A couple of weeks ago we announced Double Click to Edit a text component in the builder. We wanted you to stay in the flow and focus on your content. For the same reasons, we are releasing Double Click to Rename today. If you want to change the name of a screen or a component, just double click on it. No need to go all the way to the configs panel anymore.

Now you can double click on text components to edit the text quickly!
When you're creating an app visually, shortcuts are essential to preserving your momentum. At Draftbit, we always look for places where we can make your building experience faster. For example, you can now double click any Text component to edit it right away.

🍰 Simpler Screen Creation

admin πŸ‘‹
Adding a screen is simpler than ever!
We removed the intermediary popup that gave you a choice between adding a blank screen or one from our Example Screens gallery. We now take you directly to the gallery, from where you can still add a blank screen if you'd like. A simple change that makes adding screens easier and faster.
