Editorial Workflows

Fountain Preview

public workflow

Install Workflow...

This workflow contains at least one Python script. Only use it if you trust the person who shared this with you, and if you know exactly what it does.

I understand, install the 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: Shows an HTML preview of Fountain documents. The first time the workflow is run, the `screenplain` module (by Martin Vilcans) is downloaded from GitHub, which is then used to do the conversion.

This doesn't work anymore, is there an alternative?

Ran into same problem when trying to hack it together with the recent sidebar previews. Outside my limited coding ability to fix or rewrite from ground up.

This worked great for me, but on the iPhone the preview is zoomed in. iPad it looks great. Is there a way to adjust size?
