Hi @BenLee, thanks for checking in.
I’m using it this way because I like that Coda arranges the images next to each other when they are loaded in the same cell, forming a sort of grid view if you enlarge the cell.
This is a more compact display than Cards View and it’s more suitable for my specific use case: a master catalogue of scanned books pages, newspaper articles and photos, that I filter based on the topic I need to write about. Important for me is space efficiency: every book page has its own entry in the db, so it’s a lot of images to display that need to be at hand.
I’ve built a first prototype for my workflow, have a look at the ‘Grid View’ in https://coda.io/@adn/imgtools
The images are rendered through json strings and loaded into a lookup (notice the circular frame around the thumbnails). As mentioned earlier, one issue is with the lightbox not being global for all the items in the cell.
