Shared prototypes: the workspace
When working with Shared prototypes, Justinmind’s user interface will get some additional elements. Let’s see how all these feature controls are distributed.
Here you can find the most basic operations, such as:
1. Open shared prototype: opens a Shared prototype, selected from a list of all the Shared prototypes you have access to.
2. New Shared Prototype: create a new Shared prototype from scratch.
This menu gathers all share-related operations:
- Open shared prototype: opens a Shared prototype selected from a list of all the shared prototypes you have access to
- Share protoype: shares the currently opened prototype
- Manage shared prototypes: from here you can change the properties of the Shared prototypes you own, or that are stored in your account
- Add/remove users: here you can specify which users can edit the current Shared prototype
- View locked elements: displays the locked elements of the current Shared prototype, and which user has locked them
- Commit all: uploads all the local changes made on the current Shared prototuype
- Update all: uploads all the changes made by other users to the currently opened prototype
- Discard all changes: discards all local changes and gets a clean copy from the server
- Unlock all: unlocks all locked elements
- Show history: displays the current prototype’s commit history. From here it’s possible to see all revisions and create new prototypes from them
- Close prototype: closes the current Shared prototype
Element contextual Menu
Every ‘lockable’ element has to be locked/unlocked using the relevant operations provided in its contextual menu. The menu has the following operations:
- Commit: uploads only the local changes of the selected element and all its dependencies (if any)
- Discard changes: discards only the local changes of the selected element
- Lock/Unlock: lock or unlock the selected element
