Would be great if the iPad preview window had support for bookmarklets or the ability to toggle a responsive / iPhone or "phone" sized screen size. I've been looking around trying to figure out how to test responsive sizes and bookmarklets seems to be a no brainer, similar to firebug lite. The UI could resemble the new Firefox Web Development tools responsive size tool.

I'd like an option to be able to see the extra keys even when I'm using a bluetooth keyboard.

I know that Apple limits code execution on iPad, but on Jailbreak device?

Could you try this way....

Is it possible to translate Textastic UI? If so, I'd like to help, because I love it and use it almost every day. It would be much easier for me to work with it if it was in my native (Czech) language :)
thx for answer

I am not sure when it happened but it did.

The magnifier orientation was opposite from the text orientation.  

Probably because I switched the iPad orientation number of times. 

I tried to restart the app and now its ok but it means that there are rare case that you lose track of orientation. 




This should be fixed in the next update.

Because the auto complete feature is triggered by pressing the return key, what happens is that even if I don’t want to use a snippet and just go to a new line, the snippet is triggered. For example, when I write an else block, I like to have the braces under the else keyword, unlike the snippet which puts them right after the keyword ( in the same line)

When I try to take it down one line (by pressing the enter key when the cursor is right before the opening brace), the else if snippet is triggered, when I didn't even need it.

I would like the snippets to be triggered only when I specifically tap them (or press return on a physical keyboard when the snippet is highlighted. This would greatly improve my coding speed

I would love you to add a function to the find and replace option. Add the option to find and replace in all open docs. For ipad Pro 12.9 iOS11.1
That would almost make this app perfect.

iOS added a visible files folder.  I was able to get a screenshot from photos to that file, but I am still trying to show it on a webpage.
