Issues with Drive
Hi There, great App! However, when I try to work with existing TeX documents in my Drive, I am unable to import these documents. I cannot create new documents using this app either. Whenever I try to create a document, it will say something like “document manager error 1 unable to import document”.
Downloaded because it was free. Couldn’t compile documents that TexStudio or Overleaf could, I think the problem was related to not recognizing bibliographies or figures. Not enough support for me to really figure it out. If I would be cautious of giving a low rating because maybe it was user error, there also was a huge delay between typing and response. Like a second lag per character. Unusable at that point. Maybe others had better experiences, but this is a new iPad so I can’t explain the lag except for a poorly performing app. I’d recommend you at least try it yourself to see if it works better for you, but it’s also 70MB. Plus a star for great Dropbox integration though.
More Cumbersome than It’s Worth
Within minutes of using this “Pro” application, the app – after either error checking or previewing – will unexpectedly revert back to a previous “save point”, washing away any work meticulously typed out for the past 5-10 minutes. This bug is aggravating especially when working at a fast pace. Alongside the painfully slow time to error check or load a preview, it made this app more cumbersome than it’s worth. I would recommend not investing any time in this app for as long as this bug (and the overall slow nature of the app) is fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
