In my second appearance on Automators (part of the Relay FM network), I’m back to talk with David Sparks and Rosemary Orchard once again about Drafts. We dive in on some of the new stuff from version 26 which introduced custom themes and syntaxes. We also touch on a few other updates from the first version to now as well. I hope you enjoy it.
There were a couple of things in the episode that I wanted to follow-up on here, including the homework assignment David gave me. I’m thrilled that the time spent with David and Rosemary gave me the idea, which made me reconsider some things with my personal journaling and changed how I’m doing it going forward.

Today, Greg Pierce posted a tweet about the new #ShotOniPhone Challenge:
Rene Ritchie followed up with this tweet:
And my reply:
When I first saw Rene’s tweet, I knew he was being snarky. However, my first thought went to Shortcuts when I saw it (hence my tweet). Renaming of files on iOS is a perfect use case of Shortcuts. But rather than stop at just simply renaming a file, it’s possible to submit the entry all with a couple of taps on iOS. And now that I’ve said that you can do it with Shortcuts, I figured I should make one if I’m going to put out the thought. So, with a little bit of work, I created the #ShotOniPhone shortcut.

There are many thoughts I’ve been having since WWDC. I’m mainly lamenting the choice I made by buying an iPad Pro 9.7″, 3 months before the new 10.5″ was announced. But somewhere in the mix of all of my feelings and re-watching some of the keynote, I had some really awesome thoughts about some amazing productivity ideas.

Normally when I have an idea, I’ll write about it. This past time, I decided to do something a bit different, and write more about how I felt rather than explain it. But, I also realize that this new-to-me idea might need a bit of help and guidance for those that aren’t well versed in the subject, like me. So I’ll do my best here to explain.
