New Feature: embed PDF documents in Papyrs

A new feature in Papyrs makes it really easy to embed PDF files directly on your pages.

When you drag a Media/Widget to your Papyrs page you’ll see a new button for PDF files:

Just upload the file and you’re set:

You can upload multiple PDF files on a page, and PDF files are automatically indexed for easy searching! In addition PDF files can be downloaded and printed directly from the Papyrs page.

Embed Google Suite Content

You can still embed Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Charts onto Papyrs pages. For more info about that see the Papyrs & Google Suite documentation.

Settings screen updates

Another redesign which we’ve made available to all sites now is an update to the settings screen. Besides a visual refresh, one goal in particular for the new design was to make it easier to get an overview of all integrations. This way Administrators can enable and access configuration options with just a few clicks (like setting up single sign on with Slack, for example).

We hope you find it useful, more design updates soon!

Profile updates

We’ve been busy redesigning many screens and dialogs over the past few months. Some of these changes will be launched later and we look forward to sharing all updates soon. A few of these updates we’ve already launched, like a design refresh of user profiles.

On a Papyrs site, each user has a profile card which people can use to look up more information about a team member (such as their status, position, expertise, and so on). With the new design, clicking on a user anywhere in the interface will bring up a new profile card, making it easier to quickly look up the details of the author of a page, or someone in the People directory, for example. Administrators can also access all user-related options from this profile card.

Editor menu updates

We’ve released a number of updates today to the editor and dropdown menus. The new menus should make it easier and faster to access page editing options.

To simplify things further, we’ve also split up the old “Page Settings” dialog. Page Settings are now split up into “Permissions & Subscriptions”, and “Page Properties”. Page properties is where you can change the name of the page, put it in a different folder, assign tags and so on. You can now also access both screens while editing the contents of the page.

We hope you find these updates useful. Stay tuned for more!

October updates

One of the updates we’ve released this month makes it easier to add and edit image galleries. The updated dialog includes a new option which will automatically adjust the images so they fit best on your page.

We’ve also made it easier to add or remove captions. When editing a page, just click on an image and a pop-up will show you the following options:

These are just some of the updates we’ve been working on, more is coming soon!
