Support SwipeSelection

Steven Lu 3 years ago in iPhone 0
SwipeSelection used to work on iOS6 with textastic, but currently, on my iPhone 6+ with iOS8.1, the Textastic app doesn't fully work with SwipeSelection Pro (a Cydia tweak) -- it allows you to swipe back and forth across only about two characters. 

Hopefully you can take a look and see if this is an issue that can be fixed. 

Even better, if it can be supported natively by the app. There was a concern raised here (http://feedback.textasticapp.com/topic/114900-swipe-selection/) about special characters, but the way to deal with that is to just disable the swipe functionality when the key has been held, so that both features can be used together.

iPhone X UI Issues

Ara Adkins 3 weeks ago in iPhone • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 weeks ago 3

While the UI functions fine there are a couple of visual issues with Textastic on the iPhone X when editing a file:

  1. The addon keyboard does not span the width of the entire screen, making it fairly difficult to touch.
  2. The top of the screen features a grey bar (though in practice this is mostly hid under the notch). 

Please see the image below for a depiction of both issues.

Custom template not showing up in template list

Jake Rayson 2 months ago in iPhone • updated 2 months ago 3

I followed the instructions for creating a custom template on Textastic 6.4.1 on an iPhone 6 10.3.3. It's a Markdown template for my static site generator, using Front Matter, in a file called fm.json. It is saved in a folder in Local Files called #Textastic/Templates


However, after restarting Textastic, the template isn't appearing in the list :(


Any ideas why? Many thanks, Jake

Unable to open Working Copy folders in Textastic

Ara Adkins 2 months ago in iPhone • updated 2 months ago 4

The combination of the latest Textastic version (6.4, iOS) and the latest update to Working Copy (3.1.0) it is now impossible to pick folders for inclusion at the top level on iPhone. While it is possible to drag and drop on the iPad, there is no equivalent solution for iPhone.


It's a big workflow damper for making broader changes across repos as the picker in Files can be quite slow in larger repositories (not that this is your issue).

Google Drive file uploading

beaboutclayton 7 months ago in iPhone • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 months ago 1

Mostly I have only been programming in C++ and just bought Textastic to look over and edit my code. Only problem is that I cannot access .cpp files. Uploading them into a folder on Google drive is no problem, but accessing them via the app isn't working. I converted some files to .txt and they would work. Let me know if there is a solution.
