We are pleased to introduce ScrollDocuments 2.3.0-ac which is a feature and improvement release.
This update introduces improvements to the Document create, delete and save a version options and includes changes to the Document Toolbox.
We have also embedded help articles from our documentation in the app, so that you can now get help without leaving the app.
With this release we are dropping support for Confluence versions older than 6.12.
In-App Help now available
Scroll Documents now uses Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud in-app help feature to bring help articles to you right in the app. Simply click the help links that appear next to our K15t logo on various screens of the app (at the bottom). A small pop up will appear with further help and helpful information about our features and app options.

From here, open the Confluence editor to add and change page content, or make use of the most important app actions from the Document Toolbox - now opened up by default for your convenience.
To improve transparency and visibility, we have also changed the default location of newly created Scroll Documents to the Space Home page. If you keep the default, you will see the page tree of your newly created Scroll Document right in your space sidebar - without the need to expand any additional parent pages.
We are now making it easier to understand what happens when you delete a document and help you take an informed decision on whether you want to keep underlying Confluence pages or delete everything, including the metadata and different versions of a Scroll Document.
Changes to the Document Toolbox
We have condensed the options in the Document Toolbox (accessible from all Confluence pages that are part of a document) to the key actions. At the same time, we are making it easier to switch between versions and understand which version you are looking at.
Changes to Save a version
When saving a version you can now find all additional options like editing the prefix in the 'Advanced' tab:
