It’s frustrating to leave the doc you are working in to find another doc you need. And the pain is felt more and more as your team and doc count grows. In the past maybe you’ve used your browser’s bookmarks, relied on search history to find your most frequented docs, or maybe you never closed those docs at all.
Today we’re introducing a better way to find what you need. We’re testing a new navigation tool: quick nav. Quick nav helps you find any doc in your workspace without needing to access the doc list. Now you can search across your workspace, thumb through your folders, and quickly toggle back-and-forth between docs without opening dozes of tabs—all from the doc you’re in.
Anyone can test out quick nav. To enable this feature, open any doc, open the left side bar, click the kebab in upper right, click “Enable quick nav.” You’ll see quick nav immediately appear to the left of the left side bar for your usage.
@bianca - Broadly thank you, been hoping for this for a while now!!
The only point I would make is for larger docs swapping between them like you suggest is not practical as the loading time for our main docs is about 30-60 sec (I just timed it to check), so I would use this to be able to see our doc list without leaving the doc and then open the other doc I need in a new tab.
Glad we could deliver on improving doc navigation!
@Micah_Lucero beat me to it but I realize lengthy load times aren’t conducive to doing your best work. We’re continuously investing in improved performance to make sure your experience is seamless, but I will say 30-60 load times is a bit out of the ordinary.
I’m sure the Community Champions have some tips on improving doc performance locally, but if you’d like additional help, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team can make further recommendations to shrink that load time.
Earlier this month we introduced quick nav to make it easier to find the docs you need. Today, I’m excited to introduce keyboard shortcuts to make navigating within your workspace and your docs simpler.
Now you can pin and unpin quick nav depending on your spacing needs by typing Command + Opt + Shift + \ and even toggle quick nav on and off with Command + Shift + \.
If you ever need help remembering a shortcut, you can find the full list under the Insert Panel > Learn Coda > Keyboard Shortcuts.
