February Development Update

:memo: Enhanced command editing

For some time, we've been testing an improved snippet editing experience that makes it easier to edit dynamic commands like the time or formula commands.

It's now ready for everyone! Starting this month, we'll begin rolling it out to all users.

You will have the option to revert to the old editing experience during this rollout. If you find the need to do that, please let us know why at support@blaze.today so we can address any issues.

:mag: Use content from the page in your snippet

Text Blaze can use content from the page you are on in your snippet. For example, when replying to a message in Facebook you may want to include the name of the person you are replying to in your snippet automatically. You can do that by using the site command.

In the past, this required a fair amount of technical knowledge to make it work. This month we are excited to introduce a new Beta feature that gives you the same functionality with a simple point and click.

Just click the piece of text you want to include in your snippet and the correct site command will be created for you.

Note that you need to have the enhanced snippet editing experience enabled to use this feature.

Quick Tip of the Month

Did you know that you can easily include (and even manipulate) the contents of your computer's clipboard in your snippet? Learn more in this video:

As always...

The site text selection is really very helpful to me, so thank you Text Blaze Team!
However, there is one thing that happened when using it that I haven't figured out. I am setting up an email for Salesforce and have selected the account name using the text selection. The email before I changed it had line breaks in it when I used it. After adding the account name text selection the there are no hard returns in the email. Is there something I can do to make sure that the lines are separated?


This looks amazing. Thank you, will be very much easy for non-tech person like me.

Hi Laren, thanks for your detailed feedback. I tried to reproduce your issue in a couple of different ways, but couldn't see it anywhere. Could you kindly email me at gaurang@blaze.today so that we can chat about in a bit more detail? Thanks!

Hi Gaurang. I just tried it again and now the the spacings are there. Maybe it was just a weird temp glitch with SFDC or something. I'll let you know if it happens again.

I hear ya on that @Laren_Eggleston! Funny how SF seems to have those little hiccups at random.
