New Features – April 2012 (v4.27)

Here’s what’s been happening at Vyew this past month:

  • New Home Dashboard – monitor activity in all of your rooms
  • Page Voice Notes – Easily record up to 5 minutes of audio on each page
  • Translate Quickly – If you work with people who write comments in other languages, you can easily translate
  • New Language Option – Chinese is now available in the UI
  • Hand Grab Tool – Hold the space bar, then click and drag to drag the page around (instead of scrolling)



New Features:

  • New Home Dashboard – separate from your rooms list– view recent activity in your account.







  • The Vyew User Interface is now available in Simplified Chinese. Set the language in Menu->Account Settings, on the General tab. Other languages to come.










  • Page Voice Notes – record up to 5 minutes of audio directly on a page. Accessible via Insert -> More… -> Voice Note.






  • Hand Grab Tool – grab and move the whiteboard. Accessible by holding down the space bar.





  • Zoom in and out by holding down Ctrl while moving your mouse’s scroll wheel.


  • Comments are now translatable to and from many languages.





  • Speed Optimizations – This release added some changes to speed up Vyew a bit. More optimizations coming next month.

Touch Devices:

We’ve begun work on getting Vyew to play nicer on Android tablets. Our first set of improvements:

  • Scroll around the whiteboard with a finger swipe.
  • Tap whiteboard media to select them.
  • Most other scrollable components (e.g., chat history, userlist) are finger-scrollable too.

Bug Fixes:

  • Youtube videos now playable by Collaborators or Viewers.
  • Comments -> Filter -> Filter by User now always shows the commenter’s actual screen names.
  • Create New Comment popup now shows the latest comment you’re replying to instead of just the original “head” comment.
  • Dynamic Button plugin is now always on top of regular whiteboard media.
  • Comment Summary now includes task/approval info.
  • Page Voice Notes – Easily record up to 5 minutes of audio on each page
