Feature script on tablet

Am I reading this right and that feature scripts, like distance measure, is not a supported on mobile devices. I am only a hobbyist but have been forced off a laptop and onto a tablet.

    You can add them to your toolbar and use them (see last icon on the pallette), you just can't edit them.

    Who forced you off the laptop?

    Laptop old and Broke. Cancer and a stroke and unable to work have left the wallet a little light and can not make replacing this a top priority, for what some may not consider a large spend, regrettably I do. Currently saving for a good iPad pencil finger getting sore. 

    I had already successfully added the “measure distance” feature script along with another couple and other than “MD” Script and successfully used them. I have failed to make any of them work on the iPad. Thought it was me

    I had found that on my modelling where I used arrays ( I think they are called) that I had previously produced on laptop, that this to was no longer available. 

    I am sure a few variables and a bit of maths will get me a useable result. I am trying to produce knurling effect but on a flat surface with the surface being able to be of variable size. 

    Thank you for your response.
