Where’s the cursor?

Absolutely love it, as it holds up its own to any word processing programs that are out there for iOS: Scrivener, Word, (but, what doesn’t beat out word?),WPS, (and which is no longer existent for iOS 13), Google docs (mediocre at best),etc. The only problem so far, is that it is a bit laggy (as I’m finishing editing a 750 page manuscript for publication) but that’s to be expected on such a long document. Also, WHERE IS THE CURSOR! it is invisible, I can’t see it at all. Am I blind?! Please help my eyes to see it!! Another thing is that it capitalizes the first letter in front of which the invisible cursor is placed ?? Other than that, and a few bugs with problems importing/exporting to Dropbox, this program is a warm brown Rolls Royce. And all the exporting features, RTF?., are you freaking kidding me! Awesome! I love it so far, but, let’s get on the ball of the invisible cursor and of speeding things up under the hood.

Love it, despite glitches

This is the best writing app out there for the iPad. Though far from the inclusive editing capacity of Windows Word, it is still as good as it gets for the iPad, with many great features. I give it a four star and half stars because it often becomes slow as you type, and you have to wait for it to catch up to catch up, and ditto with the editing. There are other quirks, like I can only use an older document to start a new document, even if I am up to date with IOS lasted version, and have the most recent version of Textilus. If I begin a new document, it remains blank when I try to write. Then there is the picture addition problem. After I’ve used a document for awhile, four times or so, I have to hunt back in my files for one I’ve used less, because the pictures stop printing out. Fortunately I have been using it for several years, and have lots of old documents to reuse. Their Tech support has never been able to solve these for me. I use it daily to write out my spiritual journal entries. Using the computer is constricting, noisy and not conducive to a quiet writing solitary space. I use also use it for writing out teachings to share, recipes, and other general information. It is invaluable to me, and I’ve found nothing else available out there has come close. Between textilus and the iPad, I am rarely on the computer anymore.

Love this app!

I’ve tried many different text processing apps and this is the best one I’ve found. One feature is how well it handles copying and pasting the text from a web page into a new or existing document - it is simple, easy, and pastes the text without inserting line breaks or concatenating all of the text into one giant jumble that requires lots of editing. It also handles inserting and resizing jpg images. And it has many more features and functions than most other similar apps. Only thing that I think could be improved is the user interface navigation and menu structure - some of the apps features are a bit tricky to find until you become familiar using the app.
