I love write.as, and I love writing in it on my ipad. The problem is that once I reach the bottom of the page, not only do I have to strain my neck, but I constantly fight the ipad “island” widget that covers up the last line of my article. It woud be great to have a typewriter style mode that always centers the currently written line (imagine the textarea being a sheet of paper that you can roll up and down).
Can I add in, that I ditto this! There is another service of similar nature made by Matt (Baer) (who makes W.a) regarding taking jots (which I won’t link to cause I don’t think it’s a “public thing), but I was thinking of exactly this for that service the other day: a cursor positioned sort of “to-the-left, but upper-center screen” where the cursor continually re"sets”/re"starts" at it’s initial line position, and the text just continually scrolls up. The lower screen remains blank (“to be written”) the upper screen fills with written text.
This may be difficult/impossible in all manner of HTML/CSS/JS, or just for those who are mere mortals (most people), but in regards to this particular topic, having some sort of “auto space” (or an ever-present blank space) towards the bottom of the
textarea (to solve the iPad problem, for example) could prove beneficial
have a good one
This typewriter mode should be default across the internet.
Great suggestion. For those that are agreeing, make sure you click the Vote button in the upper left to actually increment up the count for the feature request ranking.
