Clipping from gmail?
I used to add email items to omnifocus by sending them to [email][/email]. This worked fine as long as I was accessing my email using a client like Apple's Mail but my job is now requiring us to only access our email (gmail) through the browser interface (they want us to use chrome). Adding an item to OF from the mail list in gmail seems like it should be easy but I can't figure out how to do it. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

I don't have Chrome handy at the moment, but you should be able to use the OmniFocus clipping service. Select some text and then choose Chrome > Services > Send to OmniFocus (or set up a keyboard shortcut for that in system preferences)

Perfect - just what I was trying to remember - thanks!

The alternative is to use an AppleScript in something like Alfred to send the current Chrome tab to OmniFocus:

on alfred_script(q)
tell application "Google Chrome"
set theTitle to title of active tab of front window
set theURL to URL of active tab of front window

tell application "OmniFocus"
set theTask to theTitle
set theNote to theURL

tell quick entry
set NewTask to make new inbox task with properties {name:theTask, note:theNote}
select {NewTask}
end tell
end tell
end tell
end alfred_script
