I thought this post would be better fit for this OmniFocus Extras forum, so pardon the double forum post.

This lets me prepend text to the start of all the select actions. So I am trying to not only prepend a new action priority at the start of a task but also remove the old priority quickly on all the selected actions.

Whpalmer4 helped me with this before.

Code:
--Prepend text to select actions
--http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?p=101754#post101754

tell application "System Events" to key code 49 --Spacebar which causes OmniFocus to duplicate task and mark as complete
delay 0.3
property prependText : "[Dropped] "

tell application "OmniFocus"
	tell front document
		tell document window 1
			set theActions to selected trees of content
			set theActionCount to count of theActions
			if (theActionCount > 0) then
				
				--set actionPrepend to prependText
				
				repeat with actionCycle from 1 to theActionCount
					set actionName to value of (item actionCycle of theActions)
					set name of actionName to prependText & name of actionName
				end repeat
			else
				display alert "No content selected!"
			end if
		end tell
	end tell
end tell

Here is the code that works on one action at a time

Code:
(*
	try
		set modifierkeysPressed to true
		repeat while modifierkeysPressed
			set modifierkeysPressed to (do shell script "/Library/Scripts/checkModifierKeys") is not "0"
			delay 0.2
		end repeat
		
	on error
		display dialog "You do not have 'checkModifierKeys' installed. "
	end try
*)

tell application "OmniFocus" to activate

--this makes it jump to the next field if it is in a field or go to the first one to clear it out so we always start from the action name.
delay 0.4
tell application "System Events" to key code 48 --Tab 
delay 0.2
tell application "System Events" to key code 53 --Esacape
delay 0.2
tell application "System Events" to key code 48 --Tab
delay 0.2
tell application "System Events" to keystroke "c" using {command down} -- Copy to clipboard





--http://macscripter.net/viewtopic.php?pid=163971#p163971


--set omniFocusAction to the clipboard
delay 0.3

set _text to (the clipboard)
do shell script "<<<" & quoted form of _text & " sed -E 's/\\{[0-9]+\\} //'"

set the clipboard to the result


(* Old way but works
			set theBarNumber to the clipboard
			set the clipboard to (characters 1 through 5 of theBarNumber) as text
		*)

tell application "System Events" to keystroke "v" using {command down}
tell application "System Events" to key code 126 using {option down} --Up arrow
tell application "System Events" to keystroke "{1} "
I am trying to combine them to something like this but am stuck!

Code:
--Prepend text to select actions
--http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?p=101754#post101754

tell application "System Events" to key code 49 --Spacebar which causes OmniFocus to duplicate task and mark as complete
delay 0.3
property prependText : "{2} "

tell application "OmniFocus"
	tell front document
		tell document window 1
			set theActions to selected trees of content
			set theActionCount to count of theActions
			if (theActionCount > 0) then
				
				set actionPrepend to prependText
				
				repeat with actionCycle from 1 to theActionCount
					set actionName to value of (item actionCycle of theActions)
					
					--I need to some how get the action name fist and then do the shellscritp and replace the action name with the result
					set name of actionName to actionPrepend & name of actionName --I don't quite understand how this line is working
					do shell script "<<<" & quoted form of actionName & " sed -E 's/\\{[0-9]+\\} //'"
					
					--set the result to theNewPriority
								
					
					
				end repeat
			else
				display alert "No content selected!"
			end if
		end tell
	end tell
end tell
