Hi There


I LOVE your Textastic apps for iOS and Mac.


However there is one feature I would love for you to add.


Have you ever used Notational Velocity? If not, I please urge you to use it. It has an excellent search system.


Now, I don't think you need to desperately add the ability to create documents from the search box (although that would be nice)… But the ability to please search across multiple documents at once would be a game changer. I could drop NV and use Textastic instead exclusively which has waaayyy better Markdown support than NV so would be AMAZING! Plus, it would make editing code much easier and if really a required feature for that.


So, please, could you add multi document search?

- A new text box at the top of the sidebar

- Typing text places a filter on the sidebar so it only shows files which contain that text string

- Delete all the text to show all the files again

- When you click on a document after performing a search and filter, if the filter is still active, the text in the document is highlighted to easily see


This would make coding, markdown notes, everything, so much more amazing.

Please, please, please can you do this?

Many thanks


Here's a copy of my email response:


I plan to add regular expression search as well as "Find in Files" in a future update.

Thanks for your detailed description of how you'd like to see multi document search implemented!
