Make it easy to change highlight colour of exported documentation

Formulate shared this idea 3 years ago
Completed

I love that you can export documentation from Justinmind, but the bright aquamarine that you use as your brand colour completely clashes with the teal green of my logo. I've tried updating everything that's aquamarine in the Word document, but it's either not possible (e.g. number markers on screenshot can't be modified) or extremely time consuming.


Would be great if there was a way to choose a highlight colour in the custom export dialog, with that colour used throughout the resulting documentation wherever aquamarine is used by default. Without this option there's just no way I can give my clients documentation produced by Justinmind and still be considered a professional designer!

Hello,


You can do so by creating a custom template. Use one of the default templates, located in [Justinmind/Justinmind Prototyper 6.4.1/templates] and change the coloured items you want (preserving the tag fields of the template). Once done so, save the new template with a different name and, when exporting a document, select 'Customized document' - 'Contents' - 'User defined' and choose the new created template.

Hi Lidia


Thanks for the info.


I don't have the folder you refer to. In /Justinmind there is only one folder: 6.4.0. And within that folder, the only folders I have are:


- backups


- configuration


- etc


- tmp


- user_widgets


- work


- work0


Any ideas?


Cheers

Hi Jessica,


The installation folder i am refering to is located somewhere in [Program files/Justinmind/Justinmind 6.4.0/templates] or similar, depending on your OS. The one you are showing is the user folder where your projects are stored.


Please look for this folder and there you will find the templates folder.

Hi Lidia


I am working on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.9.5 Mavericks and I can't find that folder anywhere. I've searched my whole hard drive for folders named "templates" and the only ones it shows are within that user folder I mentioned above.


The program itself appears directly in my Applications folder – there's no folder here or any supplementary files.


Cheers,

Hi Jessica,


The templates folder on mac is /Applications/Justinmind/Contents/Resources/Java/templates


To access on it, right click on Justinmind icon on Applications folder and click 'Show package contents'.

Hi Lidia


Thanks, now I've found it.


But I have the same problem as I described originally, albeit to a slightly lesser extent. If I want the highlight colour to be my Formulate green (#2d7467) rather than the Justinmind aquamarine, I have to change every element in the template. from the latter to the former, by hand. And the numbered icons used on screenshots will still be the aquamarine.


So I reiterate my original request: would be great if we could choose a highligh colour in the dialog for creating a custom document, and have all the aquamarine replaced with that colour programmatically as the document is created.


Cheers

Hi Jessica,


Yes, that's a great suggestion. I'll forward your request to the development team as a new feature implementation for future releases.
