Welcome to February, y’all! Seattle saw its first snow of 2019 last night, which is always an event worth celebrating. I’m writing this from a friend’s couch and watching a very slow Super Bowl (and a very mediocre Maroon Five performance.)
Some new stuff from January:
I’m super pumped about this one! You can now copy and paste HTML or rich text from sources like Google Docs, Microsoft Word, or random web pages and Buttondown will automatically convert it into Markdown.
This looks small but is big — we’ve rearchitected the draft view to add this little information pane. Right now, there are just two things — the link checker and the word count — but it will get more helpful and complex over time.
(And yeah, okay, y’all win. There’s a word counter now.)
We’ve enhanced the subscriber information chart in the Analytics page to show more information about where those subscribers are coming from!
Some stuff I want to work on more in February:
It is a wild understatement to say that Buttondown would not exist or thrive without the support of the folks that use it, pay for it, write about it, report bugs about it, suggest features for it… you get the idea.
Have a good one, y’all, and always feel free to email me if you need anything!
