I noticed the grammar point and structure only uses verbs but Wasabi link states:

When you use nouns and na-adjectives, you need to attach だ like 春だと.

and Tae Kim also states:

The natural conditional is used by appending 「と」 for verbs and i-adjectives or 「だと」 for nouns and na-adjectives.

A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar also uses a noun in one example.

Perhaps these could be included in examples sentences/structure?

Hey :cowboy_hat_face:

Thank you for noticing it!
If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t realize that we haven’t added examples for nouns and adjectives!

We will likely add those as separate grammar point, for the time being I will add information that it can be also used with nouns and adjectives!

Thank you!
