Hi all! Today we’re adding a few new ways to format your text.
Coda docs have long had checkboxes in tables, and sometimes in canvas controls. But until now, they’ve been missing in one key place: text.
You can now add simple checklists to any text in Coda (and yes, even within a table cell!). While we were at it, we also added a bit of color to all checkboxes in your doc.
We designed the new checkboxes to be lightweight and fit anywhere you can type text. If you want more advanced capabilities like filtering out checked items, customizing formatting, or annotating items with additional lines, tables with checkbox columns are still your best bet.
Sometimes you want part of your text to stand out from the rest of your content. We’re introducing two new styles built for this: block quotes and pull quotes.
Menu & shortcuts
You’ll find the new styles on the updated text styles menu:
The menu also now shows the markdown shortcuts you can use to directly apply a format on the start of any a new line (And if you select existing text, it’ll show you the shortcuts you can use to convert it to each style).
Here’s a recap of the new ones:
