I am brand new to coda, and I am having issues with just “typing text” onto a page. I will start typing and the “/” will try to superimpose on the text. And even if I finish typing a word or sentence, then hit Return (I am on a Mac, using a wireless Mac Keyboard), the word/sentence just disappears, and the cursor just moves down to the next line. Am I missing something here? Issue with Coda for Mac???
This error is in Chrome browser, but when I am in Safari, it does not have this error. Is Coda not compatible with Chrome??
Hi @Justin_Knepper and Welcome to the Community !
I’ve been using Coda on a Mac and Chrome since 2019 and never encountered such troubles … This is just to tell you that Coda is compatible with Chrome and Mac .
I tested with a Magic Keyboard too (just in case ) but I can’t reproduce the problem you’re describing …
I don’t have a Mac M1 though, so I can’t push my tests further (as this could also potentially be a Chrome issue)
I would recommend you to contact Coda’s Support directly (through Intercom… by clicking on the big bold question mark (
?) you should find at the bottom right of your screen when you’re in a doc )
Edit : Note that in Coda there’s indeed a
/Slash Command menu, which will appear each time you type
/ on the canvas and it will allow you to create content directly from the menu :
Enter will open the menu to create a table.
/Slash Command is automatically triggered by typing
/ and if the
Command (what follows the
/) is not recognise by Coda and you hit
Enter, the menu will simply disappear .
Example : If you type
/random sentence here +
Enter… The whole thing will disappear (but during my tests, it also opens the right panel
There’s no way to prevent the
/Slash Command menu to open when using the
/ in a sentence, but it can be closed (before typing anything else) by hitting
Did you, by any chance @Justin_Knepper used
/ in your sentence and maybe didn’t see the
/Slash Command menu ?
THANK YOU for the quick feedback. Good to know that it should be working (I also have Magic Keyboard), so I will contact the Intercom for further assistance. And I had not used the “/” in my sentence so it is really wierd that it is doing this on me. Hopefully I can get this resolved soon as I would like to see if this is the program to help organize me in 2022.
