Heptabase Update - Export to PDF, Product Updates, and more!

Dear Heptabase User,

In the past few weeks, we've rolled out our new backend, which has led to faster initialization speed and more stable sync performance. We appreciate all the bug reports and feedback you've sent us!

If you still encounter any sync-related issues, please feel free to contact us for support!

Use case: Distill a 1000+ page technical programming book into big picture thinking


This week's use case comes from one of our Discord community members, BigSnipes.

BigSnipes shared the whiteboard โ€œPython in a Nutshellโ€ in the Discord channel. Even though the whiteboard is big, you can still understand its structure because the section names become larger when you zoom out.

At Heptabase, we encourage you to use sections to group content within a whiteboard. You can name and color sections thoughtfully to make them easy to find and use as the whiteboard expands. You can also add subsections into sections for more advanced use. If you haven't tried using sections much, we recommend you give it a try!

Editor: Export to PDFโ€‹

You can now export your cards to PDF files! This feature is still in beta, so if you encounter any bugs or have any feedback, please let us know.

In the coming months, we will also allow you to share a card directly as a webpage with others via a link. Stay tuned!

Product updatesโ€‹

We are revamping the layout for iPad/tablet devices and conducting internal tests to support whiteboard editing on these devices. Although there is still much work to be done before we launch it for users, you can anticipate an upgraded mobile/tablet app soon!

We found a sincere review on Reddit made by one of our users, JeffB1517.

In this review, JeffB1517 said, "I'd say I'm receiving a level of support fairly comparable to what I get when I, in a professional context, am paying for a high-cost support contract. Simply fantastic!"

This truly flattered us, and we greatly appreciated it!

Recently, we've noticed that many Japanese users have joined Heptabase. We believe this is due to our user @YUM_3, who wrote a wonderful and detailed review in Japanese. We read it using translators and loved it!

We're glad to see everyone who found us through this article.

If you have any questions or feedback, don't hesitate to contact us via our in-app support. Feel free to send us messages in Japanese!

We've just opened a new role for a mid-level software engineer in Taiwan. If you're a software engineer based in Taiwan and love using Heptabase, we encourage you to consider applying. This is a great opportunity to build features and improve the product that you use every day!
