iRise 11.2.2 • Aug 10, 2017

  • Web Import plugin for Chrome: The Web Import plugin for the Chrome Browser allows you to import already published web pages as the basis of your prototypes. Instead of rebuilding them from scratch, you can import pages into iRise with just a few clicks. It can literally turn hours of work into a few minutes. You have two options: import a page that's created using individual widgets (which can then be edited in iRise) or as a complete single image. Once imported, you can build functionality on top of the imported page. 

  • Screen settings display: The screen type, screen alignment, and screen orientation settings now appear directly on the top toolbar so they’re always in view and easily editable.

  • New overflow/scrollbar options: There are more options for scrollbars on containers like Sections and Screens:
    Auto: automatically add a scrollbar if there is overflow content
    Yes: always show a scrollbar
    No, hide overflow: do not show a scrollbar and clip/hide any overflow content
    No, show overflow:  do not show a scrollbar, but display any overflow content (bleeding out of the container)
    No, expand to fit: do not show a scrollbar, but automatically expand the container in Player to fit overflow content

iRise 11.2 • Jun 23, 2017

  • Set screens to Fit width of the browser window: Under Settings for a Screen, you'll see a new Fit width option. The width of the screen will automatically adjust (from the width set in Editor) to the width of the browser in Player. The height of the screen will remain fixed to the height set in Editor. Use this setting to prototype fluid web pages. Use Fit to window to prototype applications with independent scrolling panels. Both the width and height of the screen will automatically adjust (from the size set in Editor) to the size of the browser in Player.

  • New size and position settings to support fluid/responsive layouts: You can now size and position elements by percentage or pixel. Elements can also be positioned relative to any edge or corner, not just positioned from the upper left corner. New layout options control how the size and position of an individual widget will adjust as it's parent container resizes. For example, you can set an element to appear 10px from the bottom right corner of a section/screen, even as the section/screen is resized.

  • Set units quickly by entering them in size and position values: You can now directly set units quickly by including “px” or “%” when setting size and position values in the Property Panel.

  • Updated Action: Jump to Widget: [Studio only] You can now jump to a widget with smooth/animated scrolling with a custom duration. This action will be added to Editor soon. 

  • Automatic Proxy configuration (PAC) : Studio has support for automatic proxy configuration in proxy settings. Studio users will have to provide their PAC url to take advantage of PAC support. 

  • Fix: For widgets without explicit dimensions (usually Text or Button widgets), the calculated width and height values in the Property Panel are now displayed as placeholder text to visually distinguish them from explicitly set values. 

  • Fix: Resolved an error that sometimes occurred when attempting to draw a TextArea or Select widget with an explicit height.

Custom Fonts! Let’s face it - typography is important. The world is full of beautiful fonts, and now you can add them to your iRise projects. With a tiny snippet of CSS, you can add web fonts or any of the 600+ Google fonts to your iRise projects. Your prototypes will never look the same.

Include external images in your prototypes

  • Now you can set an Image source via URL, instead of uploading the image file to the project. This allows you to use images from any public website or public file in Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive. That way, if the image changes, your iRise project will automatically be updated.

  • Now under Format, you can also set a the Background Image source via URL, instead of uploading the image file to the project.

Added support for background image scaling: Under the Format panel, you can control the scaling of background images:

  • Auto: Use native size of the image file (no scaling)

  • Cover: Scale the image to completely cover the background area while maintaining the aspect ratio of the image. 

  • Contain: Scale the image to the largest size such that both its width and its height can fit inside the content area

  • Stretch: Stretch the background image to completely cover the background area. 

Drag and drop in the Outline panel (and more): 

  • Finally you can drag and drop widgets in the Outline to reorder the layering. You can also move widgets in and out of containers using the Outline. 

  • The Outline correctly scrolls to show the widget selected in the workspace

  • The Outline correctly expands containers to show the widget selected in the workspace

  • Double-click to rename a widget

  • Outline search is retained when you navigate from screen to screen

  • When searching the Outline, containers with no matching children now display with a down arrow to clearly indicate there are no children

  • Outline now uses a checkbox to more clearly indicate visibility and enhance usability

Update multiple requirements at once: Now you can multi-select individual requirements (Cmd/Ctrl+Click) or a range of requirements (Shift+Click) and apply a change to any of the fields on the Details panel.

Fix: resolved an issue that sometimes caused a “Version mismatch” error message to appear in Manager.

Fix: resolved several issues that caused widget associations to show improperly under certain circumstances

Alignment guides: Temporary snap‑to guides that appear when you insert or move widgets. They help you align elements relative to other objects.

Zoom Zoom!: What's better than 100%? When it comes to zoom, just about anything. Zoom in to make detailed adjustments or zoom out to see the full screen.

Highlight active elements in Player: Reviewers can tap or click anywhere in Player to show all of the active UI elements on the screen.

Present in grayscale: Presenting in grayscale can help communicate the incomplete nature of a prototype. It can also help to reduce feedback on visual style — like colors, fonts, and graphics — and keep your audience focussed on user flows, interactions, and functionality.

New Comment and Requirement markers: Now in Player you'll see a marker on all widgets that have associated comments or requirements. 

Prototype “drag-and-drop” interactions: Enable “drag” on any Text, Image, Section, or Table element. Then use the “on drop” trigger to prototype the resulting effect. 

Fix: Resolved error that could occur when moving a requirement from one screen to another.

iRise 11.1.6 • Dec 2, 2016

User profile and Contact Cards: Add additional information to your iRise user profile, such as Title, Region, or About me. Some of this information will be displayed on your Contact Card. Also include links to your LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. 

