Escaping characters when using "parse tasks with transport text" Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello, everyone.

I am writing a script to record bills to be paid, their due date, and the amount. I was hoping to create a task that looked something like

"Pay gas bill of $120"

and then have the context and due date in the appropriate fields.

I've been exploring using an applescript with "parse tasks with transport text" to do this and keep running into the issue that the $120 in the above would actually be interpreted as 120 minutes.

Is there a way to escape the $ symbol?
