Description

Drafts, where text starts. Quickly capture text and send it almost anywhere!

Drafts lets you turn text into action – it’s a quick notebook, handy editor, and writing automation tool, all in one. Instead of tapping around other apps, capture in Drafts first. Open it and write right away, then do something useful with your words.

## HOW DRAFTS WORKS ##

CAPTURE EVERYWHERE:
Drafts opens to a new page with the keyboard ready so you can type immediately. Go hands-free with Dictation, or ask Siri to "Create a note using Drafts".

Drafts lets you get things down before you forget – no choosing document templates or waiting for your file to download.

USE YOUR WORDS:
Drafts is a launching-off point for text – use the actions to copy it, share it, or deep link into other apps and services. Compose a tweet or message, create a file in Dropbox, send a task off to Reminders – there are hooks into tons of your favorite apps.

REMEMBER IT NOW – OR LATER:
New entries go into the Inbox. Once there, you can Tag them for organization, Flag them for importance, or Archive them for long-term storage.

TAKE TEXT TO A NEW LEVEL:
Set up a text editing experience that’s perfect for you, with tons of interface adjustments like custom fonts and control over spacing, line height, and margins.

Use the customizable extended row above the keyboard to quickly convert, manipulate, and transform your writing. Make lists, use Markdown to get things just right.

Process your drafts quickly using unique features like Link Mode, Arrange Mode, and Focus Mode.

## WHY YOU’LL LOVE DRAFTS ##

IT WILL CHANGE HOW YOU USE YOUR DEVICES:
Drafts gives you a new approach to using your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, letting you write first and think about what to do with it later. Try it in your dock for a week, you'll find you can't live without it.

GETTING WORDS DOWN HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER:
Drafts opens lightning fast and with support for capture via Siri, the widget, share extension, file import, and dictation - Drafts is like post-its updated for the smartphone era.

POWERFUL ACTIONS:
Actions make Drafts a Swiss Army knife for text. Integrate with a bewildering array of apps and services.

What's New

Version 5.1.1

5.1 changes below. 5.1.1 is a quick fix for an issue that could stall actions from running.

### New action steps

- `Event` action step returns for creating calendar events with default system card. [Docs and sample action](http://getdrafts.com/actions/steps/event).
- `Box` action step to create, append, prepend to files in Box.com service. [Docs and Examples](/actions/steps/box)
- `Open in...` action step to support old-style document interaction export. [Docs and Examples](/actions/steps/openin)

### Other new bits

- Workspaces and tag filters now support "All - Any" mode selection to control whether drafts in the filter should match all the selected tags (and), or any of them (or). This setting will be saved with Workspaces.
- Action steps in an action can now be disabled and duplicated (swipe on step in action editing to select). Handy addition for work-in-progress step modifications and testing variants of scripts.
- Recent action log history (not specific to individual drafts) is now accessible from history button at top of action list. Makes access to recently performed actions quicker. Great for troubleshooting errors as well.
- Action log entries can now be deleted (Swipe right).
- CMD-Return external keyboard shortcut to toggle editor focus.
- Support traditional table edit mode for better VoiceOver experience.

### Scripting changes

- Better scripting of Calendars and Events, including the ability to read calendar events. Details:
- `Calendar.default` property which returns the system default calendar for new events.
- `Calendar.find(title)` method looks up a calendar by name.
- `Calendar.getAllCalendars();` returns array of all known calendars on the device.
- `events(startDate, endDate);` method to query the contents of a calendar. Returns an array of `Event` objects. This can be used to import calendar events into a drafts, among other things.
- `event.edit()` method. Displays a `Event` object in the system event editing card. Allows scripting to create modify the default values for the event (start/end, add alarms, etc.) then display the event for modification/editing and adding to the calendar.
- More detail in [scripting reference](http://beta-reference.getdrafts.com/)
- `Box` script object to read and write files to Box.com service. [Docs](http://beta-reference.getdrafts.com/objects/Box.html)
- `editor.isActive` bool property to determine if editor is currently in edit mode.

#### Other fixes and updates

- **Fix:** Restore last selection when opening a draft.
- **Fix:** Better restore of text selections when undo/redo are used.
- **Fix:** Improve frequency of updates to app badge.
- **Fix:** Evernote action setup to use "Text" output not properly encoding some HTML entities.
- **Fix:** Omit drafts in the trash from queries unless the trash folder is explicitly queried.
- **Fix:** Various improvements for dynamic text.
- **Change:** Better error reporting when file imports fail for some reason.
- **Fix:** Workaround dark theme tinting of the system file import view.

I love drafts

FourOfFiveWits

Easily the best writing app

The best writing app in the store

Danielsuit

Drafts is the best thing about the App Store. And Drafts 5 is insanely powerful. You can turn it into the perfectly customised writing environment. The developer, Greg, is a true artisan who cares deeply about the app’s improvement. Well worth the subscription price.

Can I give Drafts 5 more stars? 6? 7?

–––––––––––––-––––––––––––––––

It deserves all the stars. Instant subscription.
