Custom template not showing up in template list

Jake Rayson 2 years ago in iPhone • updated 2 years ago 3

I followed the instructions for creating a custom template on Textastic 6.4.1 on an iPhone 6 10.3.3. It's a Markdown template for my static site generator, using Front Matter, in a file called fm.json. It is saved in a folder in Local Files called #Textastic/Templates


However, after restarting Textastic, the template isn't appearing in the list :(


Any ideas why? Many thanks, Jake

Unable to open Working Copy folders in Textastic

Ara Adkins 2 years ago in iPhone • updated by EFlynn 10 months ago 16

The combination of the latest Textastic version (6.4, iOS) and the latest update to Working Copy (3.1.0) it is now impossible to pick folders for inclusion at the top level on iPhone. While it is possible to drag and drop on the iPad, there is no equivalent solution for iPhone.


It's a big workflow damper for making broader changes across repos as the picker in Files can be quite slow in larger repositories (not that this is your issue).

Google Drive file uploading

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

Mostly I have only been programming in C++ and just bought Textastic to look over and edit my code. Only problem is that I cannot access .cpp files. Uploading them into a folder on Google drive is no problem, but accessing them via the app isn't working. I converted some files to .txt and they would work. Let me know if there is a solution.

Cursor Has Delay When Pressing Around

foreyez 2 years ago in iPhone • updated 2 years ago 0

I've noticed that when I press around a document the cursor does not immediately go to its spot. There's about a 200ms delay.

1. Click somewhere on your document, the keyboard will be shown.

2. Now just press around in different areas of the document, you'll see there's a 200ms delay or so from the time that you press to the time that the cursor goes to that position.


This doesn't happen in iOS 'Notes' for example, where the cursor moves immediately as you press.
