Entering and formatting text

A central piece of Condens is it's text editor. This is where a large portion of your work will happen, be it during preparation for your next project, creating notes of your research activities or crafting engaging reports and presentations for your stakeholders.

Fortunately, Condens' text editor is designed to make this part as fun and efficient as possible, offering a ton of handy formatting features and time-saving keyboard shortcuts.

The basics

Editing text in Condens is similar to other text editors you already know. However we've made a few tweaks to make creating well structured notes from user research easier and faster.

Notes are saved automatically, that's why Condens doesn't have a save button.

There is a defined set of text formatting options to help you and your team create consistent notes and reports. You can change the formatting of the text by clicking on the icon left of the respective paragraph and choose your preferred option.

To format parts of a paragraph or larger sections with multiple paragraphs, you can use the tooltip menu that appears when you select text. This way you can also add comments to start a discussion with colleagues or add highlights and tags on Participant notes.

Tip: To speed things up, you can use the shortcuts displayed next to the formatting options or in the tooltip that appears when hovering over the buttons.

Collaborative notetaking

Note-taking in Condens works collaboratively so multiple people can work on the same document in real-time. For each user working on a document, Condens will display their cursor and current selection.
