  • Email notifications when you sign up or purchase Letter

  • Newly added sign up/sign in pages (previously these were only modals, with no direct url)

  • Drag and drop bugs fixed for Safari browser (sometimes, the browser would freeze if you dragged from the wrong part of the drag handle - now resolved)

  • Placeholders for premium components

  • Color picker positioning fixed - previously you couldn't select the left side of the colour picker properly
