Full-screen editing mode

Maury Hill 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 3
Would like a full screen editing mode which would be useful on the 6+. I would like all menu bars hidden top and bottom. Sort of what Safari does when browsing.

a lot of file extensions are not associated or having the option to open them with textastic app using Files/iCloud/OneDrive/etc..

Support for 1Password

StuFF mc 3 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 1

When I add a new FTP I'd like to be able to use 1Password.


Compile and Run

Cameron Mitchell 6 years ago in General 0

If you could add the ability to compile and run code that would be awesome. That is the only thing holding this app back. I'm sure Apple makes this difficult if not impossible so if it isn't possible then thats okay. Love the app!


Add markdown preview with custom css

Fabrice Moulin 6 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 years ago 1
Export markdown on pdf with sole personal css, And this soft Will perfect for me

Autocompletion/syntax highlighting for jQuery would be nice

Robert Crooks 6 years ago in General 0

The JavaScript support is already great, but help with the jQuery functions would be a big time-saver as well.


Universal app

György Mérei 7 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 4
Please make the app universal and not separate iPhone and iPad versions.

Add default markdown stylsheet that works for email

Mike Ware 7 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 years ago 0
It would be great to have the ability to save a style sheet that the Markdown processor would use for rendering without having to link it. If this could also be used when rendering for the "Send as Message" function it would be fantastic. So many times I need to send a formatted email from iOS. I can do this with TexTastic, but the default styles just don't work for me


AirPlay Support

j 5 years ago in General 0
It would be great to see some sort of enhanced AirPlay mirroring support for Textastic iOS. Some apps have the ability to change what you see on the iOS device screen when mirroring is turned on. This would allow Textastic to take advantage of the larger (TV) screen's real estate while using the iOS device for controls/keyboard only. Maybe this could allow for multiple editing panels (ie HTML and CSS side-by-side)?
