30 November 22: Annotations, footnotes, and more
We’ve added more ways to provide contextual information for your visitors, as well as improvements to expandable blocks and several bug fixes.
- You can now add inline text annotations! Easily provide useful secondary information with content blocks that expand upon hover. It’s a handy way to provide additional context without breaking a reader’s train of thought.
Here’s how you add annotations to your content
And here’s what it looks like to your visitors
- We’ve also added support for footnotes in Markdown, which are imported into GitBook as inline annotations.
- Expandable blocks now have an anchor link you can copy and paste. Additionally, we now expand a block automatically when the page is accessed. This allows you to quickly direct visitors to a specific part of your documentation.
- Better handling of errors in calls to our API, specifically when listing spaces.
- Fix an issue where heading anchors were
undefinedwhen target immediately after they were created.
- You can now use drag and drop to move a space to a collection that is nested inside another collection.
- When using the inline palette, it should now have the focus return to the editor after closing it.
- Fix pasting tables for certain websites.
- Fix an issue where duplicated characters are sometimes inserted when typing in code blocks.
- Fix page outlines that were too big, now they should be scrollable for viewing the entire list.
- Fix an issue where focus would be trapped in a popover when selecting math equations.
- Fix an issue where diff view would incorrectly show that text had changed if the number of words in the paragraph had changed.
