When you’re in your flow, we know sometimes a mouse just won’t cut it. That’s why I’m excited to share a few updated keyboard shortcuts today!
tl;dr - Here are the new shortcuts!
Command + \to expand and show pages list (
Ctrl + \on Windows) .
- Navigate subpages in the header using
Enterto go to a page link when highlighted.
Shift + Escto navigate from a subpage to its parent page.
Show & Hide Pages List
Command + \ on Macs or
Ctrl + \ on Windows to expand and show your pages list on the left side of your doc. You can also use this to collapse and hide the list.
Navigate to a Subpage
Navigation using the
arrow keys within a page now acknowledges the subpages list at the top of a page (if applicable and shown), as well as the “breadcrumb” that shows the parent page.
If you highlight a subpage or the “breadcrumb” and hit
Enter, you will navigate to that page. The same is true if you highlight an @-mentioned page and then hit
Navigate to the Parent Page
Esc to navigate from a subpage to its parent page.
Some tips for keyboard shortcuts
You can still use the existing shortcuts
Cmd + Opt + [ and
Cmd + Opt + ] (on Macs) and
Ctrl + Alt + Up arrow and
Ctrl + Alt + Down arrow (on Windows) for navigating up and down your page list from anywhere. You can also use also use
Cmd + [ to go Back or
Cmd + ] to go Forward in the browser history on Macs. The corresponding shortcuts are
Alt + Left arrow and
Alt + Right arrow on Windows.
If other applications make use of any of these shortcuts, they may override your use of them within Coda. If that’s the case, you’ll need to update your preferences for that app to disable the shortcut. (A great resource for finding out if this is happening is https://defkey.com/)
And remember, if you need a reminder of keyboard shortcuts, you can access them at any time by typing
Ctrl + / (on Mac) or
Ctrl + Shift + / (on Windows) or opening up the Explore Panel > Learn > Keyboard Shortcuts.
