THOUGHTASYLUM - WRITING ACTION GROUP INSTRUCTIONS

Welcome to the ThoughtAsylum - Writing Action Group. It may well be a little different to other action groups that you may have used, so please do read these instructions.

Quick Start: MUST DO!

First of all, before you use any this action group, you must ensure that you have downloaded the core ThoughtAsylum Action Group. This action group contains several pre-requisite actions to make full use of this action group.

About This Action Group

The writing action group contains actions that are designed to help you with writing content in Drafts. They allow you to insert, modify and remove content in a wide variety of ways. This action group should be useful to everyone who uses Drafts.

Action Groups in the ThoughtAsylum Action Group Suite

The following action groups are available in the ThoughtAsylum Action Group Suite (TAAGS):

  • ThoughtAsylum: Core action group required by the other group; essential for all Drafts users using these action groups.
  • ThoughtAsylum - Writing: Actions to help you create content; useful for all Drafts users.
  • ThoughtAsylum - Management: Actions to help you manage your drafts; useful for all Drafts users.
  • ThoughtAsylum - Export/Import/Share: Actions to help you share and import content; useful for all Drafts users.
  • ThoughtAsylum - Trove: Actions to help you work with and control the Drafts app; useful for all Drafts users.
  • ThoughtAsylum - Tasks & Lists: Actions to help you manage your tasks and checklists in Drafts; useful for all Drafts users.
  • ThoughtAsylum - Power User: For advanced users wanting to script and extend Drafts’ capabilities.

Legal Stuff & Coffee

This action group and the library are of course entirely free for you to use, though full details of licensing, including the licensing for some referenced code libraries and code are available on the TADpoLe Library site.

However, some people do like to give back, and so if you do find this action group and the TADpoLe library useful, you can donate to my coffee fund. I enjoy working when I can from coffee shops where I live (York, UK), and many of my best ideas and results have likely been fuelled by caffeine.
