I have tried over 10 text/note apps. I open text files and copy/paste frequently, so that weeded out most apps that I tried. There is an option for black background, which is also crucial. Text selection happens where the cursor is placed, not where you hold to open the menu to select. I need this to be able to open files in my SD card in the future. Best text editor.

I hunted high and low for a simple Android app that could open, edit & save text files so that they could still be read in Notepad on Windows. It took some fiddling to find the right settings for that when saving (a better save dialogue to help with that would be great, as most people would prefer that setting). Now Jota has developed a glitch so that it's opening all text files in "Content Provider" so that the files can't be edited! How do disable this so I can exit files as I did before?

I used to love this app but when I upgraded my phone it doesn't work anymore on the newer Android. I had a ZTE zMAX pro running 6.0.1 and this app works great. And I upgraded my phone to a Moto g play 2021 running 10 and the app is pretty much unusable now. The cursor and touch editing in select cut and paste functions is all messed up. When you try to drag the selection it just goes all over the place and not where your trying to drag it.
