I mainly use this to read/edit fanfiction stories saved as .txt files. I like that I can choose my own font and change the font size and the color theme. Search/replace function is nicely versatile also, with the case sensitive and regular expressions options and ability to search for and replace line breaks.

My main complaint is the way word wrap is handled. It wraps after spaces but also after a period, comma, or hyphen, leaving many an orphaned " at the end of dialogue. :( Double hyphens '--' get split, as well as '...' and there is no way to easily tell if there is a space after the period, comma, or hyphen, before the wrap.

An option to 'only wrap after spaces' would be great. A way to show whitespaces and end-of-line characters would also be quite useful. Would either/both of these be possible to add in future updates?

Thanks!

one of the best text editor the only thing I feel is missing is something like a grep (companion app of jota+) which let you search inside text content in file manager folder and perform bulk search /replace.

This is a great editor.

Is there any setting / workaround to change so that this can be displayed correctly?
The font setting is monospace in all 3 editors.
The ">" (larger than) symbol is a double space character.

I like the app, using the Pro version. Thanks.
I have two feature requests: Auto change theme by system default option.
Secondly: when one tries to save a new txt file, it's named 'untitled' but if there was an option to name it the first line of the file, it would be perfect.
Thanks again and in advance!

Hello. Can you add a Text to Speech option? I use this app to read and edit texts in .txt and I would like to be able to use the Android Text to Speech option.

Is it possible to NOT have tabs of open files and work with one file? In a tablet the interface always shows tabs.

I would like the app to reload the file or, notify if an opened file was changed. For example, if I had a file opened in app's editor from cloud (e.g. dropbox) and if that file was changed earlier via. another device then app needs to reload file or, inform that "File was changed" so that it doesn't get the recent changes overwritten.

For me, it does that.

I see. Yes, I tested it as well. It does it for files which are saved locally which are changed only on your phone.

In my case, I load file from cloud (e.g. dropbox) which is shared by Android phone and another computer device.

This is my favorite editor but I am very upset by some strange decisions, likes this...
1. The reaction with a long tap on the text is non-standard, inconvenient and it significantly slows down the work. (the program shows a menu of options, why?) The default behavior in android would be the best solution.

can i disable this behavior?


the standard behavior is when the word is selected with a long tap and then just copy or select how much to select and that's it.
In Qickedit, we will first need to see the menu that appears after the tap, then select the item in the menu, then again select the text that we need and that's it. As a result, we observe two extra actions (at least).

And here I see contradictions with the name of the editor.

It would also be very nice to add a search icon to the toolbar, now for this you need to do a lot of unnecessary actions.

Thank's

A better option than long-press on a word is to double-tap it which selects the word and displays the copy/cut/paste/select all options.
That's far quicker and no redundant actions.

Hi! This is a great app. I'm a happy user of the pro version. It's great to support my workflow when on the go, with no troubles at all.

I have seen that there's been a discussion on markdown support improvements. While some support for styling would be enjoyable, I think that being able to send the document preview to the standard Android print service would be an initial step at having the possibility, e.g., to export to PDF.

Any styling support that might come later could improve the process, but this minimal exporting support would be great for the many of us that work on the go and might have to share writing with people not accustomed to markdown.

Thanks again for the great work!

    Status Update

    I spent a lot of time to develop a new material designed music player in recent months, which is why QuickEdit has not been updated.
    Now this music player is finished, here is the link to it in xda-developers: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-pulsar-music-player-t3197336
    It is named Pulsar Music Player. Please download and have a try!

    So I have more time to maintain QuickEdit now. There are lots of features in plan, and also some bugs. They will be released and fixed in future releases soon.:) Thanks.
