First Look at Editorial 1.1
@omz super excited. The screenshots look pretty great. Excited to check out the new features. New to Editorial still, and newer to python, so hopefully this isn't a dumb question. Could the webbrowser.can_open() function be used to determine which apps on that device have url schemes, in a way that it could pull a list or even tell you directly the schemes, or is it simply for the script's benefit? Hopefully I managed to ask what I meant. Keep working on this amazing software, and I'll keep using it. Thanks for your time and effort, cant wait!

@the_buch It's unfortunately not possible to get a list of all supported URL schemes on a device (there's just no API for that), so you'd have to check a list of known ones to see which apps are installed...
Okay. That makes sense. Thanks for the swift response! Have a nice day

Sorry for asking this question again (but it was not resolved): Would the new version use a "real" MultiMarkdown engine? For people using subscript frequently (as in H~2O or H_2O for water) this is really impornant.
Thanks for your feedback and best regards!

Any updates for when Editorial 1.1 will be completed and released?
I would also love to see an iPhone and Mac version as well.

I've really been enjoying Editorial. Fantastic work as a whole and the 1.1 update is promising.
My workflow list is getting long and cumbersome. Are you considering adding the ability to organize workflows in a hierarchical structure of some kind like user-customizable folders or a similar function?
I would be interested in the workflow organization feature suggested above, by mconnors as well. The list is growing at least a few times a week it seems. Of course, even without such a feature, I'm still just impressed with the fact that this exists at all.

I second the comment about having mathjax local. Most of the time I don't have wifi access on my iPad. I need to have notes with math and every other app falls short. This app would be perfect with local mathjax.

I tried to have a local MathJax folder in my dropbox. And it works after adding the mathjax <script>...</script> element in the markdown file with the link pointing to the local Mathjax folder.
However, markdown seems to be parsing before mathjax gets control. Though a lot of the equations get parsed by mathjax, anything with a superscript is parsed by the markdown parser. Hence some of the equations look ugly.
There might be other elements (in addition to superscript) where parsing fails.
It should be possible to take care of this and also include a <script>...</script> to the local mathjax folder in the template used to render the HTML preview.
Hoping this will appear in version 1.1 (which we are awaiting eagerly)
Any news here? I am very interested in buying Editorial but I do not see any information if a update for iOS 7 will really come. Also I tried to ask questions in several ways (twitter mail and here) and never got an answer. That's really sad because good support for an paid app is important for me.
He's probably busy. I imagine it takes a lot to develop and maintain an app like this. But to my knowledge, and I'm pretty certain, it's supposed to be in the near future. Though honestly, as good as the ios7 update screenshots look, I'd be okay with the app as it is now. It's pretty incredible. There's an excellent community here and the Workflows Directory has some good stuff. The app itself has good support really. I was unsure about buying it a few months ago until I read the MacStories review of Editorial. Check it out if you're curious and haven't already read it. It convinced me I wanted it bad enough, and needed it. There's also an iBook which is an extended version of Viticci's review there, with many workflows. If you mean info specifically about an iOS 7 update, stick around. It's definitely an awesome app as is, but I am looking forward, eagerly at that, to the iOS 7 update, judging by the screenshots above.
Hi and thanks for your answers here and in the other thread. Of course he may be very busy, but a short reaction should always be possible as he can do on other posts regarding the other app. Just a short notice like he is still working on it and it will come as an update (and not as a new app ;) ) would be enough for me to buy. That's really not too much I think....

Ole has posted that he's working on the new version and it won't be a new app. I find him very responsive to problems and issues.
You're welcome. And peterh, I'm glad it won't be, I haven't even got to use TextExpander in the app. Jumped on the bandwagon after Apple made them change their ways. Of course,that's not a big deal with the in-app snippets and workflow possibilities. Plus, Editorial being what it is, if it were a separate app, I'd buy it right away all the same, now that I know.

Yep, still working on it, and of course it will be a free update. Editorial is a pretty complex app, and a lot has changed with iOS 7. Sometimes things just take longer than expected. I usually don't write about everything I'm working on because I want to have some surprises left for the release. ;)
Thanks for reply and clearify these questons. I decided to buy yesterday and i really like what is possible. Of course this app is very complex but this makes it really flexible. Looking forward for the new version ;)
@omz I do enjoy surprises!

I had an idea about the problem with rendering equations with the mathjax.
Maybe we can do some sort of hash on the content between $ $ and whatever is used for the display math, convert to html and then unhash.
This way the latex is not touched during the conversion to html.
I don't think I have the know how with editorial to do this yet, but I thought I would share the idea.
I find it amazing how little attention is given to the need of writing math. It took a while for ibooks to get it, currently no way to do it with pages on the ipad. Definitely a void.

I was wondering if it would be possible to implement something like typewriter mode (like in iAWriter). When using bluetooth keyboard, sometimes I find cursor at the very bottom of the screen and have to use some empty paragraphs to see what I am writing. Keeping cursor in the middle of the screen would solve it.
Looking forward to 1.1 anyway.
