Drag & drop or copy to OmniOutliner
What if you want to make a multi-line thread (project) drag and drop, or copy to an OmniOutliner file?

I tried this with my alpha version of OF, but only the thread's first line was pasted on OO; sub-projects, tasks weren't copied.

This is very important to me, for I sometimes put and organize my day-to-day ideas (not always tasks to "do") on my to-do list and then, settle them to an OO file. I could this with kGTD, but with OF? Any ideas?

Thank you.

I have also found myself wanting to export nested paragraphs to Omnioutliner.

If an Omnioutliner-compatible clipboard is more or less out of reach perhaps an OPML export ?

Or should we just unroll some Applescript duct-tape for the time being ?

Duct tape already applied.
