By Shubham Goel
Happy February. We had a busy start to the new year with several features and enhancements released this month. From time/date customization to autosaving notes so every bit of info gets captured. 

New Feature: Time & Date Customization

You can now select preferences for time zone and time & date display. This will update how all times and dates are formatted throughout Affinity. You’ll also receive daily notifications & emails at a location-friendly time of day.

New Feature: Filter by Empty Cells

On lists, you can now filter by empty cells on most column types. This will help you quickly hone in on missing info so you can keep your lists up to date.

Filter by Empty Cells AffinityNew Feature: Auto-Saving Notes & Reminder Drafts

Any notes or reminders that you’ve drafted but haven’t yet posted will now be saved as you type. This means you can start drafts and navigate elsewhere without losing any important thoughts.


Auto-Saving Notes & Reminder Drafts Affinity

New Enhancement: Nested Bullets

We now support nested bullets & numbered lists anywhere rich text formatting is available (e.g. notes, reminders, sending emails, etc.). In addition, you’ll be able to copy in text from Evernote or Google Docs without losing nested formatting.
