Product Updates

We’re about to release RSpace version 1.60: big changes to our support and documentation features!

Help Documentation

Our written and video help documentation has moved to, and is now easily browseable and searchable:

Help Searchbar

The Intercom button at the bottom-right of your screen has been replaced by a Need Help? button. Clicking on it will open a searchbar (see below), which you can use to search for the following directly inside of RSpace:

  • help documentation articles and videos
  • walkthroughs (search for “Search by ID”), and actions (search for “Change my password”)
  • ways to contact us, such as email, and Intercom is still available under the “Chat with us” option.

Other changes

Finally, you can move entries out of notebooks! This is probably our most-requested improvement. If you own the notebook, and the entry, you can do this easily just like moving documents out of folders.
We’ve also made some improvements to image processing and display; there is now no restriction on the size of TIFF files from which thumbnails can be processed.

Please see our Changelog  for more details.

Looking ahead

The next release will feature a re-working of the search user interface and the ability to restrict searches to within particular folders. Plus, as soon as we get approval from Microsoft for our integration, then for those of you with Microsoft 365 accounts you’ll be able to edit Word, Excel and Powerpoint inside RSpace.

That’s it for now, thanks for reading and please keep the suggestions coming in!
