What’s New

Version 9.3

• Commenting Code
- New keyboard shortcuts "Toggle Comment" (Cmd-/) and "Toggle Block Comment" (Cmd-Option-/).
- You can also select text and choose "Comment" or "Remove Comment" from the editing menu.

• Improved Text Editing
- New setting "Close Brackets and Quotes": Automatically inserts a matching closing character when typing an opening bracket or quote. This works for the following character pairs: "", '', (), [], {}.
- New setting "Indent Based on Syntax": Automatically indent code when typing, based on its syntax. For example, increases the indentation when pressing Return after an opening curly brace ("{") in C or an opening tag in HTML and decreases indentation after a closing curly brace ("}") or a closing tag.
- New "Line Height" setting that you can use to adjust the spacing between lines (defaults to 110%).
- New setting "Gutter" -> "Indicate Selection": The currently selected lines can be indicated in the gutter if line numbers are enabled.

• Dark Mode Improvements
- You can now select a separate code editor theme and keyboard appearance for Dark Mode.
- Markdown preview now uses a dark color scheme in Dark Mode.


Fixed:
- When a folder in iCloud was open and the file transfer screen was invoked, it didn't display the correct folder.
- The "New File" keyboard shortcut now also works if a settings screen is currently shown.
- Changed the default keyboard shortcut for Find to Cmd-F (instead Cmd-Option-F).
- Improved text input when entering complex scripts like Malayalam.
- Text selection: When double-tapping text, the editing menu did not come up.
- Arrow keys on third party keyboards did not update the selection.
- Fixed a problem with the scroll bars of the code editor.
- Fixed problems when selecting all lines in a file with thousands of lines.

The Big T application FANTASTIC

LOVE IT! I am an old mainframe guy, and most of my career I used Xedit. I want to say Kedit was
For DOS or Command Line but no GUI. So basically PC based, maybe AIX or Red Hat. Just not sure. My point is Xedit and Kedit were soraly missed. GUI is OK but the dev. For Windows, AIX, or day Redhat stuck to what they knew. Sad.

Your T-Rex editor name (I like that better than Textastic name. The other does not sing). I was using NOTES+++ for a while, rich with function, but not intuitive. It would take an investment on time to fully understand. Plus, I really never trusted it. Nothing is Free. How to the get $$.

T-isfortext or T-Rex are better names. To the point. I LIKE IT! It’s simple, intuitive, lite-weight, offers numerous function. It’s the closest to a green screen than you can get.

The other editor I have is TextEdit and it looks to be very nice. But there is a learning curve and I just cannot spare the time right now. I will sit down with it sooner or later.

Wish list. If you could purchase Kedit, not sure it’s avail, and integrate if making it available again would be great.

2 points.
(1) you have a really good product with T-Rex (Textastic) do whatever you can to keep quality HIGH.

(2) Please Stay far away from subscription base charge back. Do not! Stay away! If you need funds to maintain or grow application, get with me and I’ll propose a model that will do just that.

I do all my web development in this app

Yes, I have a Macbook Pro with all the latest web dev tools. But I always have my iPad with me, and I end up doing all my development with Textastic. It has its own local file structure so you can build the server folder and file structure locally and develop with relative links. You can store all the resources (graphics, images, scripts, stylesheets, etc.) in their proper places so the entire site can be uploaded as it exists on the device. My typical workflow starts with Graphic for graphic and image resources, Pixelmator to edit images to size, and Textastic for html, css, and Javascript as needed. iCloud files are synced automatically so I can pick up on any device, and upload to the web host directly from the iCloud directories. This is one of the essential apps that make the iPad so incredibly useful.

the best text edit on iPhone for sure!

No words, I use this program over years, it’s simply the best. Easy to access FTP with the phone, transfer files, edit files, just wipe out for example an error on your website immediately on the go. Because I use it over years, I can say the programer is an amazing guy!! He didn’t bring a program to the App Store for a fast money, he’s passionate about it and loves it, there is a regular improvement and development since years! I read the change log from 8.0, and again saw it will be better now than ever before :)))
