    Thank you a lot for all recommendations
    I`ve tried to apply the 14. Highlight clickable items and had some troubles with it.
    I can`t make the hot spot visible after a project generation.
    “View->Mask->Mask Hot spot” option is checked.
    I`ve added a custom style for a Hot Spot but the “Base Style” drop-down is unavailable and always displays a “Default” style so that I can`t apply a custom style to a Hot Spot widget.

    Thanks in advance for any help on this issue.

      Hi Daria,

      The highlight interactive elements option in the lefthand sitemap (it’s a little green rectangle icon with a pointer) is now probably the best way to show clickable areas. By clicking on the icon clickable areas are highlighted in greeen. You can also now send urls with it set by appending ‘&hi=1’ to the end of the URL e.g. I think that at the time of writing the article having this highlighting option set in the URL wasn’t yet possible on Axshare.

    Neil, thanks from a newbie. I’ve had to resurrect my prototyping skills and used Axure when it first came out. I felt pretty overwhelmed beginning from scratch. There is still a lot that confounds me, but this article helped me to ground myself and not worry too much about the sophistication. Thanks especially for the tips on navigation and dynamic panels.
    Much appreciated!

    Neil, great refresher. I created a library with custom widgets but if i update the widget, it seems that that it’s not updated in those places where it was already inserted. Is there any way around this?

      Hi Frank, I don’t think so because the widget is just a copy of the master widget (i.e. your custom widget) – there is no synching between the two. You’d need to use masters and perhaps styles to ensure that changes are automatically updated.

    Do you have a tutorial on how to get illustrator files into Axure?

      Hi Ryan, you would have to export to an image file (e.g. png or jpg) to import into Axure. Axure doesn’t support native illustrator or photoshop files.
