Starting an OF Automation on iOS without external keyboard

This point was not immediately clear to me.
After an automation plugin is added, you can find it in OF preferences --> automation section --> Configure Plug-Ins.

Keyboard based activation

When tapping a plugin for the Plugin Details, the specific action can be tapped, after which a new screen opens to define a keyboard shortcut.
These shortcuts seem to be dependent on the use of modifier keys (not part fo the standard on screen iOS keyboard). So these keyboard shortcuts are dependent on having an external keyboard attached (?).

Non keyboard based activation

The installed OF Automations are also available in the Share menu, when the shared input matches the input required for that specific OF Automation.


weird thing was for me the plugins appeared in the share sheet once I had defined a keyboard shortcut, before that they we absent and could not be called.
