Menlo included in iOS now

Steven Lu 3 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 1
I am a big fan of this font on OS X and since iOS includes it now, it should be just as easy to add to Textastic as Courier.

Under "text expander" toggle in settings there is a localization bug. "Third-party app in Russian is "стороннее приложение", not "третья часть приложения"

Support for Exporting .ZIP files in other Apps via "Open in..."

Arete Nehemiah 5 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago 1

I often make backups by zipping up all of my files. I would then like to open that file in some other program, e.g., GoodReader.

Include a syntax dictionary divided into language categories.

Austin Koziol 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 1
That way people trying to learn a language can easily look through the in app dictionary to find forgotten syntaxes.

Stefan Theurer 2 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 years ago 1

I have a *.pm-File with the line


$chScale = (1 << TSL2561_LUX_CHSCALE);


Textastic prints everything green below the bit-operator <<

AirDrop for Files, Folders, Zip archives (Through the file manager side).

Vertigo Bird 2 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 years ago 1

I've made a connection to the Mac via Sftp, and that works well. That said, I think AirDrop is a faster method and moving files, folders, and zip archives to the Mac would be a good candidate for its use. Texttastic already is a destination (Open in …) when receiving AirDrop.

Cannot distinguish long file/directory names

Herman Hilberink 3 years ago in General • updated 3 years ago 2
As in renaming or moving files, make it possible to always view naming in auto fit mode instead of the length being truncated
