I spent a while this morning cleaning up my Drafts actions and making it a little more focused for regular use. It has always been on my list of things to understand better, but there’s so. much. stuff. to absorb right up front.

As it is, a ton of the actions it provides are in your face up front and you spend a lot of time trying to find your way back to things if you don’t immediately adopt its action search tool or customize heavily.
