We’ve had a number of ways to copy a doc in our product for some time. You can copy a doc from your workspace doc list, from the title of a doc or from the “Copy Doc” call to action on published docs with copying enabled.
But at Coda, one of our values is “Right over Familiar.”
And we couldn’t ignore the trend we saw in docs published to the Doc Gallery where the author includes some text explaining how to copy their doc so that a reader may use and customize it. So today, we’re adding another option for copying docs that can live in-line with your text, tables and views: a “Copy Doc” button type.
You can insert and configure this button just as you would other buttons like “Add Row,” "Notify User,” and “Open Hyperlink.” It is available for insertion via the / command as well as the Explore panel.
You can use the Copy Doc button type in private docs, docs you use to collaborate with your team or published docs. As with other buttons, users will need to sign in to Coda in order to interact with the copy doc button.
We hope this makes it even more intuitive for your doc viewers and editors to know when and how to copy your great docs!
