I made a workflow to search the Ulysses database for the new Ulysses III. This feature is missing from the app itself (for now) so I put together this workflow to get around that. The workflow simply adds search scopes for Ulysses' "sheet" and "group" filetypes. As a bonus, there's also an "Open in Ulysses" File Action included with the workflow. It works on .txt and .rtf documents, which will come into Ulysses parsed as Markdown. Read more on my site or download Search Ulysses 3.alfredworkflow now.
Need a quick place to write up some text that you won't need to save? Need a slightly more persistent clipboard? Don't want to bother opening up a text editor? Already have your browser open? Download Chrome Notepad from Packal. Just type "cn"; and you'll see a new tab open in Chrome that will give you a styled scratchpad. Right now it's only Chrome (I wrote this quickly for myself not in the most efficient way), but it can be expanded to other browsers.
