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. If you have any suggestions, find any bugs, or want to see my other workflows for Editorial, please visit http://sweetnessoffreedom.wordpress.com/projects

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.

LinkReferenceFile This workflow links two files together via a sequence reference number. While editing your main file select a word and then call the Workflow LinkReferenceFilePublic. The Workflow will create a reference file for you, open it, and prompt you to input some text. (You can opt to enter the text into the reference file later.) Then it will return to the original file you were editing and add the link. Touching the links in either file will open the linked file. The next number for linking is stored in lastLinkReferenceFileNumber.txt file in your Dropbox account. (If the file doesn't exist the Workflow will create it for you). The linking reference number starts with 'z' with an appended number (i.e. z1, z2, z3, etc.) You can set a starting number in the lastLinkReferenceFileNumber.txt by simply editing the file and changing the number. (I prefer to start with 1000. Therefore my reference numbers are z1000, z1001, etc.) The reference files all start with 'z' so as to sort them at the end of the file list in your current directory. [This Workflow was based on Create Zettel Workflow.]
