Editorial Root Folder?
I used a shellista script to download a .zip file. I didn't know where it was stored in Editorial. I then checked the content of a particular directory and got a list of workflows. I also saw the zip. But where is it exactly? I also see other directories I created using a mkdir command.
How do I delete these files?
P.s. There were more workflow files than this above what I posted:

I use the scratchpad or a python script in a workflow to run short sequences of Python code to change and list directories, then delete files. I use
os.remove. It's not pythonistic but it gets the job done.
Is this what you mean?
Good tip, but where are these directories being stored? Could I access them by plugging my iPad to a laptop?

I'm not sure of all this, but here goes:
The iPad drive has a top directory with subdirectories and subsubdirectories and so on, just like a Linux or windows hard drive partition. Each app has one of these subdirectories as its 'root' directory, plus whatever subsubdirectories it creates in there (to store its local files).
I think that when you jailbreak an iPad you can have access to all of these directories.
However, for an unjailbroken iPad, iOS restricts what an app can do outside its 'root' directory. IOS is based around apps, not around files like most other operating systems. This is why you need to 'open in' a file to allow another app to use it. So, the idea of plugging an iPad into a PC, as an external drive, and seeing all the directories in the iPad is foreign to iOS. I think that when you do this, you actually see your photos. All this is for security, and I'm pleased that it works like this.
Maybe iTunes on a PC lets you see all directories, but I have never used this. Also, some iOS file-ttransfer apps let you see the app's file directory and any subdirectories on a PC. For example the app Documents uses WebDAV to present its directories on a PC, where you can read, copy and delete files on the iPad. But only Document's files.
Ahh, Okay. Thank you. I think there is a desktop application that lets me see all contents of an app on an Ipad. Perhaps I can delete it using that..
