  1. option for setting tabulation width

    Files that use standard tab width of 8 and smart indentation look ugly in Droidedit

    • Samba Access

      Accessing files via the SMB protocol would make a lot of thing easier in a tablet/pc environment...

          • Orgmode (from emacs) support.

            Currently, I use droidedit to open *.org files created by emacs and stored in dropbox. It would be handy to be able to click org files in dropbox and then have droidedit provide some syntax highlighting.

            orgmode support could be added incrementally. Mobileorg does not work very well, and I use droidedit instead for org files.

            • Zoom

              The ability to zoom in and out, like a Web browser, would be useful. The natural limit for zooming out would be the line length.

              • Autocomplete/Intellisene

                Autocomplete/intellisense for functions and properties would be really useful. Code hints for function parameters would make it even more awesome. Personally I do more html5/Javascript dev nowdays so to get intellisense working for there would be amazing!

                • find/replace all, in folder & subfolders or on server

                  Would be great to be able to do a "find/replace all" in project folder or on server, without having to open files in editor.

                    • Add user definable syntax highlighting.

                      Similar to bbedit/textwrangler codeless language modules to enable doing in any language - would make this great application even greater!

                      • interlinkink multible android devices to use them as multiple displays

                        it sounds crazy, yes. but since android apps via the google market are synched with every of your devices using the same account, there should be a high possibility developers have the same app on mltiple devices. now, let us think further: what if you could use a tablet for typing and another tablet for displaying the result in a browser? or editing one file on your cellphone and another one on a second device. you could litterally collaborate with other developers via the LAN or the internet. droidedit instances could be linked via a session id and a simple…

                        • Box and other WebDAV compatible services support

                          There are many services that can be accessed via WebDAV protocol: Box, SkyDrive, Yandex.Disk and many others. So, it would be nice to provide an ability to open and save files directly from these services.

                          • Add block operations to help us writers out :)

                            I'm thinking:
                            - all uppercase/lowercase/sentence case
                            - line/block up or down
                            - A-Z or Z-A of selection
                            etc
                            There's no school like the old skool!

                                • Enable variable width font

                                  Considering that there is very limited screen space on many android devices, using a variable width font could make better use of it. I know this can be a religious issue for many programmers, but adding it as an alternative can't hurt! Hopefully implementing this is really simple as well

                                    • Things arent working properly in landscape

                                      Using droidedit on my phone - HTC sensation - when editing a file > 1 page long in lanscape mode I cannot seem to move the cursor up the page. I end up just being able to see the bottom line of the file.

                                      I really want to use this brilliant app, but can't with this problem.
