Re: Where is visual editor?

The GitHub web editor supports workflow files, but it has to be an existing file for it to be recognized. Creating a new file through the web interface doesn't work (yet). So simply open the workflow file you want to edit, click the pencil icon in the top right of that file and the editor will show up with syntax highlighting, autocomplete and such.

So that currently is not the case anymore or is it? with the workflow/.yml files theres seem to be no visual workflow editor anymore.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, as I understand, *.workflow files are old syntax, and *.yml is new, right? So is there plan to add visual editor to new syntax? It looks really great on pictures and actions landing itself, so would be great to have it.

Same problem here. The documentation is messy and not clear about this. You see the visual editor all over the place on the actions page, but when it is time to try it you don't find any reference about how or where.
