Lately, I have been preparing my texts in @drafts and then publishing or sending them in any way. It's a pity that it didn't work out this way to answer toots in #Mastodon. I wrote another small action that allows you to respond to toots. Just save the link to the toot in the first line of the #draft (title) and write the answer in its body.

I was looking for how to indent list items in @drafts and found out there was a super easy way to do it using an action (of course). Just need to change the outdent and indent actions in the Editing group from cmd+[ and cmd+] to tab and shift tab.

I've switched over from Pinboard to keeping all my web bookmarks in Drafts (go figure 😁).

I didn't want to lose my history, so I wrote an action to import my pin history from a Pinboard backup file. Possibly useful, at least as a starting point, for others...
