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 a popover with a list of files in a configurable folder.

The workflow does not work, unfortunately!
It says a certain folder does not exist. Maybe it can be fixed. Thank you.

I am sorry, I was giving up to quickly. I thought Folder and Location were variables available by default but now I set them manually.
