A few weeks ago, we invited members of the community to try out a new way to organize your docs. Today, I’m excited to share that we’re beginning to roll-out Pages to all docs. As you may have seen in our Beta Announcement, we’re going a step beyond folders and sections as we introduce Pages. All pages have an editable surface that can contain text, tables, views, etc., and pages can nest within each other. Now, the hierarchy within your doc has no limits.
You should see the feature immediately for any new docs you create. We are rolling it out to existing docs over the next few weeks so it make take a while to see this feature in your docs. If you don’t see the feature in your existing docs, please don’t worryーno action is required on your part. We are upgrading docs as quickly as we can to have access to pages, and it may take a few weeks. Unfortunately, this timing is not in our control.
Folders will become top-level pages. Previously, they functioned only as containers to hold and organize sections. Now, they contain the same editable surface as all other pages, which means they can include text, tables, etc. They can also be given custom icons. (Please note that this means pages that were previously folders will now count as objects in a doc. In the event that you are using a free Coda plan and see notices about approaching object limits for your doc, we’ve compiled some tips from this community to help you keep your doc within the limits for free plans.)
Sections nested under Folders (now pages) will become subpages. They maintain all of their existing features; however, subpages can now be nested underneath each other. So, a subpage can contain a subpage which contains more subpages, etc.
To help with navigation, any page that has subpages within it will show a “Subpages” header. This header shows the next level of pages that you can navigate to. You can choose to hide or control the size of the header in the Page Options panel.
Left Sidebar Hover
The page list on the left of your doc is also getting an upgrade. Now, if the left sidebar is collapsed, hovering your cursor on the left edge of the doc will automatically open it. You can use this to quickly switch to another page, and it will automatically close again when you move your cursor away. If you prefer to permanently reopen the page list, you can still do so by clicking the double-caret icon ( >> ) in the top left corner of your doc.
Open Page in New Tab
Since we added support for opening the same doc in multiple tabs, users wanted a way to quickly open a page in a new tab. Just like links on your favorite websites, Command + Click (on a Mac) or Ctrl + Click (on a PC) will now open a page in a new tab if multi-tab is enabled.
We hope these new navigational and organizational features help you organize your docs with fewer constraints so that they truly grow with you and your team.
