Split text block to new tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I often paste in a list from somewhere else and then find myself wanting to explode that list of a single text block several line long into separate tasks.

What's the easiest way to do this?

I've only found that I can cut everything except the top line then paste that into a new task and continue down in a new fashion which seems fairly slow. There has to be a better way!
Best way is to paste it so that it makes separate items. Instead of clicking in the row and then pasting, click on a row handle, then paste, and you should get a separate action for each line on the clipboard.
Brilliant! That's exactly what I needed, many thanks for the quick reply.
