So, what’s new?

  1. Bigger Workspace
  2. Beautiful Custom Colors
  3. Easy Color and Style Copying
  4. Customizable Tool Presets
  5. New Avatars

1. Bigger Workspace

Go big or go home! We’ve been working hard to reduce the page borders to give you more on-screen workspace. You’ll notice along the side and the top we’ve removed unnecessary borders extending the workspace. The effect is remarkable – especially for smaller displays such as tablets and mobile devices. Check it out for yourself!

2. Beautiful Customizable Colors

We’ve reworked the default color palette, and we know you’re going to love it! Find inspiration in our range of colors to suit any project.

There are three new default color palettes available:

  1. Basic Colors
  2. Light Colors
  3. Grayscale

To access these color palettes, simply click on a tool and the drop down menu will showcase all the new colors. At the same time, we’ve introduced three new customizable color palettes on a personal and team level to save you time and effort. They are:

  • Board Colors: This palette will automatically save all the recently used colors on the board so you don’t have to keep searching for the right colors every single time.

  • Corporate Colors: Keep your corporate identity on-brand with the new corporate palette, available in PRO accounts only. Your company colors can be preloaded and saved as a corporate palette, but you must have your team administrators preload them first and then it’s available for all the team members to use.
  • Personal Colors: These colors are for your personal use only. Create your personal color palette to access your favorite colors at any time.

3. Easy Color and Style Copying

Your new favorite tool! We are introducing the Format Brush tool, that will allow you to work faster by copying over settings in a single click. To use, simply drag your cursor over the item with the settings you want to copy, next click on the Format Brush tool button in the navigation bar (it looks like a paint brush) and then select a new item with your cursor to paint those settings straight onto another object or text.

4. Customizable Tool Presets

Personalize your board and save time with our new Tool Presets. You can configure the default style on the following tools:

  • Pen & Highlighter – Set to your preferred color and line width and your presets will be available on every new board
  • Lines – You can preset your favorite line formats and width, which will save you so much time
  • Shapes – Preset your shape formats by color, opacity, line style and width as well as text attributes
  • Sticky notes – Personalized sticky notes are here. You can change the default colors and fonts of individual sticky notes to your preferred style

You will find these tools in the navigation bar. So simply click on the tool you wish to change, create the new settings, and click set as default. And the best part, once created, it will be stored in your account.

5. New Avatars

We’ve updated the avatar appearance to make it easier for you to see who’s accessing a board at any one time. Which is great for large teams.  

All accounts have been automatically updated with all of these new improvements so you can simply login and access all these new features immediately. If you would like to learn more about the new features, please head over to our help center or have a look at our release notes.
