Omitting attachments with Clip-O-Tron
I create a large number of action items from emails that have document attachments. I don't need the documents in my OF database. I would be happy with either a simple link or nothing at all, as I routinely go back to the original email when I work on the action item.

Is there a way to not copy the attachments when sending the email to OF?

Instead of selecting the email from Apple Mail's list view, select some bit of text from [I]inside[/I] the message (e.g. the subject line or some bit of text from the message body). Then press your clipping shortcut and a new action will be created in OmniFocus with just the selected text and a link back to the original message -- no attachments, no full text.

Hope this helps.
