"The file must be public before... Make public..."
It makes me think it will be possible in some way for people to browse to that file. I don't mind a cryptic URL that no one can find to be publically available its just that these messages are a bit scary.
I suggest you ditch the dialog that comes up completely and change the name of the menu item to "Share public URL".
Another issue I have with the current OS integration is that it says "Send link" when I right click on a file I want to share. I don't want to be taken to my browser and mess with dialogs etc. I usually want to send the link by email or paste it somewhere, so the whole roundtrip to browser is just unnecessary.
I suggest you change the menu item to "Copy public URL to clipboard" or at least add that a new choice in the menu.
The "Be" says "post publically". So when I later on see the "Make Public" button in the context of sharing a link I subconciously suspect that "Be" is somehow involved in that too because the terminology is the same for two completely different features.
Thank you for your feedback on the Send Link feature. We are investigating some improvements to the buttons and messaging to help explain it & differentiate it from the post to Behance feature. But, it's by design to have the explicit step to generate (and/or turn off) the URL. We want it to be very clear that the document could be viewed by anyone who has the URL. The extra layer of protection is important given that people may be using the feature to share proprietary content.
