Ulysses Quick Tip ⚡️

A useful pre-publish check

We know Ulysses is a great tool for writing blog posts whatever platform they’re destined for, but the app makes publishing to Medium and WordPress particularly easy: just click the share button and select publish. Kinda makes sense when you think about it.

The publishing function opens a new pane containing a preview of your article – and this comes in really handy for a pre-publishing check.

Most blog posts link out to content on other sites. It’s important to check every one of these links to make sure they point to the right page. To do this before publishing your article, simply click the links in Ulysses’ publishing preview pane, and they’ll open up in your default browser. Any that don’t work as they should can be corrected within Ulysses before the draft is sent to the blogging platform. I think it’s easier and better to make such corrections at this stage, rather than upload that draft and then have to make changes.

Although, if you’re anything like me, you’ll still want to changes the text in the blog editor after you’ve uploaded that draft… 🤦🏼‍♂️
