I want to use Google drive as a local source but it’s unavailable. Is there a way round this ?

Not all file providers support being added as external folders to Textastic.

Currently, this works with folders in "On my iPad/iPhone", iCloud Drive, Working Copy (Git client), and Secure ShellFish (SFTP client).

This is a feature Google would have to add to their Google Drive app.

You can find more information about external folders in the manual at:


As an alternative you can use Textastic’s built-in Google Drive client to download whole folder hierarchies.
