12 Cool New Features and Updates Launched in the Past Years

From the very beginning, our team has been focused on listening to our users, understanding what makes their life easier. This in turn fuelled our growth spurt in the past year. We not only revamped the application UI completely but also introduced tons of new features for our users. In a way, last year has been the year of new launches!”, says Arnab Bandhyopadyay, Founder, DocHipo.

Let’s take a look at all the new launches in DocHipo last year!

October 2020

UI Update: DocHipo Gets a New UI

DocHipo launched the much-awaited new minimalist UI that focuses on creating a fun user experience. The team worked tirelessly for several months to build this amazing new UI that combines simplicity and elegance.

New Integration: Use YouTube Videos in DocHipo

If a picture says more than a thousand words, then a video possibly says more than a thousand pictures! Keeping this in mind, DocHipo launched this cool new integration with YouTube that lets you search for a video (on YouTube) from within the application and use the same on your documents. Making documents engaging and memorable was never this easy!

November 2020

New Feature: DocHipo Launches Snap to Grid

This was requested widely by our user community. And of course, we delivered! With this cool snap-to-grid functionality aligning different widgets on the editor is super easy!  The vertical and horizontal grid lines appear when you are trying to reposition any widget and help you in aligning the same centrally, with the margin, or in respect to any other widget. Now your design elements will be in perfect alignment… every time!

December 2020

New Feature: Remove Background from Pictures

This again was a very in-demand feature! And why not? Be it a promotional post or YouTube thumbnail, adding your face to the graphic is the sure-fire way of making it personal, engaging, and of course, clickable! But the problem is, you possibly cannot use those awesome portraits and selfies without removing the background. With this brand-new background removal feature, you can do it with just one click and in about 20 seconds!

January 2021

New Collection: Brand-new Illustration Library

We saw a growing trend of using fun illustrations to make a document engaging. So, we launched a brand new collection of super cute illustrations in DocHipo. All illustrations are divided into two categories, Solo and Scene. The solos can be used as single elements in different documents such as cards, posters, social posts, etc. On the other hand, scenes tell you a complete story with multiple characters and backgrounds.

Since the launch, we have been adding new illustration packs to this collection almost every week! Here’s a sneak peek!

February 2021

New Collection: DocHipo Gets a New Lines Library

The Lines library was completely revamped! Unlike in the past, you can now adjust the line thickness from the contextual menu bar. In the case of decorated lines, if you drag a line on either side, the pattern gets repeated magically. This saves a lot of your time as you are no more required to clone a line to repeat the pattern. How cool is that!

New Integration: Save Designs to Mailchimp

This one is for all you marketers out there! If you are using Mailchimp as your email campaign tool, then this integration lets you save any design straight into your Mailchimp account from within DocHipo. Now is the time to create stunning email headers and use them without a fuss! See how it works here!

March 2021

UI Update: Responsive Masonry Grid Layout

DocHipo launched a responsive masonry grid layout for the documents and templates pages so that these pages look perfect for every screen size. It does not matter which device you are using – you’ll have the perfect layout every time – with both documents and templates laid out across the full width of the page.

May 2021

UI Update: Revamped Download Widget

DocHipo revamped the document download widget. This UI update comes with a lot of added functionalities too! The best and the most noticeable change is that you can now see a thumbnail view of the document you are about to download. An added advantage of this interface is scalability. Soon, we are planning to add more file types, and this UI will help us keep the interface neat while adding more file types.

June 2021

UI Update: Revamped Templates Section

This UI update was launched to represent the document types more realistically in a way that helps you visualize the use-case for the same. So, in the Business Essentials section, we have Infographic, Flyer, Poster, and Presentation neatly displayed in a way that resembles the actual use-cases for these types of documents. The same goes for General Purpose document types, Web Banners, and Social Graphics. With this new interface, you can relate to these document types in an instant at a glance.

July 2021

New Feature: Search Stock Videos

This feature made it super easy for you to use stock videos in your documents. You can now search for copyright-free stock videos from within the DocHipo editor and use them in your documents. By default, the video will play on loop on preview, present, and the publish page. However, you have the option to disable the loop as well.

New Feature: Group-Ungroup Widgets

If you are working on a document with multiple widgets like text, images, icons – this feature makes it super-easy to select them at one go. Once selected, you can reposition or resize them, as required. What’s more, you can group these widgets as well.

Once you select the widgets you would like to group, click on the Group option from the editing menu. Once Grouped, you still have the contextual editing options for individual widgets. In case, you wish to ungroup the widgets, select the group, and the ungroup option would be available on the editing menu.
