One of our main goals for Axure RP 9 was to make dynamic panels easier and more intuitive to work with, so we made dynamic panel states editable inline, right where they are on the canvas. Not only does this make editing states quicker, it allows you to see a state's contained widgets directly in the context of your full design.
Now more than ever, shipping software products that win customers requires the combined strengths of business, design, and technology professionals. Keeping everyone moving together toward a shared goal, however, is a struggle that too many projects face. This is why we're so excited to introduce the new Axure platform today.
Users love simple and intuitive products, but the design process required to get there takes considerable thought and judgement. When you’re starting work on a new software product or a new feature, the prototyping stage is a critical step, as it enables you to test product concepts before investing the effort to build them out.
Project overviews for RP 9 files now include a thumbnail preview of each page; and you can extract style and layout information from the widgets in your designs.
Axure RP 9 will officially launch in just a few short weeks! If you want to get a head start on upgrading your existing perpetual licenses or purchasing some new ones, you can do that now.
Prototypes are handy as internal deliverables that communicate your ideas visually and interactively. But if that’s all you’re using them for, you’re missing out on the benefits they can offer in the form of user feedback. Conducting user testing with your prototypes is valuable because you can’t be sure you have a winning design until you have real data to back it up.
Our goal for Axure RP 9 was to modernize Axure RP’s workflows, capabilities, and interface. Nearly every area of the tool has been touched to make prototyping in Axure RP more efficient and intuitive. With that same goal in mind, we've also made some big changes to Axure Share.
Thanks to customer feedback, we've improved on inline editing, interaction building, and more since the initial RP 9 Beta release. Today, we're introducing one of the most requested enhancements: a dark UI mode to complement dark mode on the latest macOS and Windows operating systems.
