SD card support?

Post by hpham » Mon Dec 29, 2014 1:19 pm

When I attempt to open a spreadsheet from an SD card, I receive an error that the file is in use and if I would like to open the file read only. If I try to open the same file copied to the internal memory, it opens fine. So it appears that Planmaker does not yet support SD cards? If so, will this feature eventually be added? I'm using the trial version on a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.
Thanks.

Well, it seems that you use Android 4.4. SD card support is limited with that version:

Yes, I am on 4.4. Hopefully, Samsung will provide an update to Lollipop soon. Will that correct the issue? Thanks.

TextMaker will not save to physical external SD card even with Android 5.0. It says the drive is full [or busy.] Other office suites already support saving to external SD card in Android 5.0. Can you tell me when this will be fixed? Thank you very much!

I can confirm that reading and writing to and from external SD card works now.

Thanks.

I would in interested in knowing how to access an external SD card from Textmaker HD. I'm not offered that choice, only Device Memory (and a bunch of cloud stuff that I won't use).
