    When you're making a snippet, you have tokens you can access. Like I use a snippet consisting of the clipboard token with the abbreviation ppp. There is also a Browser URL token. Just make a new snippet, insert that token, set an abbreviation and you're good to go. Easy as pi. Much easier than making a workflow for it.

    @briarfox @omz I just started getting them too. I tried adding from Gist using the Workflow.app workflow and it crashed. I was at work so didn't have time to fiddle. Trying to open now and it crashes instantly, can't open at all. Reinstalled from test flight with no change. No I haven't tried restarting my device yet. I know.. I'm going to shortly ;)

    Just wanted to let it be known after seeing the above post. Was going to wait until later, you know, after I tried restarting my phone, but I have the time right now so why not? Mine is on iPhone 5, latest 1.6 beta build.

    Anybody know if it would be possible to merge two workflow backups into one so I can restore to both devices and not have to go through and figure out which is on which device, which isn't, and which in-progress ones I haven't shared are still only on which device, and then share them back and forth.

    If backups could be merged, somehow, that would be awesome. So anybody know any reason why that wouldn't be possible? If not, any ideas how to go about starting such a thing.

    Thanks folks.

    I have, though I know very little about JSON. Thanks for replying. I'll look into this and the workflow-sorting workflow. Btw, if you celebrate any, happy holidays. Thanks again!

    Of course, with workflow backups, I'm referring to the files made from this workflow by Ole.

    I knew I had seen it elsewhere. It was in Byword. It's possible an iOS bug with dark themes in apps. I thought I had seen it without a dark theme but that's the next thing I must test. At any rate, it's nothing of concern for me. Minimizing the keyboard and bringing it back up seems to fix it for the time being. I seem to get it even just from home button exit and return through icon on home screen. Here it is in Byword though.

    I've experienced this a couple times, in Editorial, but also outside of Editorial. With system keyboard and with TextExpander keyboard. So I don't think it's actually an Editorial issue. Well let me rephrase this. I'm fairly certain I experienced it elsewhere in iOS. I was busy and hadn't thought to really take note of where, or what may have set it off. I'll keep a better eye out and try what you said.

    @omz for reminders.get_reminders(completed=TRUE) is there currently, or could there be in a future version, a way to filter completed reminders with completion date. Perhaps something like reminders completed today, or the past week, or since a given date? That could be nice for keeping track of certain projects or self-quantification, et al. Also would like to see this module in Editorial eventually. Better than using url schemes in all these reminder workflows.

    I would like to. As of yet, I've not really thought of a good angle from which to approach this. Any ideas?

    I get popups frequently saying it couldn't sync a file (not necessarily the same file always). It usually does, but the popups, which come in pairs usually, are very annoying. I got these on version 1.0 but it seems a bit more frequent now. As of this point, it's nothing debilitating to my work, just an inconvenience.

    Agreed. If you can upload as markdown, I personally would find that exponentially more preferable to any proprietary format, especially Office-based formats. I have to use docx for school sometimes, due to some professors not being up to date with, nor caring about, technology. Though I write all my notes in markdown and most assignments start there too (if I can submit a PDF, I just use one of the workflows for that and it looks much nicer than the docx output I've been getting).

    Viticci had a script/workflow for uploading from Editorial to Wordpress (not the .com) blogs. I think it was in his iBook, but I could be wrong.

    This is very neat. Impressive to begin with (if not else, for the fact that it was developed on iOS, for iOS) but the fact that an 8 year old boy made it is all the more amazing. Your son is awesome. I can't imagine how proud you must be. Would he be willing to provide me a Python training crash course ;-)

    Very cool. Shake his hand for me. And then your own for doing such a good job as a father. Talk about a nerdy Father's Day gift!

    I'm curious if it's possible to have a workflow call an x-callback-url, do whatever it's supposed to, then have the same workflow pick back up upon returning with new input. I guess I'd use Philip Gruneich's 1Writer and Calca calculate action, which uses 1Writer's retParam to replace text with the calculation upon returning to the app. So, with that example, could you pause the workflow while sending the info to Calca, then continue on return and run actions on it, or would this require two workflows, or is there already a built in way to replace via URL scheme?

    Here's a workflow to turn Markdown to Docx. The output isn't formatted as nicely as I'd like, and my attempts to prettify it haven't been very successful, but it does work. I made it months ago but haven't shared it because of this. I don't know if the script will help but you're welcome to use it. It's a modification of Caleb McDaniel's MD to PDF. Uses Docverter. This one lets you rename the output and then opens it using console.quicklook

    Would actually love to see some improvements on the outputs formatting actually, if anybody ever gets a chance and feels so compelled. I'm interested to see if this publishing workflow of yours will be possible. Hope it is. And hope this helps, at least as an example. Cheers!

    Could it just be the ability to open .py's in Pythonista from Dropbox. Does that count as downloading code? I use a drafts action to save scripts that I can't otherwise open in Pythoniata via the New Gist script, save them to Dropbox as .py and that way I can open them in Pythonista on all my devices. But based on what somebody else said it doesn't seem like that ought to be a big deal.

    @omz that's interesting. I wasn't touching the device and even if I had activated that, nobody was speaking at the time, and certainly wouldn't have said anything close to what it typed. Weird. I wonder what could cause that and if it's really an issue in iOS and not Editorial. Thanks for the input. 1.1 is a beast! Love it. Thanks.

    Also, I guess it's a bug.mwell, to be honest, I have no idea what the heck this was. I was taking notes in my astronomy lab today and I wasn't typing at the time, but looked at my screen, with Editirial 1.1 open with a markdown file, and out of nowhere, in the current cursor position, three purple dots appeared, like an ellipses used to indicate "Loading..." In some apps, (they were about the size of the dots in the game, Dots). Then text appeared where the dots had been. I meant to get a screenshot, but it said something like "F. Don't have the change 5000. Bring" or very similar to that. In v1.0, I sometimes would hit the return key while outlining and I'd get a year automatically inserted. Well, a four digit number. Only a few times and I figured it was my iOS keyboard being dumb, but this was different. My iOS keyboard is pretty dumb, but still - as in it likes to put a question mark before a random word sometimes like ?this.

    Anyways, any ideas on what could cause something like that without me even touching the keyboard? Am I just crazy maybe? Thanks.

    Is there a way to edit/rearrange workflows in the browser bookmarks menu? Am I just missing something here? If not, might this be available in the future? Thanks.

    No worries. I'm sure if it's meant to be there, you'll get it there when you can. Was just curious if it was intentional, planned, or something I was overlooking. Thank!
