One issue I have with the Coda formula editor is that autocomplete wants to suggest/enter stuff when I don’t want it to. While I experience this issue fairly often, I have usually been more interested in writing the formula versus trying to document the issue. Here is an example that I finally caught.
Here is my formula as I was in the middle of typing it. You can see that my cursor is just to the right of the highlighted closing parenthesis. (I wish the editor had line numbers!)
I then typed a single comma.
And autocomplete added in its suggestion, which I don’t want.
I want to press enter to move to a new line, but that just finalizes the pill that I don’t want. So then I have to go back to delete the unwanted pill.
Has anyone else experienced this? Do you have suggestions for dealing with this?
I don’t see myself changing the order in which I type formulas. I type formulas based on how I think through the logic, and that means typing the formula in chunks, not top to bottom.
