    Hi, I placed a shortcut to a .txt in my home screen, but whenever I click it, it opens a new instance of the file. Anyone knows how to make it open the same version I was working with?

    Thanks

    I just tried to recreate the problem with Solid Explorer. It saved just fine. What file manager are you using?

    Tried SE. Still a little weird, but better.
    - if I tap the home button then open the file again, it will open a new instance, BUT in a different tab. It will take a while to open it.
    - if I hit back button, it will ask to save. When I click it again, it will open a little faster

    I would ratter have autosave + consistent behaviour. Will keep looking, maybe I need a dedicated editor.
