Marvel Now Supports Fixed Header and Footers For Mobile and Web Prototypes!

Posted 4 years ago by Murat Mutlu

It seems like every other day we get emails requesting the ability to set fixed headers and footers in your prototypes.. well I’m happy to announced that you can now fix headers and footers across both mobile AND web!

In the past fixed header and footers were typically used in apps, but it’s becoming more and more common for websites to use it for navigation too. So we decided to make the feature work across all types of prototypes.

The aim of Marvel is to quickly turn images into prototypes that look and feel like the real thing, fixed areas help add that extra bit of realism.

Check out the example below to see how it looks when you select a fixed header area. As you can see the blue top navigation bar remains static as the rest of the image scrolls underneath.

It’s really easy to add the area you want to fix. Head over to the editor and you’ll notice two handles either side of your image, simply grab the handles and drag to define the section.

And there you have it!

We’ll be improving the feature over the next couple of weeks, if you have any suggestions or spot any bugs let us know!
