    There's a couple of markdown codes I'd like to see supported in Editorial:

    checkbox: - [ ] a check box
    highlight: ::highlight::

    These would be grand.

    Sorry to speak incorrectly. I got this from DropBox website:

    "Beyond traditional encryption

    Dropbox protects files in transit between our apps and our servers, and at rest. "

    So the "at rest" encryption comes from DropBox NOT Editorial.

    Thanks OMZ.

    I've noticed that the DropBox sync is painfully slow. At first I thought it might be DropBox itself, or WIFI, or my VPN but when checking other apps it's rocket fast. Why is Editorial so slow?

    Also, I often lose documents when it's slow. The document disappears from the file list. Then when I try to create it again I get "same file name" error message. It's really annoying.

    Any future fix planned? iCloud sync in the future?

    Thanks.

    The new DropBox interface supports encryption in transit and at rest. Editorial was updated a few months (?) ago to support this fuctionality.

    Super cool. Can I ask how you’d display the file list (left slider) of the current open document? Thanks in advance.

    I often want to refer to a CSS file using the HTML "link href" but want to avoid relative paths.

    Often my files are deep in a tree structure. Rather than remembering how may levels I'm at (i.e. ../../../etc.) I want to create a template in Editorial that will simply insert an absolute Dropbox path. For example:

    <link href="dropbox_path/zFonts/myfont.css">

    Does anyone know how to use an absolute dropbox path?

    Thanks in advance.

    Feature request: In file list view, allow manual sorting.(currently only Name/Date sorting is supported).

    However was working just fine before the last upgrade. (I always put two hard returns between my footnotes and then they worked fine.)

    After the update I went back to some of my documents and noticed that the footnotes seem to be broken. Am I missing something? Here's how I've always written the markdown:

    Here's a footnote [^1]

    some more text

    [^1]: This is a footnote.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Would like to see iCloud supported now that it's more stable. Dropbox (as well as most other similar services) is blocked in China. VPNs are needed to access them. iCloud works without issues.

    Okay, Not sure exactly how I'd copy/paste 12 chaining Editorial workflows (or even one workflow) into this reply, so I've created sample workflows of what I'm talking about and made them public for any/all to test.

    Install the following:

    dtTestVariableCorruption1:

    http://www.editorial-workflows.com/workflow/5834706159403008/IujcOpb4G4g

    dtTestVariableCorruption2:

    http://www.editorial-workflows.com/workflow/5906930329452544/7WUEzjL2pXA

    Then add these three documents into your directory:
    document1.md
    document2.md
    document3.md

    Content can be anything. Run the script, change the data in any of the documents, run it again. You'll see what I mean.

    (The first workflow calls the second workflow and counts characters and repeats for each of the files.)

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Not sure how to explain this bug (?). When I run a series of python scripts within Editorial and then try to set a variable I get content from the Input variable IN ADDITION to what I'm setting the variable to. At first I thought it was the result of some buffering so added several Alerts between the variable assignments, no go. It's almost as if Editorial is forcing content from the previous event into my variable assignment. Anyone else see/report this behavior?

    Is there any way to access Editorial's "Editor Settings" through python scripting?

    I have some workflows that need auto-caps on and others that need it off. Basically, when the workflow starts I want to be able to set the spell check, auto-correct, etc. on or off. Anyone had success doing this? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Although not a split screen I wanted something similar and wrote a workflow that shows a second file in a window with an option to insert part of the text into the existing text being edited. You also might find it helpful.

    Thanks. I'll start coding. If successful I'll share the workflow.

    Thanks. Sure I could build my own smtp interface.

    Was thinking it might be a simple task to use Editorial's Send Email workflow module. But instead of placing text/html into the body, I was looking for a way to simply ATTACH the existing file. If that's not doable, I'll go the build-my-own solution.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Has anyone done any workflows creating email attachments?

    I have a partial workflow working but don't know how to hand the attachment off to the workflow.set_output(?).

    I'd like to send text documents to my Kindle as attachments and/or HTML files.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You might also try a CSS rule for UL and use "star indents" instead.

    Here's the CSS: ul li {list-style-type: none;}

    Here's the Markdown:

    • Key point
      • sub-point
        • sub-sub point

    This gives me an outline view with full left justified indents.

    I use this simple rule for giving talks/speeches. In preview I get perfect indents.
