Tips for making the most of Coda


The Basics
Coda is a doc! So, you can do very doc-like things, like take notes or write project briefs in Coda. If you want to learn how to use things like collapsible text, drag-and-drop editing, outlines and other text formatting tricks to keep your docs engaging, check out this piece from a Coda PM:
Some Differences
Coda hasn’t (yet) built a call-outs feature like Notion. But as you’ve seen in other pages in this doc, you can generally make do with the “code block” formatting option to draw attention to important content.
💡Tip: You can use code blocks along with things like emoji 😄, boldface, italics, underline, and text coloring for additional emphasis and attention.
Coda hasn’t built this one yet, either, but . , I’d bet we see something on this front soon.
Until then, a few tips for importing from Notion:
Multi-column layouts will be understood by Coda’s importer as separate columns of information that should be grouped together. This means that all the text from Column 1 will be grouped together, and then the text from Column 2, etc.
However, if you have line breaks in your columns (think: empty gray rectangles when you highlight a multi-column area in Notion), this will result in breaking up the data and could garble your syntax

Try clicking the ⋯ next to your doc name or using a keyboard shortcut (
