This request probably cuts across several other threads, and it may in part be answered by the upcoming Mac Drafts release, but for what it’s worth here are my thoughts.
Like many, I exist in a multi-platform world. My days are spent on a PC at work. At home, I have a Mac and everywhere in between I have iPhone and iPad (iOS)
Drafts is my tool of choice (to a certain degree) on iOS devices, but unfortunately, I cannot rely on it completely because the other 66% of my time are on unsupported platforms.
Now I appreciate Drafts is an iOS-based tool (currently), but for me, its major shortcoming is not being able to access files in shared locations that I may have created elsewhere.
Whilst Drafts allows me to save to and append to various Cloud services, I cannot see a way of opening and editing these files easily.
If I was able to use Drafts to save AND open files from OneDrive/DropBox/GoogleDrive etc, then I could use other tools on other platforms to carry on working. For example SublimeText on my PC.
Then open the file back up in Drafts and continue.
I’m no developer so maybe I have a simplistic view of the work and changes this would entail, but it appears to me that by adding this ability Drafts would be able to be used over a wider range of platforms and scenarios.
I fully understand that you would miss the automation and workflow features that make the Drafts app what it is, but the ability to work on files externally to Drafts and then read them back in would be invaluable.
At least to me
