Check out the following release notes to stay up to date on the latest new features, improvements, and bug fixes.
December 15, 2020
- Introducing Handoff
- Click the new Handoff button in the top toolbar and grab Styles and CSS code for objects on the page. This is useful when you’re working on a proof of concept with graphic designers and developers. These specifications can help create a base for further development and provide a quick sense of how page elements will look once implemented.
- New Notes button in the top toolbar
- Don’t wait to annotate! The new Notes button makes it easy for each team member to add ideas, requirements or specifications on the run. Make live collaboration more efficient, annotate super-fast, and make sure that important details don’t fall between the cracks.
- And, keep hitting the Note button to instantly populate your virtual whiteboard with side-by-side Stickies – and get right into brainstorming!
- Eye-catching colors for Sticky Notes
- We’ve made it easier to color-code annotations on your whiteboard or design! Use the Shades button to choose between pastel and new, vibrant tones. And click the handy pin button to toggle stickiness on and off.
- Replace images with just a click
- Select an image on the page, and you’ll find our new Replace Image button in the Contextual Toolbar. Click it to swap in an image from your computer. And, don’t forget, you can also replace an image by dragging and dropping a new one from the library or your computer.
- Custom padding for text stencils
- You can now adjust the padding for most text-stencils bound by a stroke-line: Button, Combo Box, Text Area, Text Input, Date Picker, Stepper, Note.
- When you select any of these objects on the page, the Padding section will automatically appear in the Format panel. Here you can adjust the horizontal and vertical padding for all four sides of the object – or use the icon in the middle to sync the padding settings.
- New toolbar for grouping and alignment
- The Group button has left the top toolbar… and joined our alignment tools in a handy Contextual Toolbar. Just select more than one object to make grouping, ungrouping, and alignment a breeze.
- Want to flatten a group by unpacking nested groups and creating a single-layer? Now, a single keystroke will do it: Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + Alt/Option + G.
- Forced Single Sign On
- In order to provide an additional layer of account security, Moqups admins (team owners) can now require all their team members to use an SSO option, either via Google, OneLogin, or Okta. Enabling the Force SSO Authentication option means that password-only login will be disabled for all team members.
- Language localization expands
- Willkommen, benvenuto, bienvenido! You can now change your interface language to German, Italian, or Spanish. And there are more languages on the way. Look for Russian, French, and Portuguese in the coming months!
- 1000s of icons and an improved library
- We’ve added AWS, Azure, Feather, and Emoji icon kits, and expanded our Material Design, Font Awesome, Hawcons, and Bootstrap sets. New themes, categories, tags, and a speed bump all make it easier and faster to find what you need! Read all about the new Icon Library in our It's Raining Icons! blog post.

- The Stencil Library’s new ‘Callouts & Annotations’ category includes the versatile Callout, as well as newly added Bracket, Speech Bubble, and Thought Bubble stencils.

- Use the Component button in the Top Toolbar, or the Component section of the right-click Context Menu, to create a Component from any selected object or group.
- The Component acts as the master to any and all copies – or Instances – that are made from that component.

- ‘Go to Master Component’ will take you to its location, allowing you to make changes to that Component and all of its Instances.

- In the Outline Panel, click the Lock button to the right of the object name; the button will darken when locked.
- Use the right-click Context Menu to choose the Lock/Unlock Selection option, or use the Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl/Cmd + L (this keystroke works for both Lock and Unlock).

- ‘Set as Default Style’ in Context Menu:
- Now you can style an Object (or Connector), and then use the right-click Context Menu to set that customization as the Default Style for subsequent objects; it does not affect the style of objects that you’ve already added to the page. This makes it easy to customize a string of objects and/or connectors, and then quickly jump to a new default style, and so on.
- To help our Support Team effectively address your issue, you can now attach relevant files to the Contact Support form.

- Snap to page’s Center/Edge over snap to Object.
- You can now drag and resize a page ‘through’ an object ( i.e. when an object sits in front of the page-resize handles).

- Fixed several issues with the Smart Connect and Replace Stencil features.
- Fixed a bug that canceled image uploads if the user used drag-&-drop, and then switched pages before the upload was complete.
- Previously, if you expanded a folder (or a series of nested pages) in the Pages Panel, that action accidentally expanded all the folders and nested pages within that Page Tree.
- Using Shift + Clicking on the Zoom Icon automatically zooms in or out to fit the page within the Editor (or Viewer) window; that zoom now also correctly centers the page.

- Diagram Extenders:
- Selecting a Flowchart Diagram stencil on the page will reveal arrows on all four sides of that object. Clicking on any arrow will duplicate that object, automatically connect them, and then open the new object’s text-edit mode for quick renaming.
- For lighting-fast, omnidirectional work, Shift + Alt/Option + Arrow keys also adds and connects objects.
- When there is an object immediately adjacent from the one you are ‘extending’, clicking the extenders – or using the keystroke – will automatically connect those two objects.
- Replace Stencils:
- You can quickly update and replace any Flowchart Diagram stencils that are already part of a diagram on the page. Just drag the new stencil over an existing one, and drop when the ‘replace’ icon appears.
- Swap Start & End Markers:
- Hold down Shift + X to reverse the start and end markers of any connector; this is the same keystroke that reverses the Fill and Stroke style when an object is selected.
- Connector Styling:
- Now, after you style a connector, any subsequent connector you create will automatically adopt that style – until you change it again.
- Previously, if you wanted to mass-style connectors that were already on the page, you had to select them individually; now selecting a group of objects and connectors will reveal the ‘Connector Style’ section of the Format Panel, and let you customize all the selected connectors at once.
