If you change settings often (I often change tabs and word wrap), having to scroll back to the usually same setting is tiresome. Additionally, remembering the scrolled position in themes would also make it a lot faster to test them all.
Today's post is just a funny one. I'll be releasing different types of themes for the community. I'll update this post regularly to add new theme's every now and then. Feel free to suggest themes!
How to add themes? Go to your Textastic app, open the local files > create a new folder name the folder #Textastic (make sure it's exactly named like that else it won't work!) add a file into the folder named (you may choose the name as long as the file extension is ends with) .tmTheme
Theme's are below:
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.
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.
The extra row of keys get in the way of the better keyboard in textfinity which has all the same keys plus much more and has fast and precise positioning of the text cursor. Can you add the option to disable the extra keys above the keyboard on iOS like we can on iPad.
I'd love to have a way to mark parts of the code for future reference, like highlighting words in an ebook reader. This would be useful when looking for bugs/parts of the code where there's room for improvement, to later fix the code on a PC.
I'm using Textastic to view and modify text files stored on a cloud drive (pCloud), which is generally working well. However, if I have a file open in Textastic and modify it from another computer, one of the following happens:
- In some cases, the open tab just closes
- In other cases, the file remains open, but doesn't refresh with the modified version of the file
I can work around this by re-opening the closed tab, or by closing and re-opening the Textastic app.
I'd prefer if the tab didn't close, but a message appeared stating the file has changed, and asking if I want to reload it. Alternatively, just a menu option to reload the current file would be a reasonable solution.
