👋 Hey there!

Im not going to lie. Ever since I started using Coda I wanted to use more of those handy icons in the side bar that get assigned to pages elsewhere in my documents

If you are like me and have always wanted to use Coda Icons in your documents, tables, and Canvas, the time has finally come. Read below to see some examples of how they could be used and how to get these icons for your own docs.

Some info about Scott -
The Icon Man
Forest
I’ve always loved the forest and specifically moved to Santa Cruz, CA just to be nearer to the Redwoods. If Im not whipping up some sweet Coda docs you can find me under the trees.
Cycling
Mountain biking, road-biking, touring, bike maintenance. The list could go on and on! Anything that involves a bicycle interests me and I strongly believe life is better spent on a bicycle

Coda
I work as a Coda freelancer building beautiful docs and solutions for companies, individuals and teams.
if you are interested or even if you just want to say hi!

Getting the Icons in
your
document
Im sure there are far more ways you can utilize these icons, but if you are looking to start using them in your own doc you just need the table that stores all the icons. That table can be found at this page:


Once you copy that table you can then paste it into your document of choice. Alternatively, copy this entire document, delete the pages that are not the main document, and then convert it into a template that can be easily inserted into
any
document you own.

One last thing
I will admit, it wasn’t easy nor was it a small amount of work getting all these icons
and im still working on getting more than the current
1277
that are there.

If you want to say thanks for the work how about buying me a coffee?
(Or 7 coffees? I have a 9 month old and lets be honest, all I do is drink coffee. You would be funding a real tired dad)
- And if not, I hope you enjoy making your documents just a bit more beautiful.


Want to print your doc?
This is not the way.
Try clicking the ⋯ next to your doc name or using a keyboard shortcut (
CtrlP
) instead.
