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.

Editorial Favorites

This workflow provides quick access to your favorite files in Editorial. It provides the ability to add the currently viewed file to your favorites, edit your list of favorites, or open a file from your favorites list. The workflow operates under the assumption that all of your notes are stored in a single folder in Dropbox. However, I believe you could easily tweak the workflow to support a multiple-folder setup.


This workflow contains a custom action that is a web crawlwer that crawls starting from a given url. By default, it uses the current browser url.

Paste as...

Pastes the contents of the clipboard as a Markdown block quote, code block, or regular paragraph.


Converts the HTML in clipboard (set from Workflow.app) to markdown, and opens the .md file in other apps. Markdown also get copied to Clipboard. Can easily be changed to also save to Dropbox (see comments in python action) To capture only Article HTML in any browser, and pass it on to this workflow, use: https://workflow.is/workflows/1b455f2b33d54b04ba93d9cb8c234a21 Also just delete the last action if Editorial is your markdown editor of choice.
