Leave feedback for a prototype

You and your reviewers can provide feedback for a prototype directly in the SketchFlow Player using text or ink (using your mouse as a writing tool) at any time. You can also show or hide feedback for easier viewing of the prototype.

Feedback is saved automatically, and you can leave both text and ink feedback on each screen throughout the prototype. When you have finished leaving feedback, you can save the feedback as a file, and then display the feedback from the SketchFlow Player in the Microsoft Expression Blend design surface.

You can also show or hide annotations that were left in the prototype during the design process. For more information on the Annotations feature, see Annotate a document.

  • In the SketchFlow Player panel, click the Feedback tab. Click inside the text box, and begin typing.

  • In the SketchFlow Player panel, click the Feedback tab and do one of the following:
