How to open more than one prototype at a time

Ahmad Salman shared this question 4 years ago

I am trying to open multiple prototype at one time. My aim is to reuse what I did in the previous prototypes; that is, I just want to copy and paste some buttons with there actions or other components in the page.

Hi Ahmad,

There are two ways of doing this (I assume you are on a Mac just as me, since according to JIM Support you can open several files in Windows).

You can do this:

You can open multiple files in Windows just by double-clicking on the .vp files. Mac opens the same Prototyper instead. We are in our way to fix it but meanwhile you can use this clunky workaround:

- Copy your Justinmind Prototyper app with another name.

- Open the first .vp as you always do

- In Finder, press ctrl+click in the other .vp file and select Open with > (the name of the Prototyper app copied).

That way you will have two Prototypers with a prototype open each.

(from this thread: )

Or you can import your previous prototype into your open prototype by doing this:


By importing you have a lot of options and if you make a "template" prototype, this can save you quite some time. I hope this helps.
