Text zoom with automatic text reflow

victordomingos 2 years ago in iPhone • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 years ago 1

When zooming text with the pinching gesture with two fingers, it should automatically adjust text position to match the screen edges and automatically reflow text to fit them. This is specially important on iPhone, as the screen space is very limited. It could be an option in the settings, to allow both ways. 

The desired behaviour can be found, for instance, in an app named Permanote (formerly Nebulous Notes). You pinch the screen and the text adjusts its size and fits the screen, fowing in realtime.

x-callback-url support for downloading/uploading (already mapped) files

Sha1 5 years ago in iPhone • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago 0
Is it possible to add x-callback-url support for downloading and uploading files that were already mapped to a remote? An example workflow would be: open textastic using openurl and paste the clipboard into the file (this functionality already exists) and when done upload the file to the remote. Similar workflow for downloading - open textastic and automatically download the latest version from the remote...


Support SwipeSelection

Steven Lu 4 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.

Textastic forgets what line I was viewing in a file

joncom 2 weeks ago in iPhone • updated 3 days ago 2

This is mainly an annoyance in large files (which I deal with frequently).

After not using the app for a while, and returning to it, it forgets what line I was viewing (usually in the high 1000's), and instead it reverts to viewing line 1.

It basically happens on a daily basis, and so I'm left flicking my phone 20 times to scroll back to the bottom of my file. :(
