Editorial Workflows

Variable Exctract

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 is a TEST workflow that takes a variable from the main workflow, edits it inside of the Custom UI action, and returns the edited variable to the main workflow (outside of the output panel of the Custom UI action.)

In this example, the original greeting variable in the main workflow was "hey", but notice when you try to output the greeting variable in the main workflow, it outputs the edited version.

So I have effectively returned a variable from within the Custom UI workflow, to a single variable in the main workflow.

When editing the text field, make sure to press ENTER or tap another field to commit the changes, otherwise it will output the text before you changed it.

The variables in the main UI section do not have to be there, this is just for deomomstrstion as to how the variables can be changed.
