Currently Textmate and Coda have default tab width setting s of 5.
Could you kindly add this width setting as an choice? Just so my code matches.

Thanks a lot

Select control moves back one character

fredramsey 10 years ago updated 10 years ago 2
Bug: when you hit the select control, the start of the selection moves back one character. It should start where you have the cursor.

CIFS or AFP support

Basic copy/sync with a CIFS or AFP mounted volume, much in the same way SFTP is implemented.

No error msg when automatic line break > 1000

Ramon Hackbarth 9 years ago 0
When inserting a value above 1000 in automatic line break input, it's not longer possible to close configure-dialog. An error message or highlight would be helpful, because even when closing splitview and tapping on "files"-button, the configure-dialog comes up.

PS: An possiblity to complety deactivate line break would be nice :)

Hi, does anyone think the new tabs implementation is horrible?

Rob 3 years ago updated 3 years ago 5

With the new tabs feature a new tab opens each time you open and edit a file or only open a file from the quick open menu. This effectively force you to close each file you open, like on a desktop, which to me seems pretty annoying. Previously each new file replaced the old one. Also I'm on a mini and would appreciate that screen space back.


I understand that someone would want tabs, that's ok. But shouldn't the normal way to implement this be to add a plus button, like in safari, so if you want an additional tab you create it as you wish, or not?


I tried to tell Alex about this, but he seems very contrary to reconsider his thinking (?) or even add an option to disable the feature. 


Also, since he added the forced tabs, should't there be at least keyboard shortcuts to switch between them or quickly close them?  >> A close all one? <<  The shortcuts lack a lot and you always have to use the hands.



What do you think?

All this situation seem very messy to me. I'm not trying to be critical or pretending that he does what I wish; I just don't understand why I'm not able to get this point to him or recieve a plausible expaination beside "I say so". It seems he shut down any negative feedback, yet many of his decisons don't really make sense. Wouldn't being able to adjust your assumptions make your app better? I feel he's very stubborn for no particular reason.



Here are some other issues I'd like others' opinion on:


-The lack of a trashcan: better not delete the wrong file, it's gone!


-Does anyone use the swipe gesture to move the caret (by one character each time!) or would prefer the traditional swipe right gesture to reveal the sidebar, at least on the iPad? 
With ios12 swiping on the spacebar will move the caret as you wish... both on phone and pad. (on never having this gesture Alex is "unmovable")


-Having a quick open menu like in Ulysses:
You can navigate it from the keybord and search through all the files, in all folders, AND their content.
Currently not even a shortcut to quickly open the "quick open" menu.


-What is the point of searching only file names in the current folder? it's quicker reading through them all.. and why the search bar have to be open all the time instead of being pulled down like any other app? It takes away a raw.


-No option to disable automatic indentation, why? driving me crazy..
-Anyone would like to use all the system fonts?
-Having a backup options of some sort? even just a zip archive to dropbox would do.. (I can do that manually..)


-Generally speaking, what is the point of replicating ios features? Tabs will be implemented with ios13 like are now on the mac, caret gestures are alredy implemented in the system keyboard etc.. isn't it a massive asted effort?


Just some ideas... Rob

custom site for WebDAV Server

Fexxel 10 years ago 0
It would be cool, if you could customize the view of the WebDAV Server, maybe you could enable a file upload through firefox.
Or it would be cool if you could set your default page (at http://0.0.0.0) so this is not only the WebDAV to view the other files. This way you could present your own website to any Mac or PC directly without being able to view your files and documents stored in textastic

Symbols button - no symbols found

Fexxel 9 years ago updated 9 years ago 0
If there are no symbols found either the button should be disabled (or not visible) or it should be bagded with a zero.

I would prefere the invisibility, because I don't like buttons that don't do anything.
