🚀 What's New?
After a few months of extensive beta testing, we’re happy to share that our new text editor has been turned on for all communities! A big thanks to everyone who participated in the beta and helped us iron out all the kinks.
The 10 new features you should know about
1. Emojis 🎉
You can now use the colon (:) key to select emojis, or press the smile icon in the bottom right of the editor to pull up the emoji selector.
2. GIPHY support
You can click on the "GIF" icon at the bottom right of the text editor to spruce up posts and comments with a GIPHY-powered GIF selector!
3. Power menu
Pressing the slash (/) key at the start of any line now pulls up a powerhouse selector of formatting options, file uploads, and embed types. We'll show you everything that we've got!
4. Link previews + a new way to embed links
Link previews from any website or blog post with Open Graph tags are now supported. Just copy a link and hit enter!
If a link belongs to one of our 700+ supported rich embed providers, we'll embed it for you within the post. Examples of rich embed providers include YouTube, Soundcloud, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Typeform, and Airtable.
5. Inline toolbar
Selecting text anywhere in the editor now shows you an inline toolbar, making it much easier to adjust formatting options for longer posts.
6. Image galleries
Drag multiple image files into the editor, and we'll turn it into a full-size image gallery for members to look through.
7. Native PDF viewer
To improve document consumption and context switching, PDFs can now be viewed inside the browser tab.
8. Native audio player
There it is!
9. Shortcuts for bulleted list, numbered list, and horizontal rules
You can now make a bulleted list by starting a new line with a dash and a space (- ), an ordered list with a number and a period (1. ), and add a horizontal rule with two dashes.
10. Press cmd + enter to post!
