iOS underline for misspelled words with Auto-correction

Miguel Hernández 5 years ago in General updated by Kelly “STrRedWolf” Price 2 years ago 1

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.

Possible to add fonts with anyfont?

Derek 7 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 years ago 8 2 duplicates

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?

Open files directly over sftp with a live sftp browser. No syncing entire dirs!

Reilly Beacom 10 years ago in General 0
I don't care if a temp file is copied to my ipad as long as that is invisible to me. I just want to open a single file and see its *remote* path and save it to its remote path.

Support for Multicursor (as seen in Sublime, Atom, VSCode)

ccssmnn 5 years ago in General updated by Nitin 4 years ago 2

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.

Support for the new Files app (native integration)

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.

Code Minimap (syntax highlighting would be a bonus)

BenjaminDSmithy 7 years ago in General 0

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 :)

Compile and Run

Cameron Mitchell 10 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!

Web preview fullscreen mode.

Smet_IOS 13 years ago in General updated by Jarrod Oberto 12 years ago 1
I have found the web preview in Textastic to be perfect. I have discovered it will even play local mp4 files so I can create video portfolio websites that will play local HD files through HTML5 so I don't have to worry about an internet connection. The only thing that would make this even more perfect is having a full screen mode with the web preview. Then it would truly make a perfect presentation mode that will be able to play anywhere regardless of signal. Perhaps a 5 finger tap could exit fullscreen mode.
