Yesterday, we looked at a few different tips and trick features hiding around in Coda 2.
Hopefully you’ve had a little time to let them soak-in and try them during your work day.
Today, we’re going to look at a few more, and hopefully by the end of it all, you will have learned, practiced and become a Coda 2 Ninja.
1. Adjustable Tabs
For me, this was a no brainer. I figured this one out on my own in the first few minutes. However, I have read in a few places on the Internet of people complaining about Coda 2′s huge tabs. When I first opened up Coda 2, the tabs really caught my eye, since it was a deviation from the usual horizontal glossy circles normally seen in OS X.
Here’s how to resize them, if you’re interested in freeing up some space:
Simply drag the bottom. Float your mouse around the base of the tabs and watch your pointer change. You can increase your tabs and decrease them so it becomes ‘Text Tabs,’ as seen here:
2. Hide or Show Specific File Types
When you’re sniffing around in your files via Coda 2, you may not want to see the ‘hidden files’ on your server. Sure, you can toggle between “Show Invisible Files” and “Hide,” but what if you want to see your .htaccess file?
Visit your Coda 2 Preferences pane:
You can toggle between ‘Skip,’ Show,’ and ‘Hide.’
3. Preview in Simulated Mode
This one is cool!
By clicking on the gear in the bottom left of the ‘Preview’ pane, you can simulate multiple browsers.
Including iOS devices!
Here’s my site in mobile view:
Mmmm. Responsive goodness via Standard 3.
Although it’s not as perfect as testing on an actual device or browser, it gives you a serious head-start and is a huge time saver!
4. Quick Code Navigation
You may have already stumbled onto this one, but it’s pretty cool.
By clicking on the document name in the ‘Path Bar,’ you can jump to different parts of your document:
Not only is this handy for thick documents, it’s really great for long CSS files, too.
