Apple seems to have made a big coup with the widgets that can be placed directly on the home screen in iOS 14. Everybody loves widgets because they provide important information and access to hidden functions without detours.
The new Textkraft Pocket Version 4.8 also launched the first widget last week. With the "Cheat sheet", any text excerpts can be brought to the home screen. We have put together an illustrated guide that explains all the options.
Install the latest Textkraft Pocket Version and start the app at least once. To test the widgets immediately, open a document with any content. The document only needs to be open in Textkraft while the widget is being set up, after which you can safely close it without losing the widget.

On the home screen, press and hold a widget, app or empty area until the apps are shaking.
Press the Plus key ( + ) at the top. Then select Textkraft from the Widget Gallery.
The "Cheat sheet" widget is available in three sizes, which can be reached by swiping left/right.
The font size of the widget depends on the amount of text and your later settings.
Select "Add Widget". The new widget appears and continues to wiggle.
You can now move the widget. Then select "Done" or the Home button.
Now press and hold the widget until a menu appears.
Choose the option "Edit Widget".
Select one of your documents opened in Textkraft under "Document".
Method: Should the complete text, your selection, a paragraph or a chapter be shown?
If you let text rotate, set the shortest change interval. iOS is not accurate in this.
Now you can select the font size and color theme.
"Light+Dark" switches automatically with the dark mode of your iPhone.
"Compact Mode" means no lines breaks and unnecessary spaces.
"Last Update" shows the time of the last update in the widget.
If you make changes in Textkraft, you must close the keyboard to update the widget.
Ideal for shopping and to-do lists: When you tap on a widget, Textkraft opens immediately ...
...and switches to the right document. However, the document must be open for this.
