21 February: Edit text with AI, a published docs preview and more

We’ve added the option to edit text with AI, a preview of our new published documentation experience, and a bunch of other nice improvements

✨ New

  • We have a new published documentation experience coming very soon 👀 and we’d love your feedback. In the next few days, you should see a pop-up that lets you preview your published space with the new experience. And you can always access it later from the New! button in the space’s sub-nav. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

  • You can no longer add API method blocks to your documentation. Read our announcement to find out more.

➕ Improved

  • We’ve improved the look of the automatic emails that GitBook sends, such as when you log in with a magic link. They now match our new brand styling.

  • We’ve made some small improvements to the UI of the Home page to make everything easier to read and understand.

  • You can now cancel AI writing while it’s generating if you decide what it’s creating isn’t right for you.

  • You can choose to enable or disable all GitBook AI features across your whole organization from the Settings page.

  • When you ask GitBook AI a question in the Ask or search bar, the answer will stream for you so you can start reading as soon as it begins to generate.

  • When you type ‘Code’ in the insert palette, the code block option will now appear above Codepen in the list so you can easily hit Enter to add a code block. Plus, we’ve moved inline content to the bottom of the insert palette

  • When you have multiple people viewing or editing the same space, their avatars will now stack in the top bar and footer to reduce the chance of them pushing other UI elements out of the way.

🔧 Fixed

  • Fixed an issue that could lose the most recent edits if you quickly merged a change request.

  • Fixed an issue where a tooltip wouldn’t disappear, even after navigating away from the button.

  • Fixed an issue where changes to the title and description of a page weren’t saved when hitting Merge.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause a crash when deleting a single image in an image block.

  • Fixed a bug in the inline link editor that caused the link to overflow the text box.

  • Fixed the header for change requests to adapt to any title length and screen width.

  • Fixed a crash that could happen when you add a new tab to a tab block.

We’re constantly working on improving the way you and your team work in GitBook, and value your input on features, bugs, and more. Make sure you head to our official GitBook Community to join the discussion!
