Editorial 1.2 for iOS

Editorial, the incredible Markdown text editor and productivity app for iOS, just released a huge 1.2 update this morning. Don’t let the version number fool you — 1.2 vastly improves on 1.1, which released in May 2014. In my mind this is Editorial 3.0.

As before, Federico Viticci of MacStories has the full rundown of what’s new, but here’s a list of my favorite features:

  • Support for the latest iPhones (6 and 6 Plus) and iOS 8
  • Custom document templates (Gabe Weatherhead covers these well at Macdrifter)
  • Custom preview styles (HTML/CSS)
  • Support for CriticMarkup syntax highlighting (which is quite useful for my new freelance editing business)
  • Browser tabs (I can’t tell you how happy this feature made me when it came to the beta)
  • Editor search now lets you highlight and replace all (or individual) instances of a word/phrase (this used to be doable only with 3rd-party workflows). If you’re using an external Bluetooth keyboard, CMD+F brings up the search options.
  • Text folding (lets you hide sections of text so you can focus on other things)
  • Ability to arrange paragraphs via drag-and-drop (enable this in settings; again, this previously could only be done with workflows)
  • I feel like I need a drum roll for this one: In-browser 1Password support! High fives all around.

What are you waiting for? Go download Editorial 1.2 now. It’s just $6 on the iOS App Store.
