Antetype 1.5 – Responsive

We are proud to announce the release of Antetype 1.5.

This release has been in BETA for nearly two months and we feel it is ready for prime-time!


The headline features for the 1.5 release relate to responsive design. We have added two new features to properly support designing responsive prototypes.resizing

Layout wrapping

The first feature is that containers can now be configured so that their contents will wrap onto a new line when there is not enough space. This works in a way very similar to text wrapping.

Design Breakpoints

The second feature enables designers to setup design breakpoints for their documents. This means that at certain widths the designer can trigger changes to happen to the design. The style changes are applied using special breakpoint states that can be enabled for each widget on the screen. This approach means that any style property can be changed at a particular width. We recommend watching the new tutorial on responsive designs

You can read more about the responsive features in the preview post from March.

Easier to Learn

Antetype 1.5 has updated tutorial files in the getting started section. Each tutorial is now accompanied by video, text and images to help you get up to speed with Antetype.

The tutorials released with Antetype 1.5 are:

  • Getting Started – concepts used in Antetype
  • Layout – how to layout a mobile website
  • Widgets – create and re-use a widget
  • Interactions – add interactions to our mobile website
  • Responsive – make our mobile website respond to changes in width

Multi Screen Select

As a by product of the changes we have made for responsive designs we have also included the ability to select multiple screens. This is useful not only to change the size of multiple screens but also to copy, paste and delete multiple screens.
