Workflow Directory

Welcome to the Editorial workflow directory! This is the place to explore what others have created with Editorial. You can share your own workflows directly from the app.

If you view this page on your iOS device (with Editorial installed), you can download the linked workflows directly, by tapping on the Install Workflow button on the preview pages.

You can search for publicly shared workflows by their title or description.

Visual Find & Replace

This workflow uses the UI module to allow you to do a find & replace throughout your selected text or the entire document if no text is selected. The UI was designed to work on both the iPhone and the iPad. Options include: * Text or Regular Expression * Case-sensitive searches * Preview panel to make sure you're replacing what you want to replace (especially helpful for regex). This was adapted from the built-in Diff with Clipboard workflow.

Editorial Backup

Saves or restores a backup of all Editorial workflows, snippets, bookmarks, and local documents as a zip file in Dropbox (this requires the Dropbox account to be linked). Please note: If you want to restore a backup on a different device, you first have to download the backup file (just tap on it in the document list). This is required because Editorial doesn't sync zip files by default. Restoring a backup will *overwrite* all existing workflows, snippets, and bookmarks, so it's possible that you'll lose data this way. The best way to avoid any data loss is to create a backup before restoring anything.

Get App Price

Queries the iTunes Store API to search for an app's name, returns formatted name and price (in USD) in a popover. The workflow can optionally create an affiliate link if affiliate information is provided in two variables at the top. More information on affiliate links and iTunes Search API: http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/ http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/resources/documentation/itunes-store-web-service-search-api.html#searching

Preserve Line Breaks

Preserve Line Breaks was inspired by Brett Terpstra's Mac Service of the same name. To preserve a line break in iOS, markdown syntax requires that you type three spaces. But in iOS, typing two spaces generates a period, which drives me nuts. This workflow takes the text of a document, adds three spaces to the end of each line as required by Markdown, and the replaces the original text with the proper Markdown syntax.

Shows the iOS share sheet with the selected text as input. If nothing is selected, the entire document is shared. In a Markdown document, the text can optionally be converted to HTML first.

Copy as OmniFocus URL

Based on Ken Case’s workflow for adding TaskPaper projects directly to OmniFocus, this one copies it to the clipboard as a URL so it can be a template that launches straight from a note in an OmniFocus task

Adjust done datetime

TLDR: add or subtract days, hours and minutes to/from done timestamps. TO USE: mark a task done, then invoke this workflow. The task must have a READ MORE: I keep a log of done tasks as part of a Quantified Self protocol. To support that effort, I mark tasks done with date and time, and it helps if the time is accurate to within the half hour at least. But I don't always mark a task done at the appropriate time. Particularly when I'm away from a device or working through a series of related tasks that flow into each other, I may not log done tasks until my end of day review. With a Bluetooth keyboard, it's not so hard, but if I'm working on screen (although a two-finger long press on the keyboard makes it relatively easy to position the caret for edits) I prefer this workflow for manipulating dates. Feel free to post comments and suggestions for improvement. V1.0 2018-03-08
