I use Drafts a lot as a starting place for text. Sometimes I send it to other locations, sometimes I just keep it in Drafts for quick reference.

I appreciate being able to download and install themes with different colors. However, I’d like to see a Drafts interface redo to look more modern and colorful, to fit with the look of macOS and iOS.

Same! My only experience when using workspaces is the inability to find notes hidden in other workspaces.

This episode inspired me to reignite my use of Drafts, after I let it fall by the wayside for the longest time. I’ve written about my experience recalibrating Drafts to be a useful app for my needs.

In the same boat (and city) as you, @Drewster!
I even set up my Apple Watch with a Drafts complication to minimise the friction. But then reverted to my Garmin for exercise :roll_eyes:

But I see so many possibilities with Drafts that I need to dig into the details to make it work for me. And maybe wear the Apple Watch as my daily driver.

Thanks for that article! When I think of it, I use almost exclusively actions from one action group and only get to see the others when they are accidentally activated. I should follow your example.
On the other hand, there are all these nice actions/groups that I installed sometime and intend to try out one day. Which actually never happens …

@MacSparky mentioned in this episode about a workflow he uses in Drafts where it will find the tasks from a note, add it to Omnifocus, and then add the note to obsidian. Can anyone show me somewhere where that has been previously discussed/shared? I would love to be able to implement this into my Drafts workflow.

So I haven’t tried Reflex… like mentioned in the show by @ismh I have been using MacMediaKeyForwarder, which it seems the main developer has stopped working on but has been forked and updated recently: Releases · quentinlesceller/macmediakeyforwarder · GitHub

Just listened to this and am taking Greg’s advice on the subscription service. That is go monthly (@ $2.99) until it becomes a habit (or not). I wish I had stuck with it from years ago as now it seems such a beast! But I also just watched this and Tiago makes a lot of sense.
