Copy OmniFocus selection in FoldingText format Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I find that I am spending an increasing proportion of my time using the FoldingText plain text outliner, and often use it to gather thoughts to outline and edit projects before committing them to OmniFocus.

I sometimes also find that I want to pull material out of OmniFocus into FoldingText.

Here is a first draft of a script OmniFocusCopyAs.scpt which copies the OF selection in FoldingText Markdown format, encoding the OF context, start/due/done dates, duration, and flagged status as FoldingText @key(value) tags.

(It includes the full path of the selected material, up through any nesting folders, and adds a FoldingText .todo mode tag to project level nodes).

Confirmation of the copy is given by Growl, if installed. There is an essentially identical companion script: OmniFocusSaveAsFoldingText.scpt

Rob, between you and a few others on Twitter, I want to say thanks for all the effort and sharing you do with your OmniFocus scripts.
Kind of you - just working drafts which I sketch for my own use - mainly intended as illustrative, and as encouragements to others to learn some scripting.

( It's always helpful to get suggestions and bug reports though I won't always have time to respond to them :-)
