Improving performance

Why is my doc slow, and how can I make it faster?

Updated over a week ago

As your docs grow, there are many things Coda does behind-the-scenes to make it scale and continue to run smoothly. However, there may be cases where some adjustments to a formula or the doc design can help make your doc 10-1000x faster.

Adjustments can be made based on what you are trying to improve:

  1. Rendering: Switching to big pages takes a long time (more than a few seconds) or scrolling through a long page is slower or less smooth than desired.

  2. Calculations: Your doc shows "Calculating" for long periods of time (more than 5 seconds) when you open the doc or when you add, edit or delete data.

3. Memory: If your doc has too much data in it and has difficulty opening.
