How to: Coda remove default code formatting?

I code format like this…

h1 {

Coda auto formats like this as I write the rules…
h1 {
____width: 480px;
____height: 200px;

Notice the tab and the space after the width. Anyway to remove this auto feature?

I know this is an old thread, but if you’re still having that problem… Go to Coda > Preferences, click on the Editor tab, and uncheck “Indent new lines.” This will stop the indentations in every file though. :slight_smile: But I’m not sure if there’s a way to remove the space after the colons… I usually just backspace every time it does that.

Nice solution Jason!

Maybe you know how to “beautify” code in Coda? I couldn’t find plugin or AppleScript for that.

I’m not sure if this is what you mean, but I have a plugin called “PHP & Web Toolkit” ( It can tidy code, validate it, and minify it. :slight_smile: That’s the only plugin I use and it works great! I don’t know if that’s what you want though, because it’ll automatically add the indentations when you “tidy” your code.
