Accessing a pdf url from editorial in workflow app
Martindolan last edited by
I have generated a PDFs in editorial from a markdown document - when I try to make this file available to the workflow app it fails. What's transfered to the workflow app is file:///var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/864C4E68-C907-4D2D-9452-FA4232A2945B/Library/Application%20Support/Dropbox/August-15-invoice.pdf
How do I access the PDFs file in another app such as workflow.

Do you want to send the file as file to workflows app through URL scheme? I'm pretty sure that's not possible. iOS apps are sandboxed, so they can't access other apps' folders. You can always share your PDF through system share sheet.

I solved the problem by converting markdown to html in editorial and passing that to the workflow app, workflow then converted the html to rich text which it could then convert to a pad. The two apps work very well together. Thanks for the reply.
