Apple on Wednesday issued a minor update to its Workflow App, adding a few new features and a number of bug fixes to the popular automation software.
A new action to apply image masks tops the release notes of workflow version 1.7.8, allowing users to cut an image into a desired shape. Current defaults include a rounded rectangle, ellipse and icon, though there is an option to create a Mask from a custom image.
The app also builds on its Thing interaction with an updated “Add things to do” action that features new fields for inputting data into the task manager. Items in the dictionary action can now be reordered, while the workflow URL scheme Has been updated to support opening other workflow. The latest workflow version also offers better text extraction from PDF files and improved drag and drop handling of items from the My workflows section.
A number of bugs were squashed with version 1.7.8 including multiple crash issues, authentication problems, file handling quirks and more. The updates also includes VoiceOver improvements and the usual state of performance enhancements and minor bug fixes.
The app, which allows users to cobble together powerful actions by tapping into backend integrations with other apps, received an Apple Design Award in 2015.
