Version: 2.1.12

First off, thanks for developing this app, it's the first well-thought out text editing app for Windows 8 and has been a positive experience so far, as someone coming from Notepad++.

Two apparent bugs:

1. Unable to scroll with word wrap activated. This seems to apply both to clicking and dragging the scroll bar and to the multitouch press and drag your finger interface. This issue goes away when word wrap is deactivated.

2. Unable to ctrl+tab between open documents. With two documents open, holding down ctrl and hitting tab once doesn't activate the other document; holding down ctrl and hitting tab twice activates the other document but it then immediately reverts to the first document.

And two suggestions/requests:

1. Allow interactive multitouch (pinch and zoom style) resizing of font

2. Add support for *.tex files!

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for writing.

1) We've seen some reviews on the Store saying that touch scrolling didn't work but we could never repro it on our end.  It turns out to be as you said, where it only occurred if word wrap was enabled.  We were able to track down the problem and fixed it for the next version.

2) For some reason, two key down events for Ctrl+Tab are being passed into our handler now each time Ctrl+Tab is pressed.  So the selected document ends up cycling two positions.  It almost seems like a bug in WinRT since we only attach to the handler a single time, this code hasn't changed in a long time, and it worked fine in the past.  The good news is that we were able to work around it by marking the event as handled.  The fix will be in the next version.

I'll mark down the suggestions.
