Button to navigate in row


tertius83 2019-07-19 13:09


I am new to this platform, just wrote some few small programs. I use my iPhone and usually code on my way to work, makes a lot of fun! But there is one thing which would help me a lot: a button to navigate right and a button to navigate left in a row. It is easy to click in a row, but very hard to click at a certain position in a row.

Best regards, Sven

The NX for IOS uses native IOS functioning,... once you have tapped a sentence and see the little line inside the sentence, HOLD your finger on the sentence until you see a little circle which shows a close up of the little line in the sentence... at this point, slowly glide your finger left and right until the line is where you want to start editing the sentence.... at that point release your finger and continue editing the sentence :)

BTW, welcome to NX :)

I have programmed NX on my iPhone, iPad mini, my big iPad, and on my windows tablet... and of course it’s easiest to use the big iPad :)

But I’ve used my iPhone too, you just have to be a little more careful.. but it is possible with a little practice :)

BTW, feel free to post one of your programs, no matter how small ... if it isn’t done, you can still post what you have and then add updates to it.. check out my list, you’ll find about half of my stuff is either not finished or just a small little thing...

I like looking at even small little things... i enjoy looking at other people’s ideas, art, or programming approach ... I am always inspired by others :)

I know, left/right buttons would help, but I’m not sure if they fit on screen still. I will try.

I am on my iPhone right now, and one thing you could do that gives a little better ability is to hold the phone vertically (not the normal way) and the method I mentioned works abit better :)

@TIMO, as I am on my iPhone in NX the bar above the keyboard shows...


With no extra room...

However a pop up shows different options like COPY INDENT... etc... not sure if you could add something that simply moves the cursor or if it would even be convenient to use or not...
