What are Documents?

Documents contain the content you write with Hypotenuse. Think of it like a supercharged AI-powered editor with advanced AI capabilities and tools.

Create a new document by first going to the Documents section from the sidebar. You'll have 3 options to choose from:

  1. Create new doc: opens a blank document to start from scratch.
  2. Create blog article: opens our Blog Article Workflow, which takes you through a step-by-step flow to create a blog from your input and talking points.
  3. Use Template: opens our Template Library with a variety of AI tools that will help you generate content using set templates.

Using the AI tools in the editor

A brief introduction on how AI works

Hypotenuse’s AI-driven document editor is like having a personal assistant at your side.

The AI is trained to take your instructions, and look at what's already in the document to continue writing something that reflects your intentions, while also offering suggestions of its own based on its deep knowledge of the general world.

Like any assistant, Hypotenuse's AI can only do as good a job as the instructions it's given. That's why it's important to provide clear and concise instructions, such as the format you'd like the content to be written in.


Think of the Compose button like a magic wand that automatically takes all the guesswork out of crafting your perfect piece of content.

Click the Compose button to have Hypotenuse continue writing based on the text before your cursor. Hypotenuse will look for patterns, instructions, and clues in your text to determine the next steps.

There are two main ways you can use it: continue your writing, or act on a command.

How to continue writing

Simply click the Compose button to start, and it will detect what you've already written, recognize the patterns of what you've written and add more detail to it. This is perfect for when you're stuck or need some inspiration to keep your content flowing.

Tip: Press cmd/ctrl + Enter  to start Compose.

How to act on a command

Type a command, followed by clicking the Compose button.

Commands is a magical tool that lets you highlight any content, then ask AI to rework from your instructions or a list of pre-built commands.

To activate Commands, use your cursor to highlight the text, then click “Commands” right above the text.

Best practices


The title section is crucial for providing context when Hypotenuse generates content. Filling it in helps the AI understand what you want your content to be about.

Cursor position

Hypotenuse reads and writes where your cursor is placed. It reads 2,000-3,000 characters above the cursor, as well as your headings, and nothing after it.
