Export from THINGS to OmniFocus - does not work on Lion
 
Hi,

Iīm trying to move my data from Things, but the script failed after running for hours.

[QUOTE]AppleScript Error
OmniFocus got an error: Canīt get document 1. Invalid index.[/QUOTE]

Not sure if itīs a Lion/OmniFocus issue or perhaps my Things database.xml is to big?

I found an other post in the forum addressing the same error message by avoiding the index. Would it be possible to patch the script to avoid the error here also, dear robinfrancistrew? :)

Cheers,
Martins

I have amended ver 2 to reference the [I]default document[/I] rather than the [I]front document[/I] in case young Lion (the cub still seems quite wobbly on its feet) had OmniFocus in some state in which an open document couldn't be referenced.

Hi, the link given doesn't work. Might you have another one ? Thanks.

I'm afraid I retired this script – I hadn't used it myself for some time, and it may well not have kept up with developments on the 'Things' side. In any case users were reporting errors, and one user who did think of taking it over and putting it on Github very understandably found that life was getting too busy.

It might be worth asking Omni support whether they are aware of alternative importers.

Good luck !
