We have been busy (as usual!) releasing a lot of new features, improvements, and fixes to Dovetail. Read on for all of the juicy details.

New insights

Our new insights feature is the star of the show. Summarize user research insights with embeddable references, present insights on the big screen with presentation mode, and share findings with stakeholders and clients.

Starred highlights

Star highlights on a tag to show the best or most relevant ones at the top. Just click the star icon on a highlight to toggle whether it’s starred or not. You can also filter by starred things in search with is:starred.

Ever wanted to filter search results by the group title? Well now you can with the new group:Foo field in DQL. Check out our search help article for the full reference on what you can do with search.

Heading 3

H1, H2, now H3! We added H3 headings to give you even more ways to structure your content. Just type ### then Space, or check out the shortcuts dialog to see the keyboard shortcut to insert an H3.

New editor shortcuts

Speaking of shortcuts… we added some more! Now you can insert headings, bullet lists, number lists, and blockquotes using the same keyboard shortcuts as Google Docs. Check out the shortcuts dialog to see the new shortcuts.

Undo / redo buttons

Lastly, we added Undo and Redo actions to the editor toolbar, so you don’t need to remember ⌘ + Z or ⌘ + Shift + Z.
