Include linked screens option in the share dialog will include screens outside your selection but reachable through links in the prototype. This way you make sure there are no broken links in your share. When viewing the prototype, use the table of contents in the Prototype Viewer to get to screens that are not reachable through links in your share.

The starting point is the first screen that viewers of your prototype will see when they access it. You can see its thumbnail marked with a home icon in the
If you do not have a starting point set for the selected screens, Indigo will ask you to choose one. You can also change the starting point from the share dialog if you already have one.
To choose the starting point for your prototype, simply click on one of the screens to mark it with the home icon.
(a-3) New share vs. replace
You'll create a new share when:
- it's the first time you're sharing something belonging to the project.
- you want a new URL for your share.
- you want to share a different group of files from what you've shared before.
You'll replace an existing share when you want to create a new version of an existing share. Remember your reviewers already have the URL.
Select one of the items of the list of previous shares to replace and then click the
Replace Prototype button.
