Links and references in cells


Hello Community!

I’m excited to share that we’ve completed support for hyperlinks and references in cells. No more compromises - you can now mention people, reference other items in your Coda tables and also link to other web based content.

Let me know if you have any issues! I hope you find it useful.



This is great! Can’t wait to start using this.


This is awwwwesome! Thanks!


I may be doing something wrong - or just not getting it… tried to get the link editor to pop up when putting in a url and I couldn’t. Any tips on that part of it?

this is a great feature though, thanks so much!

nevermind - I figured it out… just have to use the shortcut ctrl + k to edit the hyperlink and blam-o it worked.



Hello Community!

We just finished support for hyperlinks and references in Comments too. This brings parity for text on canvas, in-table cells and comments. Additionally auto-links URLs as you type is also now enabled.

Hi team! Some feedback regarding this feature:

it is confusing to have two ways of making references:
(1) Using the “@” symbol
(2) Using cmd+k (for linking to sections)

I would expect the “@” symbol to also let me make references to sections but it doesn’t give me that option.

Hope this is helpful!

Not sure if I’m doing something wrong, but it doesn’t seem possible to use one of my favourite Coda features when adding hyperlinks to cells: automatic linking.

If I’m just writing on the canvas, I can select some text and Ctrl+V to paste a hyperlink “in to” that text; the formatting just happens automatically.

If I try the same thing on some highlighted text within a cell, it overwrites the text with the full link. Is there anyway to replicate the behaviour of a canvas within a cell?
