Adding New Resources and Live Preview
January 22nd, 2013
We are pleased to announce that we have released more updates to Unfuddle this week. Let us show you even if you have already noticed them.
Adding resources in your projects
We have added a new "plus" button to the tab bar at the top-left of the screen. This button will allow you to easily add a message, for example, to any project from any page in your account. Just thought of something you wanted to share with your team in project X? No problem. Click the quick add button and create a message in that project right from where you are on the page. Since tickets are the most commonly created resource, we have included an always available "quick ticket" button next to this. Along with this addition, we have gone ahead and updated the forms for creating new resources.
The other major addition in this release is an update to the text editor. We have had many people express difficulty in getting their text to look right without clicking the preview button or repeatedly saving the text to check it. Now, you will now notice a live preview area so you can see what your markdown/textile will look like when your text is saved. No more wondering if you got the formatting right. Note: If you wish to hide the live preview, you can toggle it by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the editor toolbar.
Additionally, we have enabled the text areas to automatically resize to fit their contents. This is especially convenient when editing a large notebook page or other resource with a long description or body.
We have also released some bug fixes, the most notable of which is a fix for the project selector functionality on touch devices. This now works as expected. Finally, we have updated the Unfuddle Mylyn Connector for those of you who use the Eclipse IDE in your projects.
More is on the way. As always, please let us know if you have any comments about our recent updates or things you would like to see changed or added in the future. We really value your feedback!
