It would be awesome to have the possibility to save global components o be able to reuse them all over the place in different wireframes.
Something like a design system, with master components that replicate the changes everywhere they are used. It would save soooo much time and avoid copy-pasting madness.
It would be a great feature. I’m currently looking at it .
This is my use case:
I’m doing architecture design and I have different boards.
Each board show a level of detail of the application.
I would like the feature for:
- Use the same legend block across all boards.
- I want to use an element of the board 1 in a board 2 to get keep the explanation of the connections between the 2.
Another big YES as I’m crawling through the feedback here.
I miss this immensely from Balsamiq (they had Symbols): Symbols - Balsamiq for Desktop Documentation | Balsamiq
A big detail that could possibly get overlooked: Not only saving the groups as reusable components, but tracking changes applied to the parent and applying them to the children.
Every time I have to make a change on a tab bar or menu that’s on every frame… I have to change one by one
@dgovergun not sure if you’re doing this already, but something that makes copy/pasting across frames a bit less tedious is to:
- copy an item
- select the frame you’re going to paste to
- ctrl+v to paste (windows)
With step 2, Whimsical places the copied item in the same place on the new frame as it was on the old frame.
I know… But if I have 15 or 20 wireframes for an app… It still sucks!
for sure! That’s why I liked your reply.
Was hoping I could help make it a little less sucky for ya
Oh yes, please! Lack of reusable components is the main reason I have to use Figma for wireframing.
