Now that Evernote has released an update that plays well with AppleScript, wondering if anyone has tried their hand at crafting a script to link EN and OF together. Would love to be able to automate linking OF tasks with EN for reference materials.:)

I wish I knew how to code. Must say that I will SO truly appreciate whomever can script 'pulling selected text from an EN note into de OF inbox with the title being the name of the selecte text'.

Here is the context. I take notes in Omni Focus and when ever I create a task (to do) with in my notes, I highlight the line and through a script, send it to OF's inbox. As I am looking to migrate into EverNote, when I highlight a line of text within a note, and clipp-it with Clip-o-tron, the subject is always the same for all texts (something laong the lines of Evernote Note...). So I have to edit the title before I process the task.

I assume this should be very easy? Anyone with this need willing to code it? Thanks so much...
 
The OmniFocus clipping service handles this just fine. Grabs the title of the note, plus the beginning of the text, into the quick-entry window. Super easy.
 
My issue, is that the subject of the note, is not the highlighted text, thus if I clip 5 notes from the same notes (for example 5 action items I took), they all have the same description in OF, and only by reading the notes I can distinguish them. Any way to fox this changing the script? Please see attached file. Thanks so much for your help.

Sorry for the confusion here - the clip-o-tron offers makes the best guess it can about what the title of the action should be, but it also selects the text so you can easily type in something else if you'd prefer a different name.

Am I correct in thinking that you want to select a bunch of items, and have them clipped and turned into several individual items as one operation?

You are correct. This works great from Omni Outliner. But as I use more and more Evernote, I want to be able to highlight all my actions items and turn them into individual tasks in my inbox. If they all have the same name, I have to re-type in each the content that it's in the notes. If it's one it's not big deal, but when you have 10 or 15 actions and this happens several times a day, it no longer works as a solution.

Thanks.
