Read with focus using the QuickScan Pack

If you read from a screen a lot, you probably know how tired your eyes can get after a while.
Words begin to blend in with one another, you lose your place more often, and it becomes harder and harder to process and retain the information you’re reading.
But what if we could use a formatting trick to make it easier to read on a screen? That’s what the QuickScan Pack does. It gives your eyes a focal point for each word, helping you travel through the text like a hot knife through butter.

How does it work?
This Pack simply takes your text as an input, then bolds the first half of each word.
No APIs or logins necessary.
Get started with QuickScan
You can install the QuickScan Pack in any Coda doc. To find it, go to the Insert panel, then Packs. Search for QuickScan, and install the Pack.
QuickScan can be used in a table or on Coda’s canvas. To use it, simply type = , then quickScan(). Set your text, then optionally set the number of characters you want to bold at the start of each word. This is an optional value; if you leave it blank, it will bold half of each word’s characters (rounding up).
And that’s it! That’s how simple it is to use QuickScan.
Searching 'QuickScan' from the Packs menu in the Insert panel of Coda
💡 Tip: Experiment with Coda's two font styles from the Insert > Settings > Page panel, to see which you prefer!
🐘 The elephant in the room
I am aware that this method of ‘speed reading’ is . Whether or not this technique increases your reading speed, comprehension, or retention is your determination to make.
This method seems to help me travel through big blocks of text more easily, which is why I built it. Your mileage may vary. I built this Pack for fun. We’re just having fun here.
