Many of you have asked about this feature, and it's finally here. Superhero's can now blur markups to obfuscate sensitive information. We even flatten the blur into the markup file so it's secure and can't be edited. Upload something and try it out.
We've released the first version of our Chrome extension so that you can take screenshots straight from your browser and on Chrome OS. Install the Markup Hero extension for free from the Chrome Web Store.
Every markup now has link share permissions which determine whether a link can be viewed by others. By default, link share permissions are set to public. Private link settings are only available for Superhero accounts. Read more here.
We released our new Superhero pro plan. Superhero gives you access to all our features including unlimited uploads, markup edits, and history. It will soon include custom privacy and sharing options as well. As a big thank you we are giving early adopters a free year of Superhero with no credit card required. Message us on Intercom to get your free promo code.
You can now insert images into your markups! On any screenshot, multipage image upload, or PDF you can insert images by clicking the Insert Image button or pasting an image from you clipboard using CTRL V / ⌘V.
We've expanded the text size range to allow for smaller and larger fonts. To adjust font outside the default size presets you can simply drag the corner of the text box to scale up and down to fit your needs.
Users can now delete markups they own or created. To delete a markup open the hamburger menu > click on the 3 dots to the right of any of your markups in the My Markups history tab > select Delete markup.
