Adding talks after highlighted words and sentences while viewing pages
Before, when commenting text with Talk in View mode, you could add an inline comment to the end of a paragraph.
But sometimes to preserve the context, you need to add a talk inside a paragraph - after a certain sentence or word. While it can be easily done when editing a page, this functionality wasn't available in the View mode until now.
Talk version 3.0.0 brings in this capability. Now you can add talks after selected text snippets when viewing Confluence pages:
- select some text fragment (words, sentences) while viewing a page
- choose the Talk icon in the pop-up panel
- type your comment and click Save
- a talk will be inserted after the last word (symbol) of the selected text fragment
This feature is available for Confluence 5.4 and above.
Browser tab notifications about new replies in talks
We've implemented browser tab notifications that will alert you when there is a new reply in one of the talks on a Confluence page that is open in your browser.
It helps you not to miss new replies in Talk discussions when you are:
- browsing a page with talks, but the Talk sidebar is collapsed
- browsing a long page with talks and there is a new reply in the talk that is in the part of the page that is not currently displayed on your screen
- browsing some other page and have a new reply added in the talk on the page that is open in another tab
When there is a new Talk reply on the page that is open in your browser, you will see '(T)' added in the beginning of the tab name.
