Import from Microsoft Word

Much like last months update our focus continues to be on little details, performance, and bug fixing rather than new features – but some solid new functionality did sneak in with the help of open source contributors…

HTML + Word Import

You can now import HTML and Microsoft Word documents simply by dragging them onto a collection, or from the collection context menu. We also improved the look and feel of GSuite embeds.

New + Unread badges

Lists of documents now show when you last viewed the doc – and new, unread documents are highlighted with a badge so it's easier to spot changes you missed.
