I’m preparing to release my Coda-built project management doc to my team. I think it’s going to be tough for my co-workers to get familiar with the doc at first because of one major thing: It’s hard to tell what’s editable and what’s not at a glance.
I’ve done a lot of work to lay out my tables so that it all feels fairly logical, but it is still admittedly a pretty intimidating tangled spiderweb of formulas. Having that glance value of what can and can’t be touched would be huge to making the onboarding process a lot easier.
Currently you need to hover your mouse over the column and see the “f” to realize that the column is formula based, or otherwise click into the cell to realize that it is not editable. It would be nice if there was a little bit of “conditional formatting” that you could turn on (doc-wide, page-wide, or table-wide) that helps distinguish what you can edit from what you cannot at a glance. Maybe shading formula-determined cells in a light grey?
I’m considering doing this myself manually but it’s going to be difficult to upkeep as the doc continues to evolve.
