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: Saves or restores a backup of all Editorial workflows in Dropbox (this requires the Dropbox account to be linked).
