      Thank you for your critique and understanding.

      We feel your pain! And we do have big plans to improve this. Yes, it's been 4 months since we officially started to sell Indigo, and as you are aware we trying to add both depth and breadth to the product. For example, the prototypes created run on pure HTML and CSS.

      So you see, we are moving in that direction gradually. Since current cross-platform technology affects the core of the app functionality, we are approaching it very deliberately.

          We just released version history for prototypes on indigodesigned.com. This means that you can publish and continue replacing prototypes at will. If for some reason you want to go back to an older version of the prototype, you can do so from the share.

          Using the more options "..." button from the share details to access version history.

            Agreed. We are working on making the IX-Flow refresh faster and smarter.

            Even after we improve the performance, there may still be situations where it will hit some unknown limit based on the complexity of the screens being designed.

            Two suggestions that may work in the interim:

            1. Turn off thumbnails on the IX flow view. You will still be able to get a preview on hover.
            See image: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1047885/Shared%20Images/toggle%20thumbnails.png

            2. Break up a complex state flow into small dedicated flows. When you do this, Indigo Studio automatically creates a navigate to link, and preserves any animations present.

              We are planning on having a way to search for elements in the elements and layers panel.

              Recently we inverted the ordering of elements such it it reflects how elements were added. Most recent on top, as opposed to showing a document outline.

              We also improved the icons for lock and hide.

              We won’t be supporting multiple elements on the same layer :(

              If you group UI elements together using ctrl+G or cmd+G (mac), you will be able to manage and move them together. Any reason this does not work?

                Hi, Joe.
                Can you share an image communicating your idea just to make sure we are on the same page?

                  HI!

                  Let's see if we understood the requirement correctly. Say you have a switch with an on/off state. You have it designed as a screenpart, and by default it's OFF. When added to a new screen, everything looks as it's supposed to.

                  What you want to also do is when the button is tapped or clicked, you want to set it to ON state, which happens currently as it's part of the screenpart state (when running the prototype). But you would also like to trigger a screen interaction such that button is ON + navigate to screen/go to a screen. Related to this, you may want to set the switch screenpart in the ON state by default.

                  If this is the correct scenario, setting a state of the screenpart is not yet in the product. But we have plans to do this. The moment we have a working version, we can ping you for feedback. On the other hand, if we missed answering your question, do jump in and help us understand it better.

                    Hi,

                    We also added the ability to dock the properties panel. Does that help in the mean time?

                    Hi,
                    We recently added some smarts to automatically hide the property windows when attempting to multi-select items. Is that helping this situation in anyway?

                      Hi, Ben.

                      How will you make use of rotation, in the context of interaction prototyping?Is it mainly it for icons and sometimes text, or is there a broader application of this capability?

                      Hi Anil,

                      Okay, good to know you still want specific angle support. Indigo Studio's primary focus (at least for V1) was rapid, lo-fi prototyping. As such, being able to specify or see specific angle values did not seem important--if it looks right, it's fine, would be the rule. However, we know 45/diagonal angles are useful for quick stuff, so we have that supported.

                      About how we help users:
                      1) In the Help & About pane under menu, we list "Handy Keyboard Shortcuts" along with a link to all shortcuts. The last one in that list is the one I mentioned here.
                      2) In addition to the intro vids, we cover a lot of other stuff in our docs, also linked from the Help & About pane up top: http://indigo.infragistics.com/help/
                      3) We also strategically insert important guidance in the tool--such as the invitations here and there on how to do things like add elements in place, add stuff to storyboard blocks, warnings/tips, and so on.

                      With powerful tools like Indigo, it is always a balance between telling people important stuff up front and then easing them into everything else as they go along. Seeing specific angle info did not register on our radar until now as something important for Indigo users.

                      HTH.

                      Thanks, Anil. I agree that would be helpful.

                      BTW, if you hold down Shift while rotating, it will snap to 45 degree angles. Does that help, or do you need to replicate very specific angles in your work?

                      @Rusil Patel Not quite what we had in mind. What you suggest sound like an idea on it's own. We were referring to the ability to rotate objects in design time.

