Separate names with a comma.

I seem to need a 'back' or 'exit' button. But where is it.
The home button should close it.
Of course, I tried that. It closes the app, but when I reopen the app, the same txt file occupies my entire screen and I still cannot get rid of it. Only turn of/on does the job.
You need to close the app in the Recent Apps bar. Four finger swipe up the screen, find the app, long press on it until a red minus sign appears on it. Press the minus sign and four finger swipe down the screen to return to normal.
When you restart the app it will start up without the txt file.
What app are you in? If we have the name, I am sure someone uses it - and can tell you what to do to close the text file without having to close the app.
If it looks like this:
Tap it once, then the name of the file appears (upper left corner):
Tap it, and you can leave the file.
Sounds complicated, no?
I will try it.
Look at my post. It should work.
Getting an open .txt file on SkyDrive to close gently
It most definitely does not. The app goes away and I can see my desktop but when I start the app up again, the same file is open and I'm back where I was.
The app is SkyDrive
Turning off the iPad kills it. (I think kill will do it too, but that's kind of brutal. There must be something more gentle than terminating a running app.)
