Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.

Commenting prototype?

Hi there,

I am fully aware that prototype questions are many in this discussion
list, but I would like to focus on something specific:

What would you recommend for allowing clients to put comments
directly on your prototype?

I am thinking of the functionality you have in Adobe Acrobat
Professional, where you can add notes to an existing document. I'd
like to use a wireframe/prototyping tool that allows for this.

Axure seems like a good tool, but doesn't seem to have commenting
ability unfortunately. Am I right about this?

What to use for rapidly generating HTML prototypes from concept model diagrams to test interactive search.

Anyone know of a tool that can generate static, linked html pages from
a concept model diagram? The tool needs to be a concept model diagram
creation tool that generates individual html pages that are linked
together. The goal being that if you were to reorganize the concept
model diagram, the tool can regenerate html pages with the new links.
This is needed for rapidly creating HTML prototypes in order to test
interactive search.

Axure Pattern Library

I've created a small pattern library for Axure containing some useful
widgets and interactions. If you use Axure, or would like to see what kind
of prototypes it generates, take a look:

Does anyone have their own patterns that they would like to post? I would
also be interested in knowing if anyone found this useful.

Any experience with Axure RP?

Good day -

I'm a partner in a small interaction design shop in San Francisco. I'm
currently doing all prototype work as HTML (using Dreamweaver) which works
great for low- and medium-fidelity deliverables, and plan on continuing
using HTML.

My clients, mostly startups, have been requesting more logic-based
functionality in prototypes recently.

Pros and Cons of Wireframing tools

Hi All,

My team is evaluating wireframing tools, and I would love to get some
feedback from this list. Things tend to be leaning towards Visio at the
moment. Being a designer, I'm not too thrilled at the idea of using

Rapid Prototyping Tools


I am looking for a tool that would essentially allow me to make a "paper
prototype" that I can share with a remote participant. I have been
using DENIM ( which does everything I
need. I am looking for an alternative because of performance issues.
Any recommendations?
