I cannot open my file, even though I have logged in as a member to Anyfile Notepad.

I tried to save on google drive, but nothing happens.

The message received when I tried to open the file is that it is an encoding fault.

What am I supposed to do??????

+Julien Semaan Would an update to the styling of this app be considered a major feature? I have experience styling pages with Material Design that is up to spec and I'm interested in restyling some of your elements. Keeping your scheme of course. Unless your satisfied with your styling. There is a link to my developing portfolio included.

Hi +Zipolater, thanks for the offer but I'm happy with the app style for now. Sure it won't win any design award, but it does a fair job.

Thanks anyway

I realize this is an old post, but it's a text editor that's useful for coding. If you're familiar with Vim or Emacs, there are modes to emulate those editors' commands/styles, too. Using vim-style editing with Google Drive integration in a web browser is what I like about it and makes it pretty powerful.

Minor bug: in vim mode when you use p to paste, there is an extra line added after the just-pasted text.

Line 1 (use yy and p to paste a copy of line 1)
Line 2

Not sure that would be a great idea as this could break the type and could be un-desired. If you create a file using the app, the type discovery is done but not when saving an existing file.

I tried to open and scroll a bit an .htm file present in my dropbox account. Even if it is not correctly displayed in anyfile notepad, it autosaves the file ruining it. I had to restore the original file through the dropbox web panel.

Add a feature: a switch to completely unable/disable this autosave function.

Read the FAQ and you'll get your answer. Much less effort than joining the community and posting a message.

Hey +Martin Ligabue,

Thanks for the report, I was able to find the issue and have just pushed a new version that fixes this.

If you still have issues, make sure you restart the web app (File->Restart app)

Cheers !

Is there a way we can disable automatically saving on document open? It's problematic if you're trying to see when a file was last truly modified. Or maybe give us an option to disable autosave altogether in the preferences.

Great app!

Any reason why I'm being prompted to authorize Anyfile Notepad every time I open a file with it?

I've removed it from my Drive apps and re-added it, re-authorized etc. but still every file I open it requests authorization.

Cut, copy, and paste shortcuts are not working for me in the app. It is working fine in other pages. I'm using a chromebook if that matters.

p.s. Just started writing html and I'm using this app to practice on projects. I love it!
