⚒️ Other Improvements

  • You can now toggle the legend on/off for encodings in chart cells (color, size, opacity, dash, or detail).
  • If you are on slow or spotty wifi, Hex will helpfully notify you that your connection is unstable and work may not be saved.
  • Markdown headers in apps now have anchor links, so you can send a link directly to a specific section of a published app.
  • When you auto-format code cells with the keyboard shortcut (esc + FS), a toast notification alerts you.
  • You can also now auto-format code without using a keyboard shortcut, from the cell menu.
  • When creating a new project, instead of assuming you want to begin with a python cell, we now ask whether you want to start with a SQL or Python cell.

🔍 Query Details

It's nice to know what to expect from your queries and to track their progress. We now show you the number of rows and total size of the data you're returning right in the SQL cell!

Text Wrapping & (re)Naming Query Results

📃 Text Wrapping

Long text fields? No problem. You can now configure columns in our Table Displays to text wrap!

🔃 Rename Query results

Rename the dataframe returning your query results with a click! Just edit the grey "Returned as dataframe" title and hit enter. You no longer need to re-execute your query for the change to take effect.
