What's New

Version 3.3

New:
• By default, Textastic now always restores files and windows when re-opening the app. This can be disabled in the new advanced preferences tab.
• Improved indentation when the cursor is between HTML or XML tags and you press return.
• The sidebar can now follow symbolic links. Please note that the symbolic link target must be within a folder added to the sidebar due to sandboxing restrictions.

Fixed:
• Fixed performance issues with wide color monitors on macOS Sierra.
• Deleting a very large number of lines from large files could result in a crash.
• The line and column status bar items now use a system font with monospaced digit glyphs. This prevents the status bar from jiggling when you type.
• Sometimes folders in the sidebar were not restored properly when re-opening the app.
• When changing to another tab before duplicating a file was finished, the wrong file was renamed.
• Pasting text with the last line only consisting of whitespace sometimes did not properly update the internal text selection state. This could result in a crash on the next key press.
• A file extension specified in a template was not honoured when saving the new file created by template. For example, if the template specified a ".cc" file extension, ".cp" was used instead.
• Loading a custom syntax definition from the #Textastic folder could result in a crash if the language grammar was not a valid property list dictionary.
• Other minor fixes

Does not break your Default App Extension settings (Updated)

DaveOnTheRoad

As others have noted, Textastic appears to override your macOS default app settings for some files, i.e., GetInfo and Always Open With options don’t seem to work. On macOS this occurs when the file is stored in the Textastic iCloud folder and is a macOS/iCloud instituted behavior, not something done by Textastic. Since this is not a Textastic issue and the app is otherwise excellent - no reason not to give this app five stars. Thank you to the developer Alexander for his support in very quickly identifying the concern.
