Features & Improvements
Snap-to-grid resizing. 🖼
Image, embed, and columns now support resizing. They will automatically snap to a grid, sort of like LEGOs. It's now easier than ever to make beautiful pages.
Font styles + alignment.
Want to use Notion as a minimal writing tool? Or publish a page with handsome typography? Without losing the simplicity of the product, we carefully added two more font styles.
Sans: the old, default workhorse.
Serif: easy to read, good for publishing.
Monospace: like a typewriter, great for writing.
No more fiddling with the color picker! We hand-picked a couple dozen great colors for you. We made sure they always look nice no matter what.
Videos and other embeds no longer have those ugly borders. See how great this looks: 👀
Section heading styles.
You can now independently change the font size and color of section headings. We also got rid of the old subsection block.
Smarter Slack notifications.
We made slack notifications less noisy than before. Now, they only fire after you complete a time-based chunk of work on a page.
20+% faster. 🐬
We vastly improved the rendering engine in Notion. Load times and animations are noticeably snappier.
The breadcrumb can now be used as a standalone block, useful for public read-only pages.
Keyboard shortcuts in Safari.
Before, the undo and copy/paste keyboard shortcuts were broken.
Bookmark block in Safari.
Before, you couldn't paste out the link.
File and image block.
Before, the upload occasionally didn't work the first time.
Sidebar during renaming.
Before, the left sidebar could close itself when you are renaming a page.
Copying large pages.
Before, if you copied a very, very large page the app could freeze up.
Before it was overly aggressive when turning your text into links. 🐯
Remove a comment.
Before you couldn't remove a comment from a discussion.
... and many other bugs we are sure you will notice 😸
