Coda Quick Tip #1: Toolbar Resize

April 23, 2007 @ 10:40 PM Pacific

By command-clicking the standard toolbar widget in the upper-right corner of the Coda window, you can cycle through the various toolbar sizes -- small icons, no labels, labels-only, etc. My favorite? Regular size icons without labels.

In case you didn't know, this works in your other Mac OS X applications too. :)

Oh holy crap I never knew about that! Thanks!

I knew that normal-clicking the toolbar widget would toggle its visibility but I didn't know about the icons/labels thing. I also never even realized that the icons/labels thing was standard functionality, I just figured it was something that most app authors were nice enough to provide.

Nice tip! Is there no end of key combos in OS X? It's like learning Streetfighter II all over again.

Oh yes, the toolbar-size cycler, a classic.

There is ALWAYS a key combo you've never heard about in Mac OS X, mistercharlie.

It's worth noting, that you can also change your toolbar settings via the View menu. See View->Toolbar Display. Enjoi!
