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: Replaces the selected word(s) with a Markdown link, pointing to the first Google result. E.g. when you select "Markdown", it is replaced with "[Markdown](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown)".
