Editorial

Workflow Directory

Welcome to the Editorial workflow directory! This is the place to explore what others have created with Editorial. You can share your own workflows directly from the app.

If you view this page on your iOS device (with Editorial installed), you can download the linked workflows directly, by tapping on the Install Workflow button on the preview pages.

You can search for publicly shared workflows by their title or description.

Visual Find & Replace

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.

Editorial Backup

Saves or restores a backup of all Editorial workflows, snippets, bookmarks, and local documents as a zip file in Dropbox (this requires the Dropbox account to be linked). Please note: If you want to restore a backup on a different device, you first have to download the backup file (just tap on it in the document list). This is required because Editorial doesn't sync zip files by default. Restoring a backup will *overwrite* all existing workflows, snippets, and bookmarks, so it's possible that you'll lose data this way. The best way to avoid any data loss is to create a backup before restoring anything.

Get App Price

Queries the iTunes Store API to search for an app's name, returns formatted name and price (in USD) in a popover. The workflow can optionally create an affiliate link if affiliate information is provided in two variables at the top. More information on affiliate links and iTunes Search API: http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/ http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/resources/documentation/itunes-store-web-service-search-api.html#searching

Preserve Line Breaks

Preserve Line Breaks was inspired by Brett Terpstra's Mac Service of the same name. To preserve a line break in iOS, markdown syntax requires that you type three spaces. But in iOS, typing two spaces generates a period, which drives me nuts. This workflow takes the text of a document, adds three spaces to the end of each line as required by Markdown, and the replaces the original text with the proper Markdown syntax.

Paste & Fold CSS

This is a companion to my “Minify CSS” workflow. It lets you paste a massive chunk of text into your document and immediately fold it. Get “Minify CSS” at http://www.editorial-workflows.com/workflow/5770324968734720/nEuts0sTe90

Minify CSS

Compress your CSS with this simple workflow. This workflow nukes all unnecessary white space and comments and copies the result to your clipboard. I created it to drop CSS into my Editorial projects when I need to work off line, so the minified CSS comes wrapped in style tags.

Extract Inline CSS

If you test CSS by using inline styles before adding it to your style sheets, then you might find this workflow handy. Here’s how it works: First, add inline styles via the “style” attribute. If the tag has other attributes, then style be the first one or the workflow will not function. Next, select the text from which you want to extract your inline CSS and run this workflow. Visibly, you’ll see your inline CSS stripped from your tags and the style attributes changed into class attributes. The extracted CSS has been copied to your clipboard and is ready to paste into your style sheet.

Lock Widows & Orphans

This workflow strategically adds nonbreaking spaces to prevent orphans and widows. Orphans and widows are typography terms for a couple types of awkward text wrapping breaks, which have a negative impact on readability. This workflow can be a bit heavy handed. That’s why I set it up so that you can apply it two ways. If you select text, then the workflow will expand the selection to encompass the nearest full lines (a necessity of the grep search/replace quarries) and only affect them. If you don’t select any text, then the workflow will run on your entire document. While you may want to only apply it to one paragraph at a time, especialy if you’re still touching up your work, the workflow should be safe to run across your whole document. I did what I could to ensure it won’t insert nonbreaking space glyphs where they don’t belong. You can even run the workflow repeatedly, and it won’t mess up. That’s because there’s a section of the workflow that first strips out its effects before applying them, preventing the added nonbreaking space glyphs from throwing off the search parameters. There’s a companion workflow for this one, “Unlock Widows & Orphans,” which is just the queries from the first half of this workflow, which simply allows you to strip out the effects. That’s super useful if you need to go back and edit your copy. Get “Unlock Widows & Orphans” here: http://www.editorial-workflows.com/workflow/5882681648742400/1xKA-wP6bWk One last note: Editorial’s grep handling is somewhat limited, so it’s possible I missed something. If I catch it, then I’ll update this workflow.
