About QuickCursor Altough I didn’t use QuickCursor because it was already unavailable due OSX sandbox, I find myself every now and then needing something like it. Overview You start typing in one application (e.g. a forum post, an email or a script in Apple Editor) then you realize you need a better editor or just want to type using your default text editor. The common thing to do is select the text, copy it to the clipboard, open the text Editor, start a New Document then paste the content. After done you have to select the text, copy it to the clipboard then bring the initial application and finally paste the new content. It’s not that hard but it can be faster... Usage in the initial application optionally select some text bring Alfred and type the keyword editwith now select your text editor: just start typing to find it and hit return key the editor will be opened with the text you have selected initially or blank if there was no text initially after writing, bring Alfred and type the keyword pasteback (the workflow will select the text automatically) the previous application will be displayed and the text will be pasted back In addition, the workflow saves the last used text editor so you can easily use it with a hotkey: Optionally select text in the initial application Hit the Edit with hotkey labeled “Copy” (the first one in the workflow) After writing hit the second hotkey named “Paste Back”. Done. You can also utilize the keyword pastebbcode so you can convert markdown into BBCode and then paste to the initial application. It can be very handy if you'd like to write a forum post with your Markdown text editor. The conversion is based on Markdown to BBCode workflow. Check the supported Markdown syntax in the workflow help (keyword editwith?).

Textwell Workflow This workflow is for working with the [Textwell](http://sociomedia.com/textwell/) program for the Mac. It currently give a command for opening it quickly, tw:front. It also has: tw:edit This copies the selected text and pastes it into TextWell. It also saves the name of the application that the text was copied from. tw:paste This copies what is in TextWell and pastes it back into the application that the text was copied from. There are hotkeys setup for the last two commands as well: tw:edit and tw:paste. You have to assign the hotkeys yourself. This gives similar feature as QuickCursor, though I have never used that application. I am exploring more ways to extend this workflow. Keep an eye on it!
