Please fix one annoying bug

The whole editor is great and support sFTP which is exactly what I want, but there is one annoying bug: When I'm using an external keyboard with an input method (Like Chinese Input Method) with floating word-selecting box, the box's position is just not correct. It sticks to top of the view. I'm having the same problem with GoCoEdit too. Please fix it or I have to abandon this app.

First google drive markdown support

The product has lots of useful functionalities especially markdown support but the best use of it for me is its integration with cloud survives (Dropbox, gdrive, etc). I can finally write in markdown system using my iPhone. One ask is to please add Python syntax support to editor mode

Plays well with Google Drive!

The first markdown editor app I’ve found that actually plays very well with Google Drive natively in the app. Great design, easy to use. Such a life-saver!
