Features & Improvements
A brand new editor. 🎉🎉 📝 🎉🎉
We made some big changes to our editor! Our goal was to make it feel more like a familiar text editor, without sacrificing our awesome drag and drop magic.
A better way to rearrange. ✋
When you hover over a block, a small, unobtrusive indicator appears, making it easy to drag anything. You can still drag directly on objects like images and pages.
Highlight text like you're used to. 🖌
Text highlighting now works more like your favorite text editor. Just click and drag to select many blocks from within text.
Quickly add new content anywhere, without the Toolbox.
Hovering over blocks also reveals a new menu that makes it easy to add new blocks, without needing to use the toolbox.
Column & media resizing.
Columns are now resized by selecting the block and using the resize handles at the bottom left and right.
Download Notion for Mac (preview) 🍰🍰🍰
The Mac app is now open to all users. The download link is near the bottom of your left sidebar. It's a preview release – please do message us if you noticed any issues. 🤗
Clicking a link in an embed in the desktop app opens your default browser.
Before, it opened a popup in the desktop app.
Page titles in the Add menu.
It is now possible to add a Page title from within the add menu, as well as via a slash command.
Control+K to remove a word.
Before, this shortcut didn't work.
Before, the create button and dropdown configure popups didn't render properly.
And a lot of little bugs are gone... 🐞
