Step into the world of curated creativity with Day 2 of our 0.12.0 launch week! This update introduces significant features to enhance your workflow: now you can dictate the visibility of your content, easily access the Whiteboard Scissors Tool, and experience increased productivity through the versatility of our new templates.

We're excited to announce that AFFiNE has secured 2nd Place as Product of the Day on ProductHunt—thanks to your incredible support! The voting isn't over yet, and we'd love for you to keep backing us in this thrilling adventure: AFFiNE on ProductHunt.

Control Your Own Content: The Ability to Decide The Visibility of Content

Whether on a page or whiteboard, you now have the option to selectively display specific content. Simply switch to Edgeless Mode and choose your preferred Display Mode option (show in Edgeless/Page/Both). This empowers you to present more flexible and diverse content structures, putting you in full control of how your content is showcased!

Whiteboard Scissors Tool Now Easily Accessible

In our latest update, version 0.12.0, we've revamped the layout of our whiteboard interface to enhance user experience. One notable change is the relocation of the scissors tool, now conveniently nestled on the right side of the toolbar. This adjustment serves a crucial purpose: to safeguard your creative endeavors from unintended alterations. Now, when you select a note, the scissors icon is readily accessible, reducing the likelihood of accidental modifications while you engage with the whiteboard's features.
