File Management

Where is the edited file saved?

The edited file is basically saved in the area of this app in "External Storage". (App-specific storage)
Even in the case of a terminal that cannot use an SD card, the OS will prepare "External Storage" as "Virtual External Storage".
In the app, the path display is "/", but it is the path of the "App-specific storage" and is different from the root directory of the system.

The path when viewed with the OS's "Files" app is as follows.


Wrix Free is:

Although we considered using "Internal Storage", we decided that even users could not easily manage files and decided not to use them.

Other app files need to be moved to the "External Storage" application area. This is the basic specification from Android 10.

How can I edit another app's file?

The method of editing the file of another app is as follows.

  • You can open the file list from the "File" menu and change the location to open the file. And you can save it directly.
  • Using the "Open from Storage" function in the "File" menu, you can open and save files of other apps on the file list screen of the "File" app.
    (Note: If you close the app or OS, the pass will expire and you will not be able to save it.)
  • Can be open a file by sending it from the "Files" app etc. with the "Share" function. It cannot be saved directly.
  • Use the "Import" function in the "File" menu to copy the file from the "File" app to the management area of this app and edit it.

About Backup.

Data such as file should be in the way back up to a location other than the terminal.
You have gotten consent at the start of this application use, but do not do compensation for any damages.
Please like to use at your own risk.
*The file of this app is under "/Android/data/com.skyarts.wrix/files/" in the App-specific storage.


Reverting when you edit the binary file may not be performed correctly.

It does not assume that dealing with originally binary file. Please use it for text editing.

Limits for the length of the line.

The length of one line does not have particularly over the limit, but we assume about 1024 characters.
Of course, it can also be used in more length, but for one line is to consume a long and large amount of memory, it is not recommended.
Please like and a new line in a reasonable length.

How to edit the files on the cloud.

To edit the files on the cloud, application in the terminal must be put the files in the area to manage.
To put the file in a region where the application is to manage the following ways.

  • You can open the file list from the "File" menu and change the location to open the file. And you can save it directly.
  • Using the "Open from Storage" function in the "File" menu, you can open and save files of other apps on the file list screen of the "File" app.
    (Note: If you close the app or OS, the pass will expire and you will not be able to save it.)
  • To send the file using the "Share" function of the official app of the cloud service.
  • Import files from the cloud storage app via the "File" app using the "Import" function in the "File" menu.

Note: Upon receiving the files from other apps will receive the "inbox" folder.
File of this "inbox" folder, because the writing is prohibited, if to be saved after editing must be saved to another location.

The edited file to save on the cloud in one of the following ways.

  • Open the File list using "Save" from the "File" menu, change the location and save the file to the specified location.
  • Save the file to the specified location via the "Files" app using "Save As to Storage" in the "File" menu.

About Character code.

The default character encoding is "UTF-8".
At the time of reading of the file will be able to use a different character code.
In addition, can be change to a different character code when save the file. However, because the Emoji, such as sometimes garbled, you must be careful.

About Line Break code

The default Line Break code is "LF".
Default Line Break code of when a new creating can be changed by "File I/O" setting screen.
In addition, it is also possible to change the Line Break code when you save.

When encode error occurs when file is opened using character code auto-detect function.

Character code automatic discrimination function may not be able to discriminate character code well in the following cases.

  1. Less number of characters
  2. Text contains special characters

We think whether to solve this problem by opening it with character code specification without using the auto-detect function.
There are the following methods to open a file with character code specification.

  1. Touch the tool bar at the bottom of the file selection screen, set the character code, and open the file.
  2. If the file is already open, select "Re-Open" from the "File" menu, set the character code and reopen the file.

When you open a file from the "Recently File" menu, the file is automatically opened using the character code specified earlier.

If you want to open the same file over and over, we recommend opening it from the "Recent Files" menu.

How do Print edited Text?

At this time there is no direct printing function in this application.
However, we think that it is possible to print indirectly by sending a file or text to another app.


About scroll by touching.

You may want without scrolling when you tried to scroll to selection mode, the selected area have been altered.
Please move your finger vertically you are touching is such a case.
It is possible that you are experiencing if you move your finger diagonally, judgment and touch scroll, so without OS.
And we think you can work around by scrolling with two fingers.

If the display of the line is disturbed.

It might be that the display of the line is disturbed.
Of course, we have to test, but because of internal processing has become quite complex, get rid of the problem to perfection It's quite difficult.

If such a problem appears, please look is allowed to redraw Change in portrait / landscape orientation of the terminal.
The redraw when you change the orientation of the terminal, you have to like re-counting of the internal at the same time.

If you find out how to reproduce, please teach you as much detail as possible such as the environment and how to reproduce.

About black Zoom pop-up.

Black Zoom pop-up is displayed when the After selecting text, you touch the place of another.
This black Zoom popup Zoom pop-up is a Drag-and-Drop for.

It is possible to move the selected text by releasing the finger from moving the cursor to the specified location.
If, and if you happen out the wrong Zoom pop-up of Drag-and-Drop for, you can cancel at any of the following methods.

  • Wait a little without moving a finger
  • Touch the editing area in another finger

In addition, it can be undone by using "Undo" function even after you Drag and Drop once.

Method of moving a file that was edited in other apps.

There is a thing to move the file that you edited in other apps in this application. (When you are migrating from other apps to this application, etc.)
An example of how to move files edited with other apps are listed below.

About storage timing of the cache.

In the text editing screen, for switching open documents at a high speed, and then save the various data internally as a cache.
Preservation of cache is done with the following timing.

  • Switch the document.
  • Display a different screen.
  • When switching apps and moved to the background.
  • Sleep the OS by pressing the power button on the terminal.

Since the cache is different from the storage of files, be sure to like do in preference to save the file.

About the long press command of the Tool bar button.

There is a button in the toolbar button that can use the fixed long press command.
Because there is no mark on the icon due to the size of the button, I think whether there is a difficult part to understand, but if you master it well you can call the function more easily than from the main menu.

The buttons that can use the fixed long press command are as follows.

  • Save button ... Show the File menu
  • Select-mode button ... Show the Select menu
  • Find button ... Show the Find menu

About gesture navigation on Android 10

In Android 10, you can use gesture navigation in addition to the traditional 3-button navigation.
We think that gesture navigation is set by default on Android 10 devices from the beginning.

In this gesture navigation, the swipe operation at the left and right edges of the screen is assigned to the "return" function, so the swipe operation at the left and right edges of the screen is inadvertently terminated I think things happen frequently.
And this app has a launcher that calls the outline function and the check mark function when swiping at the left and right edges of the screen, but this gesture navigation disturbs the launcher call. We recognize this problem, but since the OS will take away the swipe operation, it is difficult for the app to fully support it.

When calling the launcher by swiping the left and right edges of the screen, swipe up and down a little at the left and right edges to display the launcher a little. If you swipe horizontally after that, you can call the launcher without being disturbed by gesture navigation.

In version 1.0.1 and later, you can call the launcher only from the bottom of the text editing area up to 200dp (red mark area in the image below) without being disturbed by gesture navigation.
* Please note that the range in which the launcher can be called without disturbing the gesture navigation is different depending on whether the soft keyboard is displayed or not.
* Vertical 200dp is an OS limitation.

About drawing of Emoji

Emoji are using a different font. A font that is used to draw normal text to draw the pictogram.
Then, since the font size is different from the normal font for text, we have to fine-tune the position and size of the internal.
For this reason, it might be the size of the normal text and pictographs or slightly different, the position of the pictogram in slightly.

When it is determined monospace font is used in the normal font for text, we fine adjustment range and normal text to fit the pictogram rendered.
