Sharing Improvements

Outline Public Sharing

Last week brings some great improvements to public document sharing. We recently simplified the sharing dialog to a popover and now added the ability to share an entire tree of nested documents too. This much-requested feature is great for sharing structured help docs or several related documents with a single link!

As an additional security measure the Share button will also display a globe icon if a document is shared publicly because one of it's parents has been shared.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Images now show a Download button for easy downloading of images in a document
  • In the share dialog see when the link was last accessed
  • Improved behavior when typing words that include underscores in the editor
  • Improved behavior with the cursor around the edges of inline code
  • Added support for Descript embeds
