Offer a "refresh" button in the preview

fjpoblam 4 years ago in iPad • updated 4 years ago 8

Thanks for a great app. It's worth noting, I'm no longer maintaining my websites via laptop, but rather *just* on my iPad, thanks to this app! (I just get out my laptop to download updates and keep copies in sync.)

I've read all the suggestions here, and think I'm not posting duplicates. I'll post three. This is one.


This one, I know, has been suggested before, and perhaps reflects a bug. I have found that, occasionally, the app doesn't display the selected file, but rather, a linked file. For example, if the file previously displayed was "x.html" and if "x.html" had a link to "y.html", and if, during preview, a link to "y.html" was taken, the next time a preview is done, "y.html" is displayed instead of "x.html", and there is no manner in which to restore the display to "x.html".

Add shortcut for copy, cut and paste

Guy Ozery 5 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago 2

Hi,


First of all, I downloaded your app couple of month ago but only now started working with it and its great!


One really annoying thing I encounter many time is the ability to copy paste selections. 

The main problem is if I use the arrows to move in the code I then long press on the text in order to receive the copy paste dialog, many time I miss the exact location and start all over again. 


You have many useful shortcuts above the keyboard but copy, paste and cut in my opinion is the most important one. 


As programmers we always copy and paste code from place to place. 

Please consider adding those shortcuts somewhere... maybe on the floating control (even if real-estate is the concern, add it as a possibility in the configuration... It can save so much time and effort when programming on the iPad without external keyboard) 


Many thanks,

Guy

Configurable buttons for additional keys

Ramon Hackbarth 5 years ago in iPad 0

Using both hands it's especially as a web developer with small hands hard to reach some important keys. It's easy for me to reach the first three buttons on every side, but the buttons I mainly use are in the middle of the keyboard :( It's hard to make such a keyboard fit for everyone, so it's maybe a better solution to make a custom set possible.


At first it would be great to have a possibility to change the order of the buttons, but really nice would be, if it's also possible to have 100% customizable buttons.

It works great with the Logitech bluetooth keyboard. Any chance your going to eventually add open file tabs to the gui ?

Save indicator and/or save button

Tom Livingston 3 years ago in iPad 0
It's a bit nerve wracking to wonder if a file is saved, especially after a lot of time spent working. It would be nice to have an indicator showing when a file is saved or saving, or a way to manually save a file - a button or icon to click

Can I Upload file to FTP and dropbox in one action

Fri13 5 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago 2

Because I use Dropbox to sync my source and use FTP to deploy my code.

So I want to do it at once

First line visible, go to top of the file

semiopat 4 years ago in iPad • updated by Kho Minh Vi 4 years ago 4

Just an annoying behavior: when I open a file,  I can't  see the two first line, because of the bar that hides it. Something to do with that? And what is about the discussion of going up top, down end of the file, and on the beginning and the end of line?

However, thanks for your great job!
