Tables and Views are some of Coda’s most fundamental, powerful building blocks. For quite some time, various settings and formatting options have been scattered about our UI. Today, we’ve pulled most of them together into one configuration panel.
In addition to giving these settings a more uniform home that looks and feels more like other settings menus in Coda, our user testing revealed that this has the added benefit of allowing you to make changes (like configuring conditional formatting) without a drop-down menu obscuring your view of your selections.
As you’ll notice, Tables now only show Filter, Sort, Columns and Options . To adjust any other settings or formats, you must click ‘Options.’ As shown in the GIF above, Conditional Formatting is accessed via the ‘Options’ entry-point.
In addition to aggregating options in the right-side panel, we’ve also decoupled ‘Sort’ and ‘Group’ so that they can be more easily managed as separate table settings. You can access ‘Sort’ from the Table or the Options menu; ‘Group’ is now its own option in the Options menu.
Finally, based on your feedback, we used this opportunity to move the ‘Show’ and ‘Hide’ options for a table’s title closer to the title. While toggle used to be in the ‘Display’ panel, it is now accessible via the ‘kebab’ (three vertical dots) menu right next to the table title itself. This should reduce the number of clicks it takes to hide a table’s title.
Thank you for the great feedbackーespecially from our Beta testersーand we hope this creates a cleaner, more uniform formatting experience for you and your tables!
