How to get back a deleted Mockup

So someone deleted a mockup in confluence (about 50 edits ago) and we want it back.

It is still in the system - search finds the .png - I can add it as an image to the page.... But how do i get to edit it again?

I tried to insert a new one - it does not come up as one to copy from (Jira does this but not confluence)... Any ideas - it is pretty complex

Hmm, I just tried it again and it works. What version of Mockups are you using?

Another way is to download the bmml attachment, open it in a text editor, select all of it and copy. Then back in Confluence create a new mockup, select "Import XML", paste and import. You will create a clone of the original mockup that way.

We are using on-demand - so no idea of the version...

By "Text Editor" do you mean wordpad? or is there some xml editor I should get?

Thanks that fixed it.

Downloaded the bmml attachment to desktop - opened it in wordpad - copy all - add a new mockup to the page - imported XML.


Hi Paul. If the mockups's png and bmml are still attached to the page, you can follow the instructions here to make it reappear on the page so that you can edit it again. Let me know if it doesn't work.

Tried this - I get an error in the page "Mockup image (version 1) not found. Did someone delete it?"

I then tried to rename it (the second part of the page - for some reason I though that was the next steps...) and that also gives the same error message - even with the new name

So not able to edit it - it does not display in the page (except using html image)

Downloaded the attachment (bmml), opened in wordpad, select all, copy, open a new balsamiq, import XML, save with new name.

Worked fine - thanks.
