ForeUI V1.07 Released!

This version bring us four new features:

1. Multipage Exporting:

Now we can export  the multipage mockup to images with only one action.


2. Export to More Image Formats:

Now we can export mockup to PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP and WBMP images.


3. New Element — Triangle:

It is useful when we want to create irregular shapes in our prototype.


4. CTRL+ENTER to Finish Multirow Text Editing:

It is a small enhancement, when we are editing singlerow text, we can always press ENTER to finish editing.  But if we press ENTER in multirow text editor, it will just move the caret  to the next line.   Now we can press CTRL+ENTER to finish editing for multirow text editor.

ForeUI V1.05 Released!

Hello all, today we released the V1.05 of ForeUI!   This version bring us two new features:  multiple pages support and version checking.  Four bugs are also fixed in this version.

Multiple Pages

Now we can create several pages mockup within a plot.  You can click the pages button at the bottom to launch the pages management:


After clicking this button, the pages management window will popup:


We can add, duplicate, rename, move and delete the page here.  The pages can be organized with flat or hierachical structure.  The hierachical structure is very suitable for website mockups, since it looks like a site map.  This version also enclosed a new sample mockup: multipage.4ui.  It is a website mockup and contains 6 pages:

ForeUI V1.00 Released!


It’s my pleasure to announce that ForeUI V1.00 is released today!

By releasing alpha and beta version of this product, we got a lot of feedbacks, thus we can improve this product a lot in the official release.  Hereon, we must offer our heartfelt thanks to all friends that gave us feedbacks.

Comparing with beta, there are lots of enhancements and new features present in this version.  The most interesting one is the image drag and drop feature.  I have post a blog about image usage in ForeUI before, now it will be more flexible to use image by drag and drop feature:  it allow us to drag image from image dock to the plot, the image can be drag into element too.  The GIF animation below shows the details:

drag_imageOf course, as we promised before, the Mac OS X UI theme is available in this version.
