June 23, 2020 — Today’s update to Notion introduces a handful of
overdue welcomed aesthetic enhancements.
A longstanding bug caused databases to indent awkwardly when arranged as columns. That bug is resolved, and in-line databases look much nicer within columns.
To arrange databases as columns, you’ll first need to create columns with empty Text blocks. You can then drag in-line databases into those columns.
To the bewilderment of many users, underlining text has remained unsupported Notion. Today, underlining joins bold, italic and other formatting options.
External hyperlinks and @-mentioned pages boast a polished new look.
As with all Notion updates, today’s included a handful of bug fixes and minor tweaks. From Notion itself:
- Navigating databases is much faster, thanks to improved caching
- The 5,000-block limit on duplicating blocks, pages, and public templates has been removed – no more error messages!
- Improved keyboard and slash command support for inline math
- Fixed a bug that caused \tags to only work for display equations in inline math
- Fixed a bug where hitting the right arrow key closed the inline math dialogue box and lost changes
- Fixed a bug that caused the action bar to jump on mobile when opening and closing the keyboard
- Fixed a bug that prevented admins from changing the sharing settings on pages that exceed the guest limit on the free Personal Plan
- Fixed a bug that prevented comments from saving for some users with guest access
- Fixed a bug that prevented @-mentions from appearing in board and gallery view
- Fixed a bug that caused PDF files to become corrupted during export
