We’re upgrading iA Writer’s integration with Apple Shortcuts today. With 18 built-in actions and 22 ready-made shortcuts, iA Writer 7.1 makes it easy to automate common tasks.

Shortcuts is a powerful automation tool. It allows you to get tasks done by combining actions—the building blocks of a shortcut—into a series of steps—a shortcut—that can be launched with one tap, or by asking Siri. Shortcuts can combine actions from multiple apps and perform them in background. This saves time and helps you focus on writing by avoiding repetitive busywork.

We’ve prepared a few practical shortcuts to show what’s possible. To use them, you’ll need iA Writer 7.1 on macOS 13 Ventura, iPadOS 16.1, or iOS 16.1.
