Support for downloading and viewing files beginning with a dot

afaninthehouse 5 months ago in iPhone updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 months ago 1

Textastic doesn't view files that begin with a dot.

Also if I download 2 files with the same name that both start with a dot, upon attemtping to view (or edit) the second file, it goes back to trying to edit the first file.

Can you please give me more details? How exactly are you trying to download the files?


Textastic should be able to handle files beginning with a dot like ".htaccess".


I just downloaded a file called ".profile" using an SSH connection and could open and edit the file without problems.

It would be great if you could send me a screen recording video illustrating the problem.


If you are using an FTP connection instead of SFTP, you need to enable "Show Hidden Files" in the connection's settings. See https://www.textasticapp.com/v10/manual/remote_servers/sftp_ftps_ftp.html#configure-an-ftp-unencrypted-connection
