Pin feature

Pin objects to the canvas to immobilize them. Pinned objects can't be moved, but users can edit the content. 

To prevent inexperienced users from moving your content by accident, you lock it. But sometimes, this is too rigid, and you want that your attendees can add or edit the text on a sticky note, but you don't want to move it around. This is why we introduced the pin feature.

User Presence improvements

Left panel improvements

The left panel is primarily used to add media, upload documents and add shapes. 

Previously the left panel closed itself automatically when an object had been added to the canvas. We change this behavior so that the panel is now open until the user closes it. 

This improves the experience when users need to add multiple shapes. For example, users can add all the shapes needed without re-opening the panel when creating a diagram or designing a workflow.

Availability: All subscriptions