Connect your Slack and Skype accounts: Connect your iRise profile to your Slack and Skype accounts. Once connected, your colleagues can easily click on on your Contact Card to launch a direct message or call in the desktop Slack or Skype applications.

Fix: Performance improvements for Image elements

iRise 11.1.4 Updates • Oct 19 2016

New unified navigation: The new unified navigation bar makes it much easier and faster to navigate between editing screens, previewing changes, managing requirements, and sharing with teammates. 

See your collaborators: The new unified navigation bar now displays the profile pictures or initials of the people that are currently collaborating with you in a project. After 60 seconds of inactivity, the user’s profile will disappear. More communication features will be coming soon.

New project menu: The new unified navigation bar provides Rename, Download, and Delete options when viewing a project. More options will be coming soon.

Go fullscreen: Maximize your workspace by clicking the chevron icon in the upper right corner to hide the top-level toolbar. Shift+Click to go into fullscreen mode. Note: fullscreen is not available in IE11.

Copy formatting from one widget to another: Copy a widget and then use the right-click menu to “Paste formatting” to another widget. 

Prototype basic “drag-and-drop” interactions: Enable “drag” under the Settings panel for Text, Image, Section, and Table. Then add an action to the new trigger, “on drop,” to prototype the resulting effect. Note: not all drag-and-drop settings from Studio have been ported to the web-based editor yet, but more will be coming in the future. 

Search for text in the Outline: The Outline now includes text widget contents, button labels, shape labels, and image file names, making it much easier to identify and search for widgets in the Outline. 

Unlocked data rows: “Data rows” set up in iRise Studio are no longer locked in the web-based editor.

Ability to correct spelling while editing text widgets: You can now right-click on a misspelled word while editing a Text widget to correct the spelling.

New widgets in Basic Widgets 2.7: The updated library includes: 

  • Custom Select Input - a dropdown/select control that gives you more control over the styling, such as padding and corner-radius.

  • Search Box - includes a magnifying glass icon and placeholder text

  • Button Bar (iBloc) - easily configurable, iOS-style segmented control

  • Animated Spinner (iBloc) - easily configurable spinner widget

  • Google Map (iBloc) - a live, interactive Google Map with support for multiple address pins, driving directions, and view settings.

New fonts to support wireframing: Four new “redacted” fonts are now included that obscure the text into straight blocks or scribbles so that the text is illegible, but the viewer still gets the idea of where text will be without worrying about what the text actually says.

New widget library for wireframing: The new content includes both wireframe page templates and over 50 drag-and-drop widgets allow you to quickly create dynamic wireframes.  All widgets are fully customizable, so you can also use them to create your own wireframe library widgets. The new “redacted” fonts allow you to go from wireframe block or sketch style text placeholders to real text with just a few clicks.  These fonts allow you use your wireframes as a starting point for your hi-fi mockups, instead of wasting time building them again.

Fix: Better handling of user session expiration.

You can size, position, and configure iBloc widgets using the Format Panel. You can also add actions to iBloc-specific events (or triggers). The ability to dynamically set iBloc properties with data and capture data from an iBloc widget is coming soon. 

Select all shortcut: Added Cmd+A / Ctrl+A shortcut key for “select all” children of the selected elements. Use Cmd+Shift+A / Ctrl+Shift+A to retain the original section while selecting all children.

iRise 11.1 • July 28th, 2016

Apply your own CSS: CSS is a simple language that describes how a widget should appear. Now you can apply your own CSS to any widget. This opens up the door to add as much fidelity as you need. Use it to add shadows, gradients, image borders, and more. See this example. You can also use the Format action to apply custom CSS to a widget in response to a user event, like a Click or Swipe.

Insert HTML: You can now insert HTML into any Section widget, which makes it really easy to embed maps, videos, and charts from other sites. Just grab the embed code or HTML snippet from Google Maps, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, or Google Docs and paste it into the settings for a Section. See this map example. Insert HTML is also supported in iRise Studio.

Font Awesome icon support: Editor now includes support for FontAwesome, a font that gives you access to more than 600 scalable vector icons that you can easily size, color, flip, and rotate. To insert, just copy any icon from and paste it into a Text or Button widget. Then apply the FontAwesome font. In an upcoming release, we will add a native icon picker directly in Editor.

No more chapter lock-out: If you’re using Studio to add dynamic data and logic to your prototypes, but still want to use Editor to make updates, iRise 11.1 makes things much easier for you. Screens and Masters with unsupported (Studio) content are no longer completely locked. Only the unsupported widgets are locked, so you can make changes to the rest of the page.

Lock aspect ratio: You can now lock the aspect ratio for most widgets. If you change one dimension (height or width), the other dimension will automatically be changed to maintain the shape and proportions.

“Empty view” support: Now Viewstacks containing an “Empty view” are supported, no longer locking the Viewstack from updates. When creating Viewstacks, you can now create an "Empty view" which can be used as an invisible view or as a placeholder for another widget.

Copy to another project: You can now copy screens, masters, and widgets to another project.

Copy actions: You can now copy and paste actions from one widget to another. Copy a single action or the entire action sequence.

Animation option for Format Action: When using a Format action, you can now choose to animate the transition over a specified time period.

New Basic Widgets Library (v2.6): This updated library contains a few new widgets that will save you time: FontAwesome Text, FontAwesome Button, Lightbox Dark, Lightbox Light, Map, Video, Audio, Google Chart, and iframe. Give them a try.

iRise 11.0.4 • June 22nd, 2016
