☝️ The Stage Mode is available on the Web and Windows apps. If you click the “View in Stage Mode” button in Zeplin Mac app, you’ll be redirected to Zeplin Web app in a new browser tab.

Zeplin’s Stage Mode is a simplified interface focused on presenting and reviewing designs. With the Stage Mode, you can present your screen in Zeplin and get feedback on them through comments.

Viewing a screen in the Stage Mode

To open the Stage Mode, you can click on the “View in Stage Mode” button from the right panel of a screen.

💁‍♀️ You can also open the Stage Mode by using the keyboard shortcuts while on a screen detail — Cmd + . for Mac, Ctrl + . for Windows.

To open the Stage Mode from the project dashboard, you can right-click on a screen and select the “View in Stage Mode” option from the menu.

On the Stage Mode, you can use the left/right arrow keys to see the previous/next screens and use the Option/Alt+Arrow keys to switch between screen variants.

You can use the “Esc” key both to close the comment window and right panel or to exit Stage Mode.

Viewing and adding comments in the Stage Mode

The Stage Mode view is structured for getting feedback on screens through comments without being distracted by the specs. On this view, you can see existing comments by extending the comments section from the top right corner. You can also add a new comment by clicking on the “Add Comment” button or pressing Cmd + Clicking (Ctrl for Windows and Linux users) anywhere on the screen.

☝️ It’s not possible to add annotation while on the Stage Mode.

Sharing the Stage Mode link

All workspace members who are invited to the project will be able to access the Stage Mode with its link. To share the link, click on the “Share” button in the top right corner while you’re on Stage Mode. Then, Zeplin will generate and copy the link automatically.
