Easy way to convert note(s) to item(s)? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
If I have a task with an attached note is there an easy way to convert the contents of the note to sub-items of the task?

For example:

Task X with attached note that includes text A, B, C, D

Short of just cutting and pasting is there any easy way to convert this to:

Task X
sub item A
sub item B
sub item C
sub item D

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Well, it's cutting and pasting, but it's easy cutting and pasting!

Select the list of items to be turned into tasks
Edit->Copy (command-C)
Now click on the row handle of the desired parent (the dot at the left end)
Edit->Paste (command-V)
Edit->Outlining->Indent (command-])

Now you should have a new child action for each line in the selected region with a minimum of fuss.
Ah, perfect - I was missing that last step - many thanks!
