Support for HCL syntax

Text formatted as code now supports HashiCorp Config Language (HCL) for syntax highlighting.

Here's a quick round-up of our latest bug fixes, focusing mainly on improvements in object layering:

  • Right-clicking in a selected frame and section now opens the context menu instead of selecting an inner object.
  • Clicking outside a comment on a view-only board now closes the comment.
  • You can now resize a shape all the way down to its minimum height in one go.
  • Shapes with multiple lines of text sized to the minimum height no longer get resized the next time you select them.
  • Objects inside sections can now be consistently moved to the front or to the back.
  • Once placed inside a section, objects now maintain their previous layer order.
  • When duplicating connected objects, the connectors now keep the same position as in the original, rather than moving to the front.
  • We've fixed a bug where the first character typed in some languages was not always displayed.

Org plan admins can secure and consolidate company data by preventing new workspace creation on their domain. Learn more here.

Flowchart shapes, when resized or expanded, will now expand vertically, in a downward direction.

Navigating comments is now so much better. Clicking a link to a comment will scroll you to threads, discussions and other inline comments. Searching comments within a board, doc, or even across files will bring you to the correct position in the discussion. Plus, we changed the comment highlight arrow from white to purple to make it more visible.
