Text Blaze

:magic_wand: Improved Snippet Auto Write

Guess what? We've made the snippet Auto Write feature even better! Now called AI Write, it's got two fantastic improvements:

  1. :speech_balloon: AI Write lets you interactively create snippets in a conversational way. If you're not happy with the first version, just give it some guidance on how to tweak the snippet.

  2. :sparkles: Want to polish your existing snippet text? AI Write can do that too! Just tell it what changes you'd like, such as adjusting the tone or length, and it'll work its magic.


:nesting_dolls: Improved Nested Command Editing

One of the coolest things about Text Blaze is nesting commands within each other. For example, you can set a formtext to use the current date as its default value by using the time command within it.

We've made it even better by improving the display of nested commands in the editor. Now you can view chips for the nested commands right within the editor! :tada:

Here is an example:

Enter a date: {formtext: default={time: LL}}

Data Blaze

:date: New Filters for Dates

Data Blaze now has nifty new date filters that let you filter a date field within a certain number of days, weeks, or months of the current date.

:zap: Performance Improvements

There have been several performance improvements to Data Blaze this month. These updates will make a difference for large tables, tables with lots of views, and tables with lots of link row fields.

Data Blaze indexes are now created for any sorting you've applied to the tables. This means faster loading or scrolling for larger tables. You might not notice it on smaller tables, but for those with hundreds of thousands of rows, it's a huge improvement! :bullettrain_side:
