The growing adoption of Textastic brings new opportunities for applications in general writing.
The auto-correction option in Textastic allows the user to use the iOS spelling suggestions above the embedded keyboard, but greater functionality can be leveraged from the iOS spelling checker.
The idea: include the red underlined mark from the iOS spelling checker into the text editor when the auto-correct option is activated (or with an additional setting).
The benefit: Textastic would significantly enhance the functionality for users of plain text, latex files, taskpaper files, among others.
I am wondering whether it would be possible to use the app Anyfont to add custom fonts on iOS that Textastic could use. According to the Anyfont app description: "With AnyFont you can install additional fonts on your device which can then be used by other apps which make use of the device's font book."
Does Textastic use the device's font book?
I would love to see Multicursor functionality similar to the one available in Sublime, Atom or VSCode. They improve productivity a lot and save a lot of double/triple typing or search and replace processes.
The new Files app in iOS is the all-in-one place for file managers and it’d make it really easy to transfer files.
I would love to see a code minimap with syntax highlighting support make its way to Textastic especially for use on my iPad Pro 12.9inch 2nd-gen.
This will bring your app one step closer to desktop counterparts (Atom, Sublime, Visual Studio Code, etc.) and I’m sure will make a lot of power users who wish to stay mobile very happy :)
