What Features Would you like in Editorial?
Shame there's no "like" button here. The ability to extend Markdown relatively easily would be good. For now I'm contemplating injecting HTML (almost wrote JCL :-) ) directly.
In the editor you can store additional info in a
variableand do computations between that variable and
These variables could be changed via workflows. This way, you can easily alter document content via workflows.
I think this would be a big plus to editorial. Sort of how the [Calca](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/calca/id635757879? app works perhaps?) app works?
I could use this to reference a CSS file in an HTML link as well.
Full screen editor
The Sidebar preview workflow gives a live update of text in the markdown editor. Perhaps some manipulation of this, and a custom UI will suffice? I'd rather it were built in though.
It's hard to design in the UI view due to the fact you can't zoom out. Also, content dragged too far to the bottom, cannot be dragged onto the view without deleting the whole action and starting over.
Pinch to Zoom inside of the custom UI action.
I don't know if this is possible (I just use apps and don't know a thing about developing them), but I would like to see a ios8 widget in the notification center that could display the contents of my *.taskpaper file. Perhaps it can be extended with workflows to show only items with due dates within certain days of today, maybe by exporting my main list out to a separate file and displaying that through the widget.
I'm hoping editorial takes full advantage of the new extensions API in IOS8. I haven't upgraded, and don't plan on it, but such a change in editorial would be tempting. Perhaps for now, an edit to my Notification or Event Timer workflow can help?
The date picker can pick dates, do a countdown, and be a timer, but it cannot pick from a user-specified list.
A picker widget (modification of the datepicker) that can scroll through a list
For now, a tableView has to be used, but in some circumstances it crashes Editorial.
Solarized text mode would be wonderful.
I indent sub-lists in a Taskpaper document but when moving the top level item, the sub lists don't move.
Sub-lists move with their parent list item. Marking a parent list item done should mark all sub items as done also. Once all sub items are marked done, a full project should be marked done.
Perhaps regular expressions can be used to do this.
I did create a "UI Outline" workflow for moving lines.
I'd like to get an export to PDF feature. Being able to just mail out print-ready docs would be incredibly useful for me. I tried the solutions given in this forum but none of them worked satisfactory. It seems to me iOS already has this built in it, so maybe it could be easily implemented. Some competitors make use of it (e.g. 1Writer). Very important: the generated PDFs should respect the page boundaries I set in the template.
I'd also like to be able to use multiple md-templates by just switching between them. Three slots for templates would be enough for me.
Interfacewise it should be possible to hide the top bar as well. The bar could then slide in together with the file selector when one swipes from left to right.
Quite often, I find myself needing to repeat the current workflow under a condition. I've posted a hackish way using the sub-workflow action but...
Access to sub_workflow() in the API via Python would be useful.
Perhaps a workflow.sub_workflow() function?
Or maybe a workflow.run_workflow('workflow_name')** function?
Here is my hack:
At least if there was a parameter for the sub_workflow that allowed you to specify which workflow to run! by name! that might be okay too.
Emulating keyboard key events via python (or even an action)
Useful for triggering workflows or snippets.
I would really appreciate a setting to make folders sort alphabetically within the list of files (Mac style) instead of at the top (Windows style). I find the latter incredibly rage-inducing.
Add multiple actions at one time to workflow (instead of one-by-one)
