I've noticed that when I press around a document the cursor does not immediately go to its spot. There's about a 200ms delay.

1. Click somewhere on your document, the keyboard will be shown.

2. Now just press around in different areas of the document, you'll see there's a 200ms delay or so from the time that you press to the time that the cursor goes to that position.

This doesn't happen in iOS 'Notes' for example, where the cursor moves immediately as you press.

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no, minimal-ui">

<p>Click the button to open an output stream in a new window, add some text, then close the output stream.</p>

<button onclick="myFunction()">Try it</button>

function myFunction() {
var w = window.open();
w.document.write("<h1>Hello World!</h1>");

Can't add folders from google drive (including children folders). Not gonna lie, I'm returning this app until it works. First-time user installing the app. Right now using 2-factor authentication (able to successfully sign in) and 100GB subscription to Google drive.

I was all excited when I saw OneDrive as option from which to open files. However after tapping Open and navigating through the OneDrive directory, and selecting the file, the app just returns to the main screen and the file never appears anywhere

after upgrading to iOS 10, occasionally the menu of symbols at the bottom of the screen disappears (the menu for connecting to a remote site, file properties etc). It reappears if you close and relaunch the app

I am not using Textastic 6. Didn't see the point in paying for an upgrade. But now I can't access any of my files! Help.