                        Agreed, Nicholas! What we need is model that will let a user populate the icon chooser as opposed to Indigo team adding more icons. As we all know, one can never have enough icons to suit every mood :D.

                        Furthermore, we need them to the vector/svg to be style-able. So yes, it's something we definitely want to do. We are currently researching ways to include icon fonts as we are working on other features.

                        Thank you for the suggestion.

                        Yes, Noun project is becoming popular, but it's not free. Those that are free, require attribution. In the meantime, we will look into how you as designers can include their icons in a vector format, and modify the colors when using it in prototypes. We will play with the noun project SVG icons to see where it takes us.

                        Hi, Jan.

                        When we added icons to Indigo studio, we tried to make sure that all the icons are of the same style/family. As you have noticed, all of them are vector. Furthermore, the groups are facets (not mutually exclusive).

                        That said, we understand the need to include icon packs you may already own and use it in prototypes. However, not all icon designers make their SVG icons the same way. Which means that fill colors may not give the desired effect.

                        We want to support importing icons, so everyone interested should continue to vote on this. We'll investigate how we can be make it easier for you to import and use your icons.

                        Let me see if I understand. The goal is to be able to select multiple image files, then have those show up as icons for that project? I suppose we'd also need to let you supply keywords for each so they match when searching, then have a "My Icons" category we stick all these in or something.

                        Or you just want to be able to pick image files directly from the icon control?

                        Indigo Studio TeamAdminIndigo Studio Team (Product Team, Indigo Studio) commented  · 

                        We currently support this through just using the Image control. Is this not sufficient? What more would you want to support other icons?

                          Hi, Jon.

                          We currently support exporting interaction flows as a PDF.
                          https://indigo.infragistics.com/help/exporting-designs-to-pdf.html

                          You can also export the the screens and screen states as images. For presentation, the interactive version can be made available offline. However, sharing it on indigodesigned.com is easier. Furthermore, the reviewers will be able to add comments to the prototype (very soon).

                          How do you see word format aiding your development or communication efforts? Can you share an example?

                            I may be misunderstanding the scenario. Correct me if that is the case.

                            There are two ways to adjust visibility of a UI element. One is by manipulating the transparency slider. But this approach does not remove the UI element.

                            The other way is to use the explicit hide option. Which is the “eye” in the property panel. You can also right click on top of a UI element and access hide/unhide from the context menu.

                            Hi, Gil.

                            If I understood the attached image correctly, you have a screenpart that's been placed on top of the current view, and you have set the transparency to 100% so that it's not visible. I take it when pressing #1, the screenpart which was not visible earlier is now shown, and in the process covers #2.

                            Have you already tried hiding it instead instead of using the transparency slider?
                            PROPERTIES ----> HIDE | LOCK
                            Hide is represented by the "eye" icon.

                            To show it again, you can right click in the same area, and find it in the list of "elements under the cursor" to toggle the visibility again.

                            If I have misunderstood, can you shoot an email to indigo@infragistics.com so that we can take a deeper dive?

                              Hi,

                              Can you share some details on what type of custom HTML? What would be a good example?

                                Agreed! Thank you for the suggestion. We add this preference very soon.

                                  Is the issue resolved if highlighting is no triggered? I am assuming you are attempting simulate the drag/swipe while on desktop.

                                    Hi, Reiss.

                                    Did you mean add a delay or an activity indicator before processing to the next state or screen? Timings for transitions are all governed in the timeline.

                                    Can you share a scenario so that we can understand it better?

                                      Agreed and we understand the need.

                                      For the time-being, you can add the image inside a container and use the container to clip the image. You can also add rounding to the container. We'll post a link to a how-to topic soon.

                                        Hi, Bruce.

                                        Are you referring to viewing the prototype on the desktop browser? I only ask because when viewed on the device, the scrollbars are not shown.

                                        Try this prototype on your device:
                                        http://indigo.infragistics.com/prototype/mymoney#f=iphone5/money%20app

                                        it should look like this:

                                            What if we get rid of rectangles altogether and always offer container? ;)
