Where are the files?

I’ve enjoyed working with Pythonista over the past year, so today when I needed to do some Markdown editing, I purchased Editorial.
I may just be mad, but for the life of me, I can’t find the files I’m creating. I want to find them so I can modify and add to them via Shortcuts and Share widgets.
But while I’ve created some files of all types, naming them with unusual strings and including unusual strings in them so that I should be able to locate them in Files via text search, I can’t. They aren’t there, in Recents, in On My iPad, or on iCloud Drive.
I found a configuration setting about Dropbox syncing, so I gave that a try, but the default folder (/Apps/Editorial) wasn’t created in Dropbox. So I created it, and tried to do a sync cycle, but nothing happened. So then I dropped a random Markdown file into that folder, and it showed up in Editorial, and if I modified it the modifications showed up in Dropbox. But the other files in Editorial aren’t there.
It’s very strange... it seems like it isn’t writing out files at all, but I force-quit Editorial and restarted it, and the Markdown documents still show up, so it must be storing the files... somewhere.
Is it using some strange hidden files or something, and if so, can I change that behavior so it just acts like Pythonista, Edidown, or any other iPad app where I can get to my files via the Files app?
I apologize if I’m missing something very basic—since no one else has mentioned this on the forum as far as I can see, I imagine I’m just not looking in the right place or forgot to toggle some setting or something. I’d very much appreciate the hint! Thanks!
