There are three modes in the design section, namely “Comment, Review, Development”. This one-page document makes the division of labor clear and does not force the order of use. Therefore it flexibly adapts to the management style of different teams, making collaboration more efficient.
You can add comments on the current page in the Comment mode.
Currently, there are 5 comment styles available for your choose, including: Pin, Circle,Rectangle, Arrow, Line.

During team collaboration, if multiple members have added comments, you can filter out a member’s comments or all member comments based on their names.
@ Members in Comments
When commenting, you can @ a member or all members. Entering the “@” symbol will bring up the @ member drop-down box, in which you can select the members you want to mention.
The mentioned members will receive a message prompt on the left side of his/her avatar. Click on the message content to jump to the comment page.
In the Development mode, specs can be generated smartly. You can view the corresponding specs by clicking or hovering on any elements of the design page. (Note: You can only view specs in the Development mode.)
There are three specs viewing modes in Mockplus iDoc:
1. not select any layers
Without selecting any layers, if you move between the layers, then it will automatically display the specs of the distance between them.
2. move between the layers
Select a layer and mouse over another layer to display the specs for the distance between the two layers.
3. select multiple layers
Hold down the Ctrl key and select multiple layers to display the specs for the distance between multiple layers.
In the Development mode, you can popup the Magnifier by clicking the magnifier icon in the lower left corner or pressing the Z button.
When using the Magnifier, the specs information on the design page will be fixed, and you can move the mouse to see the specs in the zoomed state. You can also press the “+/-” keys to adjust the magnification.
The layer tree provides a clear view of the hierarchical relationships between layers, helping engineers to easily understand and interface layout.
When there are multiple layers in the same location on the page, double-click the location to pop up the layer panel. All layers in that location are displayed in the layer panel.
After selecting “Lock layer panel” in the settings in the lower right corner, each time you double-click the layer, the panel will be displayed in a fixed position to avoid occlusion.
It can be disabled when there are invalid layers in the page. There are three ways to disable layers in the page:
1. Right click on the layer and click “Disable layer”.
On the right is the specs panel.
The top half of the specs panel displays the detailed information. Generally, it includes the layer name, position (left/top), size (size/height), margin (left/right/up/down) as well as opacity. If it’s text content, it also includes the content, font, font size, font weight, line height, word spacing, alignment as well as color.
Reference layer of percentage specs
Right-click on a layer, and you can set it as the reference layer of percentage specs. This layer will be used as a reference to calculate the percentage value of the specs.
Set the measure unit
The default measure unit on the page is pixel. If you need to convert to unit on other platforms (such as the pt in iOS, the dp in Android and the rem in Web), you can toggle in the unit panel.
At present, it supports general device conversion, custom width conversion, and custom unit conversion. The size of the current general-purpose device is listed in the iOS and Android columns above, and it can be directly used in the real development. The custom width conversion is a supplement to the general device conversion method. For special device size, you can customize the device width for conversion. In the custom unit conversion, you can set the conversion ratio between units and convert the specs value.
Click the settings button and you can show/hide the jumping area and the page border.
