Features & Improvements
Slash /commands magic (inspired by Slack) 💥💥💥
Love the /commands in Slack? They are even more powerful in Notion. You can quickly add a comment, turn a section into a page, and more – they're like superpowers for your keyboard.
Insert from anywhere, no drag & drop required. 👍
Drag & drop is nice, but sometimes you just want Notion to work like good' old Google Docs. Now you can with the new insert button.
Smart link conversion. 🌊
When pasting in a link, we'll gently prompt you to convert it to a Web Bookmark or Embed – it's now easier than ever to create your team reading list, or add that funny YouTube video.
Revamped typography (inspired by iA Writer.)
Nitti is our new monospaced font, tailored for writing (it's also the primary font in iA Writer). Lyon is our sans-serif beauty. If you are a typography nerd like us, this will feel like Christmas. 🎄
View images in full resolution. 🌠
Rename current page + word count.
Cyrillic search (effective June 8, US West Coast time).
Before, you couldn't search in Russian and other Cyrillic scripts.
Cyrillic serif font.
Before, the serif font showed weird characters for Cyrillic scripts.
Before, exported PDFs sometimes had a black background, and were half cut off. (Shameful, we know 😓).
European language support.
Before, languages like Czech and Romanian had missing characters.
Mac/Windows system editing shortcuts.
Before, there was no support for shortcuts like
Backspaceto delete a word on Mac.
Real-time collaboration avatars.
Before, sometimes your collaborators' avatars didn't show up.
Cropped image height. 🖼
Before, really large images could be cropped off.
Autoplay updated videos.
Before, the uploaded video would autoplay in the background. (Very annoying 💩).
Before, it didn't show results when you typed in the exact email address.
... and so many other bugs, we literally lost count... 😑
