Frontitude product updates ✨

Introducing: Changes tab (Figma plugin)

New feature
Announcement

Since we launched Frontitude's Figma plugin, we've been getting requests from our Figma users for supporting a more seamless writing workflow inside Figma.

We understand that many writers use Figma as their writing tool, but they still need a central place to store and maintain all of their product copy.

That's why we created the new Changes tab, that replaces the Export and Updates tabs, and will addresses these needs:

  1. It assists with a better writing workflow inside Figma by allowing you to track copy changes made by you and others, by comparing them to the last version in Frontitude.
  2. It makes it easier for you to sync Figma with Frontitude as your single source for copy. If you're writing in Figma, you can collect copy changes and push them to Frontitude in one click. If you're writing in Frontitude, you can quickly pull the latest copy into Figma.

Click here to learn more how to use the new Changes tab. We'd love to hear your thoughts on this at hi@frontitude.com.

Hide copy from Design View

New feature

In addition to the existing hide from List View, now you can hide copy from Design View as well!

This comes pretty handy when Design View displays texts that shouldn't be visible. Just click Hide > From all views and it will hide the text from the design on Frontitude, to give you a cleaner view.

And no worries -- hidings will only affect Frontitude, while the mockup in the design tool will remain untouched.

Organize your projects into folders

New feature

Now you can create folders in the workspace page to better organize your projects!

Use the New folder button to create a new folder, then drag and drop your existing projects inside the folder. To move the project out of the folder, open the projects card's option menu, and click Move to root.

We've also added an option to rename projects, finally! You can rename folders too, of course.

Try it out!

Sort out your tags using the new tag management section

New feature

We are happy to release the new tag management section, which allows you to easily sort our your tags!

In this new section, you can create new tags, rename and delete existing ones. You can also see the texts that use each one of them by simply clicking on the number next to it.

Next, we plan to let you order them and create tag groups, to take your tag organization to the next level.

Open it here to get your tags in order!

Sync your designs only with relevant copy

New feature

When you sync your designs with the latest copy, filtering copy changes by status can be quite useful.

For example, if you're a designer who wants to handoff your mockups to developers, you'd like to sync only the final copy. Another case is that as part of a design review process, you'd like to ensure that copy fits the design, therefore syncing only copy in review status.

To enable this filter, just click on the settings icon next to the Pull changes button at the bottom of the plugin, and choose what workflow status you wish to filter as part of the sync.

Introducing: Project Discussion Feed

New feature

A major part of writing great UX copy is receiving feedback and discussing it with teammates.

For this reason we created the Project Discussion Feed, which is the place where all project discussions are unified into a single feed.

This way you can keep track of feedback without wasting your time navigating between frames and pages.

Learn more about how to use it in this tutorial.

Learn more about what you can do with it in this tutorial.

And this is just the beginning. Soon, the Search tab will integrate with the upcoming Copy Components, to allow reuse of copy in all of your projects. Stay tuned!

Pull updates for selection

Improvement
Design tool integration

When pulling updates back to the design tool, sometimes you just want to update a specific text element or screen, and not the entire file.

The pull mechanism is now modified to detect selection of any kind, whether it's a single text element, group, or entire screen (a frame or an art board, depending on your design tool).

This way, you can pull change only for any selection, or select nothing to pull changes for the entire design file.

Broken design indication

New feature

Link copy by clicking Link copy on the editing side panel. Frontitude will show all copy containing the current copy text, along with the ability to preview copy in the design so you can ensure you are selecting the desired one.

Automatically update duplicate instances

New feature

When submitting a change to copy, Frontitude now lets you automatically update all of its duplicate instances, so you wouldn't have to do it manually one by one. A duplicate instance is every text in the project which has the same value, font family, font size, and font weight as the changed text has.
