Quick find bar, image resizing, human-friendly URLs

Ctrl + K action bar

Quick find bar & keyboard shortcuts

We've made it easier than ever to find and do what you need in Colabra. Simply press Ctrl + K (⌘ + K on Mac), type what you want to open or achieve, and press enter!

The possibilities are endless, from searching for protocols, printing the experiment summary, navigating to tag governance, or inviting new team members.

You'll see that many of the actions also have keyboard shortcuts you can use to call them directly. For example, try pressing G, B to quickly jump to My bench, or C to create a new experiment your open project.

Image resizing

One of our top requested features — you can now resize large images in your project and experimental summaires! Simply hover the image and click one of the buttons that appear to make the image fit within one half or one quarter of the screen.

URLs with human-friendly IDs

We've replaced the jibberish in Colabra links with clean human-friendly IDs followed by the experiment's name. This is especially handy when sharing Colabra links in Teams or over email.
