Templating: InDesign - 2 Font Types in One Package Not Possible
To display correctly in editing mode, fonts had to be of the same font type (OTF or TTF). Now it's possible to mix the two font types in the InDesign package and it still looks correct in editing mode. Existing templates that had this issue need to be reuploaded (replaced).
Templating: Change Download Name of Publication Assets
We improved the consistency of download names for downloaded publications. We now consider the Template Names (that can be defined in the Template Library) as download names for the downloaded assets.
Media Library: Preview for PSB Format Files

Libraries: Manage Targets When Sharing Collections Publicly
We just made external sharing of Collections more powerful by allowing you to set whether targeted assets within a collection in a specific Library can be shared publicly or not. Be on the safe side and exclude all targeted assets from external sharing. Or make sure to enable all brand builders by allowing users to share all assets they see, including targeted ones, publicly.
Digital & Print Templates: Publisher: Auto-Sizing Options for Elements that don't Work with Auto-Sizing
For non-rectangle images, the "auto-sizing" options don't work. This is why we removed the option to add "auto-sizing" for all non-rectangle image elements (e.g. polygons).

Platform: Manage Users Easily with Sticky Header
With sticky headers, the user knows what each column represents in the user management area, no matter how deep they scroll in the pages.

We fixed an issue where Collections could not be downloaded when some of the assets were download protected. You can now continue to download the unprotected assets the protected ones will be excluded.
Templating: Auto-Sizing options for Elements that don't work with autosizing
For non-rectangle images, the "auto-sizing" options don't work. This is why we removed the option to add "auto-sizing" for all non-rectangle image elements (e.g. polygons).
Libraries: Shared Collections on Self-service are Protected for Download
Fixed an issue where assets of a shared Collection could not have been downloaded if the download request feature was disabled.
Templating: Text Size Changes Incorrectly Allowed
Text Size Changes in Publications were enabled although they had never been actively allowed. This behavior has been fixed - now the font size can only be changed when it's explicitly allowed.
Templating: Template Title Replaced by Original File Name
When a template gets replaced over the "replace" button, any name given to the template was being overwritten by the name of the replaced file. This behavior has been changed. Template names are now kept on Replace.

When having multiple custom pdf presets, we only considered the first one to be applied. This has been fixed - now all installed custom pdf presets are being applied on publications.

Libraries: Sharing Collections
It's never been easier to share collections of assets both internally, as well as with external viewers! As the curator, you have even more control over who can access your Collections. Share directly from the library backend, add additional protection to the Collection in the form of password and/or validity dates, and even determine if your curated collections can be shared externally by users from the guidelines. Learn all about it in our updated Collections help article.
Libraries: Add/Edit Facets or Filters Not Possible if User is Not Editor in Backend Project
We fixed an issue where only users with edit permissions in the backend Libraries could add or edit facets or filters. Now, a user only needs edit permission in the frontend document to perform this action.
Media Library: Protected Assets with Auto Approval Cannot be Downloaded in Bulk from Collections
Viewers can now (again) send a request when trying to download a Collection that contains protected assets.
Templating - InDesign: Images Not Fitting the Marked Area
Non-rectangular images (polygons) were replaced using their reference points from InDesign which could lead to a wrong image size of the replaced image. We have now fixed this and polygons are now replaced correctly.
Important: To ensure the correct cropping of your replaced images, it is important that the images behind polygons are cropped to the size of the image frame in the original InDesign file.
Templating: Special Character in File Name Break Template
Special Characters (like | or ?) in the file name of the original IDML file broke the Template or Publication. We fixed this and Publications can be downloaded correctly again.

When Templates or Publications had their first page(s) hidden, we still showed these pages in the Publication's/Template's thumbnails (in the Publication/Template overview, in approvals etc.). This has been fixed, we now show the first visible page as preview.
Templating: Duplicate Publications
Did you create a fantastic publication and want to use it again slightly differently? You now have the option to duplicate (copy) publications.
Projects: Archive Projects
There is now the possibility to archive Projects. You can access this function in the Project overview.

An archived Project can always be reactivated and will not be deleted.

The Error Pages (404 and 403) have now an enhanced copy and links to further navigate to the main landing page and/ or the most recent visited Guidelines. This is personalized based on user behavior.
Libraries: Scale Down Asset Previews to Fit in Collection Tile
We've added a further customization option for the layout options of the Collection tiles. The default "preview image type" setting will continue to fill assets in the preview space of the Collection tile, while the new "scale down" option will instead ensure that e.g. the entire logo asset is displayed within the preview space.
Templating: Font Displayed Wrong in Edit Mode
In some cases (e.g. when the font contained a period) the font in a Template showed a fallback font in edit mode. This has been fixed.

Libraries: Preview Broken for Uploaded Assets
We resolved a bug where the preview was broken for newly uploaded assets when the asset was opened.

Guidelines: Change of Document Title Causes Error Message
We fixed a bug where an error message appeared when the title of a document was changed in the Guidelines.
Media Library: Images Shown in Frontend Search with Wrong Dimensions
Images had the wrong dimensions in the frontend and a grey space appeared next to the image - This has been resolved.

Templating: Support for Resizable Text Fields
We now partially support the "Auto-Size" option in InDesign. You can define auto-sizing for Height, Width, or Height & Width. We support auto-sizing from the corners (but not from the middle) and with the "No Line Breaks" option active. Existing templates need a re-import ("replace") to support the new feature. Check out our help article for more details.

This will apply a watermark to each page of your protected document. Learn more about asset download protection here.
Libraries: Easily Remove Your Query from the Search Bar

Icon Library: Icon Shown With "Valid From" in Icon Library Block
Icons with a "valid from" date were shown in the Guideline Icon Library block, even though the "valid from" date was set to a later date. This has been resolved and icons only show from the correct "valid from" date.

Templating - InDesign - Show Layer Names from InDesign in Publication

The metadata field was also hidden in the backend when the setting "hide" was toggled on instead of only hiding the metadata field in the frontend - This has been resolved.
Templating - No Preview Shown in Template Block
When adding a template block in the Guidelines for the first time, a preview image of the publication has been shown only when creating the first publication - afterwards, it was not shown anymore.

Style Guide: Mouse Cursor Becomes Active When Asset Viewer is Disabled
