The Share action step opens an iOS system share sheet, which can be used to share content though iOS action and sharing extensions provided by other apps as well as iOS.
The only value to configure on a Share step is the "Share content" which is a template for the text to use in to share. This value defaults to the Drafts "[[draft]]" tag, which is the entire content of the draft, but you can create multiple actions with Share steps with different templates to add special text – such as automatically appended Emoji characters, as well.
Share steps open Drafts to wide variety of integrations provided in iOS.
Is it possible to share a Markdown version of a draft using the iOS share action?
You can convert the output to Markdown HTML by wrapping the "[[draft]]" tag in double percent signs, like:
This will output HTML. Not sure if that's what you want. You cannot get a rendered Rich Text representation in a Share sheet, if that's is what you are asking for.
Thanks! I'm trying to get a Markdown version of a draft sent to OneNote. Was trying to 'make it work' without true integration support.
Is OneNote integration something you're planning on supporting?
I have the same question as the original poster - formatting the note in Markdown is great, but only if I can enjoy it in that form. How do I export the Formatted Note without the code?
You can select an copy text from an HTML preview window and it will paste into other apps as rich text where supported.
