How to use Boards

 

Since releasing Boards, we’ve been working on making them even better. Today, we’re proud to announce a host of powerful updates:

Comment sketching

Commenters can now sketch on an image or rendered source file and save this sketch with their comment. This sketch is then attached to the comment, so readers can view the sketch by hovering over the comment. Pro tip: add both a sketch and an annotation to your comment, and your sketch will appear when readers hover over the annotation, too.

Source file previews

Previews allow users and collaborators to view the content of a source file without downloading it. You can also get feedback directly on your source files with comments, annotations, and sketches.

Dropbox and Google Drive Sync

You can now sync Boards from Dropbox and Google Drive. Upload your files to a Board, or to a specific section on your Board. Plus, your files will be updated automatically when you save changes to the original file.

Disable downloads

Change settings for your share links to turn off download links for everything on your Board, or to specifically allow downloads of images, fonts, and/or source files. Board collaborators can still download disabled files from within Share Mode.

Social sharing

Quickly share your Board to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+.

Performance upgrades

The performance upgrades to Boards let you add larger images—and more of them—without slowing down the process of building or viewing Boards.
