🔁 Input Parameter Cell Updates

We made a bunch of updates to Input Parameter Cells. They now include a Run Button, which makes it easy to Run Below after changing a parameter value.

They also include a new "Referenced In" element, which let you quickly see and jump to downstream cells in the project that use the given parameter in their code.

See all of it live in this very quick demo:

👟 Run Mode Options

We've unlocked more options for how cells execute while you're in Logic mode. "Cell + above", "Cell + below", & "All cells" are execution modes which can now be set as a project-wide default or triggered at the individual cell level. Check out the docs or the video below for a breakdown!
