How does one install a custom Axure widget or axure library into Axure RP. Welcome to Humble UX. Thank you for purchasing our kits but now you may have the question: How do I install the kit. There are several ways but I will show you the most common way of installing Axure widget libraries.

  1. Unzipped the file you just downloaded, Axure files have the extension  *.rplib
  2. Open up Axure RP 7 or 6.5. The default libraries that come with Axure are housed under the Widgets pane (middle left).

  3. Click on the hamburger menu icon and chose the Load library menu item

  4. Navigate to the file you downloaded from HumbleUX (the unzipped file) with the extension *.rplib, select and click Open. This will load the library into your widgets pane.

When we started out in design and prototyping, one common obstacle was not finding enough good examples that one could download and learn from. We have purposefully made more free axure widgets than priced ones because we want to encourage you to download quality work. Get downloading!!

  1. When I am trying to use the ‘Social Kit’ Library, I am able to drag and drop the widgets but unable to see the icons. In the place of logo (f, bird, g+ etc.) in the icons its showing ‘?’. What could be the problem.

  2. What if I have to import a library which is not .rplib and has java, css and svg files? Will I be able to import it to Axure? If yes, where do I find related details or information to do so?

  3. hey.thanks for all the freebies. I’m just working through some tutorials and these have been really helpful, however, above it says ‘free’ libraries but when I click on Personas Axure library kit, it’s charging $5. Any reason for this or just an error?
