The report screen now sports a selection between three typeface styles: sans serif (default style), serif, and monospaced.
Report typeface selection
The new question locking feature makes it possible to create question templates that are locked from editing. By locking a question you ensure that any canned text cannot be overwritten.
A typical use case is to create a set of standard questions that must be duplicated before they can be edited. When you duplicate a locked item, the copy will be automatically unlocked.
In the example below you see a "Company template" and three copies of it ("Holding One", "Company X", and "Company Y").
Auto-scaling edit fields
The text editor inside the question form now auto-scales its height depending on the number of lines.
This not only happens while typing but also when opening the question form. The height of each text field is adjusted to the size of the content, even when edits were made by other users.
You can now use Markdown syntax inside the question, answer, advisory, and remarks fields.
Example of Markdown inside the question field:
Example of the question field as displayed by the report feature:
Markdown is easy to learn, check out https://www.markdownguide.org/basic-syntax/ or https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax by the inventor of Markdown.
This is an optional feature, you can continue to use plain text.
A new report feature has been added which makes it possible to display and review all questions and answers inside Operand without having to first create an export.

Question tree loading
The question tree now loads twice as fast as before.
The uploading and replacing of export templates has been improved.
You can now attach files such as images and documents to questions.
Three different upload methods are offered to provide the fastest possible way to attach any kind of file:
- Drag and drop one or more files.
- Paste an image straight from the clipboard, eliminating steps to save the image to disk first.
- Select files using a traditional file picker.
Attached files are also embedded and linked to in report exports.
You can preview attached images by clicking the 👁️ icon or the filename.
Operand's documentation has been expanded and moved to a new home: https://www.notion.so/How-to-use-Operand-4d72f5a87269472396b118ee3accd511.
Interviewers can now broadcast messages to each other which are immediately displayed to all project members inside the interview screen. Use this feature to share links, names of people to interview, or important findings.
