You can now preview more file types in Dovetail instead of downloading and opening them separately.
Previews now support the following formats:
Microsoft Word documents (.docx)
Microsoft Powerpoint files (.pptx)
Images (jpeg, png, GIFs, svg)
Videos (all common formats)
Audio (all common formats)
Note: preview won't be available for other filetypes, e.g. zip files.
After opening a note, insight, or story, you have two ways to insert a file:
Drag & Drop a file from your desktop into your page
Use the "add files" icon in the in-editor toolbar
When inserting, we'll show a preview when possible. You can change the display style by clicking on the meatball menu on the top right of the preview, and selecting "Card" under "Style".
You can launch the preview dialog by single-clicking when viewing content, or double clicking when editing content.
You can share links to your inserted files by selecting the meatball menu on the top right of your preview, and clicking "copy link". This link will lead directly to the file preview.
