    It's a beta feature, so message us if you run into any issues.

  • Faster Mac app.
    Before the Mac could get slow if you left running for a long time. (There was a memory leak, in nerd speak 🤓). We worked hard to tackle this problem – so now it's always fresh and fast.

  • Keyboard shortcuts for navigation.
    Ctrl/Command + [or ] back or forward in history.
    Ctrl/Command + u to go up a page.
    Check out all of our shortcuts here:

  • "Why Notion" page.
    Want to know how typewriters, Steve Jobs, and computer pioneers relate to why we built Notion? Read it here.

  • Rich text and Markdown copy/paste.
    If you paste out to a rich text editor like Google Docs, your bold and italics will remain rich text. If you paste out to a plain text editor, we'll intelligently convert them to Markdown.

Bug Fixes

  • Code block.
    Before, the code block required two clicks to edit. No more! 🤖

  • Web Bookmark block.
    Before, the web bookmark block didn't automatically get selected when you create it.

  • Template Button block.
    Before, when you created an item with the template button it wouldn't get automatically selected.

  • Markdown export with Numbered List.
    Before, our markdown exporter didn't render numbered lists properly.

  • And little bug fixes here and there. Thank you all for the tips! 👍
