Scholarly writing with Editorial
I'm new to the forum, but have been loving Editorial since it was released. I'm posting because I am curious to know if there are any other users out there using Editorial for scholarly writing. To help with my own academic work, I've written two workflows that might be of interest to any other scholarly-types on this forum.
- One for searching your Zotero library and adding cites to a local BibTeX file
- Another for inserting Citekeys from a local BibTex file
The two workflows are meant to work together (if you couldn't tell) to produce Pandoc ready documents & citation files. I am still testing the Pandoc transformation stuff, so I'm not sure how well that part of it works yet. I'm still tinkering (heavily) with both of these workflows, but I wanted to share them so people could test them, modify them, and break them.
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).
ooo, thank you!
