Gone are the days of sending someone a doc link and then “no, scroll down”-ing your way to where you need them to be. Now you can gather your entire team in the exact right spot on a page with just a few clicks. All you need to do is drop an anchor.
Here’s how it works.
To generate an anchor link for a specific section of content on a page, click the vertical “…” menu next to the block and select Copy link.
hi @Anna_Kelian1 , I used it today (TimeZone Brussels) and it worked fine. Actually I like this update quite a bit. I often put delete row buttons below a table to avoid human errors and with this option I link to such a button, which gives me some more time to reflect before I hit the button.
Hi Michael, I’m an engineer here at Coda, and can confirm that this is the issue. I’ve identified a fix, and it should go live tomorrow afternoon. Note that the fix will not retroactively change any existing links, so you’ll want to re-copy any deep links that aren’t working as expected once the fix goes live. Thanks everyone for the bug report!
Hi Paul, thank you very much for addressing this issue so quickly!
Do you think there is a chance to get rid of this annoying popup that appears when you hover over the link?
You just want to click on a link to get to the link destination without having to see a popup that doesn’t even has a useful function (editing can be activated from the context menu).
The purpose of the pop up is to tell you where the link is going and give you a preview (especially helpful when the link text doesn’t directly say what the link is). I’ll definitely pass along the feedback, though!
I understand, but for internal links the popup wouldn’t need to be so huge - it just shows the default icon, which has no information value. Maybe you could make the popup delay a bit longer and the popup a bit smaller (only page title and pencil icon).
It seems like anchors are not available on canvas pages. Since Canvas pages can hold a lot of tables, paragraphs and other objects, anchors would be nice, even if they only work within the canvas page itself.
And an outline option would not hurt my feelings either…
