Tips and Tricks
Did you know that you can publish an RP file to multiple Axure Cloud links? This can be helpful when you want to maintain different versions of a prototype for different audiences, such as your design team, your developers, and your stakeholders.
"Hide from View" lets you completely hide any dynamic panel, master, or widget group on the canvas so that you can interact with the rest of the design as though the hidden element weren't there. This allows for easy access to widgets sitting behind the hidden element, and the element will still appear in the web browser as normal.
Axure RP's team projects feature is what separates the middle-tier Team Edition from the Pro Edition. If you have the Team Edition—or the top-tier Enterprise Edition, which also includes the team projects feature—are you getting the most out of your team projects? Read on for some superuser tips.
There's something so satisfying about a fun and playful one-page website. And these days, the feelings of playfulness and engagement produced by a good one-pager are often enhanced using scroll effects—special movement or visibility behaviors that happen as a reaction to you, the visitor, scrolling down the page. Scroll effects are easy to achieve in Axure RP using the conditional logic feature.
Did you know that Axure RP makes it easy to store user-entered data and then reuse it across widgets and pages in your prototype? There are actually several good ways to do this, but one sure-fire technique is to use a variable.
Welcome back to The Blank Page, a blog series where we explore ways to kick the blank page blues. In the past we've explored cutting up a screenshot and throwing together a quick static wireframe. Today I'll be showcasing a powerful and, in my opinion, underutilized method for getting your project started in Axure RP: the auto-generated flow diagram.
I've never been much of a draftsperson. Precise linework isn't really my area of expertise. More of a tracing guy, really. All of which is why I love shape transforms, which were introduced in Axure RP 8 but continue to be a lesser-known feature.
This guide pulls together a number of accessibility issues worthy of your consideration as you develop your next Axure RP prototype, along with some simple steps you can take in the tool to pilot your project toward an outcome that's more friendly for all types of people to consume.
For this installment of our Easy Conditions blog series, I want to look at how conditions work together with masters. I've put together a pretty standard three-page prototype in order to demonstrate what I'll be discussing, as shown in the animation below. And I've built it two different ways: one example uses conditions, and the other does not.
