Editorial Workflows

Visual Find & Replace

public workflow

Install Workflow

This is a workflow for Editorial, a Markdown and plain text editor for iOS. To download it, you need to view this page on a device that has the app installed.

Description: 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.

If you have any suggestions, find any bugs, or want to see my other workflows for Editorial, please visit http://sweetnessoffreedom.wordpress.com/projects

This workflow crashes Editorial my iPad Mini every time I try to Preview.

same here. Is the workflow truncated? Seems the actual replace functionality is missing...

Sorry, I'm going on vacation next week and will try to look at it then.

This should be flagged to not work. Three months and still crashes!
