Reviewing copy and want to suggest a change without editing directly? In addition to making edits directly to text, you can now suggest edits in the edit panel in Ditto.
To suggest an edit, switch the text input from “Editing” to “Suggesting”. This will switch the edit panel to suggesting mode, as indicated by the green color.
Suggestions are generated like comments — meaning they’ll appear in the “Activity” tab of a text item, in the project-level activity, in the recent comment section, and in Quick Reply. Any suggestion can be accepted or rejected.
For more information, check out our help guide on suggesting edits.
Collaborating on text in Ditto? We just rolled out 3 major updates to commenting. 💪
⚡️ Quick Reply Mode
When clicking into a comment from the project activity or from a notification, quick reply mode will surface the relevant comment directly in the edit panel.
In quick reply, you'll also be able to iterate through all open comment threads in the project.
💬 Comment from the Edit Panel
On any text item, you can now leave a comment directly from the edit panel!
You'll still be able to view all activity and comments from the "Activity" tab! We hope this helps you stay in your flow while making edits.🧘
🆕 Surfacing the Newest Comment
If a text item has an open comment thread, it'll also be surfaced directly in the edit panel. Here, you can read, respond, and resolve, without leaving the edit panel.
This week, we rolled out a new design for our edit panel! With the new edit panel, you can add metadata fields to the text item, but they won't display by default if the metadata isn't present.
Sometimes the small things are the big things! We’ve released six new features that improve how teams use components:
You'll now be able to page through the edits pulled in by the latest plugin sync directly in the Figma file!
To do this, just select the edited text message in the "Your Recent Sync" section of our Figma plugin. This will then allow you to iterate through each change — and select the corresponding text node directly in your Figma file.
Ditto now supports Grammarly natively — in both our web app and our Figma plugin! You’ll now be able to correct misspellings and grammar mistakes, as well as view suggestions for improved writing clarity directly in Ditto.
To learn more about what our Grammarly integration means for your team, check out our latest blog post.
Today, we’re rolling out rich text support in Ditto. This means you’ll now be able to also manage styling within a text item — specifically, using bold, underline, and italics.
Rich text support is included for all text edited in Ditto, whether it's in the plugin or the web-app, and whether its base text, variant text, a plural, a component, a draft or includes a variable. To learn more about the engineering efforts and implementation details of rich text in Ditto, head to our latest blog post.
When searching for components to attach, you'll now be able to see the status, tags, and notes for each component, in addition to the name and text!
Have suggestions for repeated text you don't want to turn into a component? You can now ignore component suggestions in Ditto! 💪
This is available in both the web-app and plugin. Ignored suggestions will live at the bottom of your list.
You can now multi-select in the component library! You can use multi-select to take bulk action on components in your component library, such as changing status, editing tags, and deleting:
For more information, check out our guide on keyboard shortcuts.
For teams on our Growth and Enterprise Plans, we’ve just released component folders!
You can now create an additional level of nesting when organizing components. This comes highly requested from teams who have wanted to separate out components for different teams or product areas. You'll also be able to filter component suggestions to folders.
To learn more about folders, check out our Component Folders Help Guide.
For teams getting set up, you can access a progress tracker where we've centralized the key features we've seen help maximize Ditto's value for new teams. 🤓
For teams already set up, the help center surface access to help guides, support, and contextual walkthroughs. 💪
Stash, an investing and banking app with more than 2M members, implemented Ditto to manage all of the strings in their product.
Over the last year, we've seen the results of integrating Ditto into their workflows: 12,000+ hours saved annually and a 20% reduction in their ship timelines. 🚀
We do a deep dive into Stash in our latest case study.
We now support external links in Notes and Comments in Ditto! When you type a link in either of those fields in the web app or the Figma plugin, we’ll automatically detect that and allow you to open it up in a new window or tab.
We’ve made several updates around comment notifications to make it easier for you to collaborate with your team! 🤝
We’ve shipped out a lot of updates that make components easier, smoother, and faster to use.
On the Enterprise plan, you can now create new folders that are invite-only, or change existing folders to be invite-only. Invite-only folders and the projects within them will only be accessible to those invited.
You can check out our help guide to learn more. We hope this makes it easier to organize the projects in your workspace and set more fine-grained permissions around access to projects.
We've created two new resources to help teams understand how Ditto works step-by-step and onboard async.
To use either of these, just click "Get a copy" in the Figma community and follow the steps in the playground file. We hope this makes it super easy to understand how Ditto works, gives everyone a chance to interact with Ditto in a low-stakes file, and helps onboard teammates new to Ditto! 🥳
