I like your text editor! But please support new VHDL syntax from VHDL-2008. I bought this specifically to edit VHDL and Tex. For a start, have block comments at least.

Hi, 


I added a SFTP connection to my server.  I was going through my directory structure, but the Textastic interface would not follow symlinks on my server.  It read them as files and tried to download them.  Since all of my web files are in a symlinked directory, this issue makes Textastic unusable for me.  I'd love it if this could be fixed soon!


Thanks,

Josh

the editor is awesome, but missing one important feature: github support, or even better, git support

Just wanted to mention that Alt-Cmd-I does not toggle file properties popover on my device... Not a very big deal...
Thanks for making this very good Textastic 5.

My primary use of Text Expander (TE) is to insert HTML tags. For example, I have set up a snippet so that when I type p; it is expanded to <br><br>


In Textastic, when I type


Hello World.p;


the p; does not expand the first time. When I erase the p; and type it again, then it expands as it is supposed to. But when I put a space before the snippet shortcut, it works the first time:


Hello Word. p;


I think TE snippet shortcuts should expand immediately the first time, without having to erase and retype them, and without having to put an unnecessary and unwanted space before them.


Thank you for checking into this. BTW, I love your app ... keep up the awesome work!

Hi,

I may be the only person requesting this, but we'll see if anyone else jumps in.

The standard font for screenwriting (and some playwriting) is Courier.  Courier New, on the other hand, (which is built into Textastic) tends to be discouraged, as it is extremely thin and much harder to read.

Consequently, it would be great to see standard, heavier Courier as a font option, especially since Fountain syntax highlighting now works beautifully in Textastic.

Whether or not this request makes the cut, Textastic is pure awesomeness.  Looking forward for the upcoming update.

Thanks!

-Tim

My style sheets aren't applied to the HTML code in preview, is this something that is missing? Or am I doing something wrong?

1. Please can you add to application options for edit (realtime) files on FTP? Now I have to download file, edit file and again upload what take a lot of time...


2. Next function is about AutoBackup. So for example I have in the application file index.js which I am editing very often and I don't want lose it also I don't have time for upload it every time...so basically a select file, set time and application will backup file/folder automatically...


3. Last idea is javascript console in preview/browser. Very simple console where I can see log or where I can enter simple JS command. Also will be good some button/function for add jQuery support to file... ;)
