date operations. Too many to list here. Think JavaScript.


Ability to refer to 'This Widget' in various interactions and conditions, i.e. Set text on This or Hide This.


Options when showing and hiding widgets to bring to front, treat as flyout, collapse/expand widgets below, and treat as lightbox.


Conditions to check if a widget is selected and to evaluate the key that was pressed for keyboard events.


All widgets can be hidden, moved, or brought to front (not only panels).


Preview opens the current page in the browser and generates pages on-demand.


Add web fonts and font mappings.


Toolbar for selecting adaptive views, toggling footnotes, highlighting active elements, and searching the sitemap.


Variables can be set to default values.


HTML5 doctype.


Borders render within the dimensions of the widget for accurate dimensions.


Add borders, rounded corners, and set opacity on Images.


Apply outer, inner, and text shadows.


Select typefaces beyond bold and italic.


Page background images can be set to Stretch to Cover and Stretch to Contain.


Text Fields and Text Areas can have a Hint with Hint Style.


Text Field Types: email, number, phone number, url, search.


New shapes: paragraph (text panel replacement), H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6, heart, plus, star, arrows, speech bubble.


Shapes can be set to auto fit height and width of the text in the shape.


Shapes and images can be selected by default.


Dynamic Panels have an option to fit to content.


Dynamic Panel states have background colors and images.


Dynamic Panels can be set to 100% wide.


Dynamic Panels can trigger the interactions styles on the contained widgets. I.e. MouseOver on the panel makes all widgets inside show their MouseOver style.


Ability to crop images.


Droplist height can be edited.


All widgets can be set hidden by default.


Pages in the sitemap and widgets in custom widget libraries can be organized into folders.


Sitemap shortcuts for adding pages (ctrl+enter), moving pages (ctrl+arrow / tab / shift+tab), and searching (start typing).


Widget Properties and Style pane displays widget properties which previously only existed in the context menu.


Widget Manager (replaces the dynamic panel manager) and lists all of the widgets on the page.


The main menu and context menus have been reorganized.


Double-click resize handles on shapes and panels to fit to the text height / width or content respectively.


Reorganized case editor actions


Ability to duplicate Dynamic Panel states


Undo works after switching away and back to a page


Ctrl+tab & ctrl+shift+tab move forward / back in screen history


Create a dataset and a diagram that repeats based on the dataset.


Use interactions to add, update, and delete items in the dataset.


Use interactions to filter, sort, and paginate the Repeater.


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.

Version (PC &  Mac)

April 18, 2012 (free update for everyone)

New Features:

     • Text Links in rich text that can have interactions and annotations

     • Default styles for Text Links including default Mouse Over and Mouse Down styles

     • Rotating shapes and images (not text yet, but hopefully before the final release)

     • Assign Submit Button on form fields so pressing Enter clicks the assigned submit button

     • Pin to Browser on dynamic panels to make fixed position elements

     • Scroll to image map region can be animated

     • Built in variables (like GenMonth) can be used in expressions

     • Expressions can be used for the x and y values in the Move Panel action

     • New built-in variables for drag and drop: DragX, DragY, TotalDragX, TotalDragY, DragTime

     • Can select “value” on the left side of a condition so you can compare one expression to another

     • Text fields and text areas can be transparent

     • Arrow button shape (like iOS buttons)

     • Can read text values from rich text panels in interactions

     • New options in "Set Panel state(s) to State(s)" action: next, previous, value (by index or name,

       i.e., you can use a variable or a calculated value)

Mobile App Features:

     • New OnSwipeLeft & OnSwipeRight events

     • Add app icons and splash screen

     • Options to hide the address bar and browser navigation

     • Block the page from scrolling

     • Inertial dynamic panel scrolling (for iOS 5)

     • Ability to format status bar style

     * For example you can build more mobile app-like prototypes: Bookmark the prototype page on your

       iPhone and you'll see the icon on your home screen. When you click the icon, it loads a splash

       screen and launch the prototype full screen (without the browser navigation and with and a

       translucent status bar). Scrolling panel scrolls like native page scrolling, and dragging the widgets

       does not pull the page off the edges.

Editing Enhancements:

     • Snap to Objects with option to snap to padding

     • Remember collapsed states and scroll location of interaction pane after editing a case

     • Double-clicking an action to edit it opens the case editor to that action selected

     • Search while choosing a page for a link

     • Search while choosing a widget for conditions and setting values

     • Increased the canvas size to 20,000 x 20,000 pixels

     • Drag and drop image files from Windows Explorer or Finder to the diagram

     • Convert to Dynamic Panel maintains interactions

     • Text can now be more easily selected and copied from button shapes in the prototype

     • Ability to upload to AxShare directly from Axure RP

     • Variables set in pages within inline frames are also set on the parent page

Flow Diagram Enhancements

     • Connectors draw a hop when they intersect each other

     • Connectors try to preserve their shape once they’ve been manually edited

     • Option to use rounded turns on connectors

     • New line ends with crossbars

     • Stacked flow shapes like stacked files or rectangles
