Scholarly writing with Editorial
Ive just made a workflow called Highlighter which allows you to use CSS to style markdown.
This particular workflow allows you to highlight a specified keyword and change it's color, and it's background color, but it can be adapted to change the color of selected text also. Also I am working on a Justification workflow to align text (based on this workflow.)

How does the styling work, in MD / CSS / HTML terms?
Might be especially helpful for Evernote if it's compliant.
I've uploaded a text decoration workflow as well as a marker workflow. (For underlining and strike-troughs).
Any text in the editor can be wrapped in an html tag. Then all you have to do is add an inline CSS
At first I thought I had to covert markdown to html, but I was pleasantly surprised that the editor's preview window for markdown picked up the html tags.
I am not sure how it displays it, but it does!
More formatting workflows to come! I will do tables eventually.

`# My workflows for scholarly writing:
sets font color, alignment, and font size of the selected text.
makes bold, italic, <u>underlined</u>,
snippet, <sup>superscript</sup>, <sub>subscript</sub>, or <span style="text-decoration:overline">overline</span> the selected text.
Marks the <mark>selected text</mark>, as with a yellow highlighter.
changes the text color/background-color of a use-specified <b style="color:red; background-color:yellow;text-align:center">word</b>.
The forum doesn't show the markdown as it was in the preview. Just copy and paste this post into a markdown document to see the partial results.

This should be a great addition but I can't get this to work. It keeps telling me that I need to put in the user and key even after placing these in the proper place in the script.
I am working on an APA and MLA workflow for creating a bibliography page. APA is done, just need to finish the MLA part.

TutorialDoctor, any chance you'd make a Chicago/Turabian footnote & bibliography tool?
Or maybe just share how you'd go about building a footnote generator that pops up, requests info, then formats & inserts it properly. I can poke around and figure out how to get it to Chicago/Turabian. The Workflow actions and Python are daunting for an utter newbie.
I can see the ridiculous power we have at our fingertips in Editorial, but most of that power is at the top of a fairly steep learning curve. I'll get there. Slowly.
Hi aminatelli. I am always looking for workflows to make, and also for ways to speed up that process. Also, I try to make that curve not so steep for newcomers, so I have posted nearly 100 workflows. I have a few tutorial workflows as well.
Your request sounds like a challenge I'll take. It shouldn't be too hard.
All of my workflows can be used for learning also (I try to design them that way).
