iOS text editor is now available!

We are happy to announce that iOS now has a text editor! You can access this feature on any text file from the toolbar in the lower left corner.

Re: iOS text editor is now available!

What file formats other than .TXT are supported? Ideally, it should be able to edit any file type. I have a lot of text files that use different extensions (log files, raw code/scripts, etc.) that are just plain text.

Thanks for the txt editor. But the speed scroll is gone after txt editor introduced. Some of my txt files have over 50 pages, So I can't work with Dropbox without speed scroll. Thanks!

It only supports .txt at the moment. Which other text files were you looking to edit? I can send the feedback to the team

Hi Ernst,

Can you send us examples on when it doesn't work? I'll reach out offline.

Aha!  So that's what changed.  Yeah, this is a major problem for me.  I view (don't care so much about edit) some large text files, on a daily basis.

I am experiencing the same issue as Ernst: I do not see the text editor feature when viewing my .txt file

I can only edit (on my phone) .txt files that I create on my phone, not ones created on my Mac.

Hi @Jon T.7@Maces

 

Thanks for flagging this. We've identified and were able to reproduce this and I shared your feedback with our engineers. I'll let you know as soon as we have news on it.

 

Thanks!
