Corrected a scoping bug and a formatting bug

Takes all drafts in the Inbox of a workspace called defined in the Template Tag “flashcard_workspace” and exports the contents to a CSV file “iCloud Drive/Drafts/”. The filename is defined in the Template Tag “flashcard_filename”.

The intention is for the first line in the Draft to be a question for Flash Cards. The second line will be empty. The third line will be the answer.

All questions in all drafts will appear in the first column of the CSV. All answers in all drafts will appear in the second column of the CSV. Once done, the user will be prompted to archive all the Drafts so that they don’t get picked up again. This can be skipped.

Example Draft:

What if…?

Ultron won

Outputs to a CSV file in the format

| What if…? | Ultron won |
