It would be nice, if you could add a mode of editing like in SubEthaEdit. As far as i know, they use an open protocol.

I really like to use your program. But not rarely need to open the code written on the PC in the program in which there is Russian text written on the PC 866 in the encoding when you open it in your program text unfortunately distorts that very uncomfortable ... Dear developers please add in 866 Russian Textastic I'm sure the encoding of the Russian users will be very grateful to you.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English.

I use Textastic in combination with a small app that I open from within Textastic. The app uploads the file to a server, which processes the file and sends the results back to the app. From within the app I can switch back to Textastic. Changes I made to a file were reflected in the results. This was the case with IOS 5.1.1 on iPad 1. I recently switched to iOS 6.0.1 on iPad 4. Now it seems that Open In... from the toolbar button no longer works as before. Open In... from the list view seems to work, although it looks as if I have to wait a bit (10 seconds between saves?).


Regards

Hi,

I am a new user of Textastic and I am glad that it supports Ada. I love the app so far and I load my Ada codes on my iPad now I can read and/or write Ada codes wherever I go.

But I have some wishes and I hope the Textastic developer(s) can realize them.

1.) I wish that Textastic will allow user to customize background and font color. I have been working on black background with amber font color for many many years. I especially like keywords to be Red. This setting soothe my eyes (after many surgeries) very well.

2. I love block cursor. It is more visible to my traumatized eyes.

3. I wish that Textastic  will support Mercurial (and others like SVN etc.) repository check in/out. This will save the troubles transferring files to and from the Mac to check in/out to/from repository.

Thanks in advance for realizing my Textastic wishes. Please continue the good work.

The quick upload feature of Textastic is very useful, However, it only seems to work for files which are downloaded individually. If I download a folder, the location information is lost so it is not possible to do a quick upload, either on the individual files, or on the folder as a whole. What woulds be most useful would be to sync either entire folders, or individual files with a remote location.

Awesome app, thanks!

When programming in HTML I find my self trying out new ideas and simply want to comment out a line or blocks of code. Would it be possible to add "Comment" as a selection when we highlight a line or block of HTML code? I see we have cut, copy, paste, shift left, shift right but would love to see a "comment" selection that when pressed would add the <!-- --> around the selected code.

Thanks

Replace all button does nothing in current version for iOS.

It has worked for me once but I wasn't able to reproduce it.
Answer
In order to speed up the replacement, Textastic uses a different code path when there are more than 15 strings to replace. Unforunately there is a bug in this code path in the latest version.

So, "Replace All" should work if you have less than 15 search results, but currently won't work if there are at least 15 search results.

I'm using a bluetooth keyboard. If on the first line of a document I cursor-key upwards, the cursor does not move (naturally) and the displayed line number stays as one, as expected. However, it appears to count however many lines before the start I up-arrow to, since if I di it 7 times, I then need to press 'down' 7    times before the cursor starts moving again!

Version 4.3

This will be fixed in the next update
