Wrong charset when i re-import same file from my ftp

Xyl 3 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 1
Hello,

when i re-download the same php file from my ftp, the charset is UTF8 before and after crushing the previous file it become western ISO (there is no modification done in the content of the file between the 1st download and the 2nd, only the bug change the charset) .

Another thing I saw is the modification of the carriage return, my files are encoded in UTF8 w/out BOM and CRLF carriage return (I use notepad++ on my PC), and when I crush the same files they become western ISO and LF carriage return.

Well, that's all I think.

Thanks for reading

Auto suggest box no longer has focus on iOS 7 - Very annoying

Maurice Zoliker 4 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 4
When typing the beginning of a snippet, a box with multiple matching snippets names appears when typing on my Logitech BT keyboard.
On iPad Mini iOS 6.1.3, the first suggestion was selected automatically, allowing to navigate suggestions with up and down arrows. It was very useful!
On iPad Mini Retina iOS 7.0.3, the first suggestion is no longer selected, this is very annoying because you need to leave the keyboard and tap on screen.

Could you please revert to the previous behaviour? Or correct this change that came with the new iOS?

Thanks a lot!
Version 5.0
Answer
If you have a file open in Safari, you can tap on the address bar and replace http:// with textastic:// and hit return. Textastic will open and it will download the file over http.

When downloading a lot of files, app crashed due a inactivity.

Arturo Emilio Gonzalez 5 years ago in iPad 0

Should be fixed with background downloading. That would avoid the crashing when there are a lot of files. Mine crash when i try to download 1000 files from sftp. Also, i' love an option that when app is foreground stop the ipad from locking the device.

Update to the new TextExpander

Chrstfer Carrigan Brolly 4 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 3
TextExpander recently (Dec. 5, 2013) updated to a new version with a new and improved implementation of snippet sharing. The TextExpander SDK for iOS has been updated for this new version. Obviously its recent (four days) but it would be useful. 

Categorized as a bug, because the feature that is now semi-broken. 

Not sure if this idea board is being used still, last post is 9mo ago, but the app seems to still be in development, given (relatively) recent updates.

Custom syntax definition, compatible with Textmate, but without bundle

Dimitri K 5 years ago in iPad • updated 5 years ago 2

I'm using several my own themes and syntax definition files with Sublime editor (all files are compatible with Textmate). Was able to install theme files on Textastic, works well. But not my syntax definition files as they should be a part of bundle.. - any reason to not accept just a syntax file as it?.. - I'm not using Textmate, but need my syntax definitions to work comfortable on iPad too. Any possible fix here? Workaround?..


Thank you!


Rgds,
