Paste any lines in Clipboard as new tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
In partial response to a posting under Applescript Requests:

I'd like it if I had a list, (as might come from an email)
1. Please do this
2. Please do that
3. Oh, and this other thing.

I'd like to select the list, hit a button and have three new actions created.
Here is a draft script which appends any lines of text in the clipboard as children of the project or task which is currently selected in Omnifocus.

i.e. you would need to tap CMD-C to capture text lines into the clipboard, and then run this script.

Not outstandingly useful, it has to be said, as Omnifocus does quite a good job of pasting text lines anyway :-)
