  • Skins – You can switch among a dozen available skins, including black & white.
  • Slideshow – Slideshow mode is designed for presentations or live workshops.
  • Interactivity – Links provide some interactivity for slideshow and HTML exports.
  • Annotations – You annotate your mockups to discuss them or document them.
  • Exports – By exporting your project to MS Word or PDF or HTML, you get both a way to share your mockups and a quick specification.
  • Masters – When you have many similar screens, you can create a Master and derive other screens from it. Common example is a web heading.
