Importing OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language) files Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
First, thanks to all, especially RobTrew, for all the very useful work!

When I use OPML2OF on OPML files, all works fine except that any notes attached to projects or actions lose any 'internal returns' in the text, so that after running the droplet the text of the note appears in OF as a single 'block'.

When I open the exported OPML file in OmniOutliner to check before dropping the file on OPML2OF, the note appears correctly, with returns breaking it up into paragraphs as in the original, but those returns somehow 'get lost in translation'.

I've tried tweaking a couple of things in the script, but no luck. I did try going back to version 0.5.1 to see if it had anything to do with the change from the AppleScript 'read' command to the 'do shell script cat ', but the result is the same with both 0.5.1 and 0.6

Any ideas?
Typical. I find that I need to do this, search for a way, find this thread, and then find I am too late because mobile me has closed...
You're not too late, you just need to go somewhere else. Rob has transplanted the entire tree to
