Applescripting Text Attachments? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I'm a newbie to Omnioutliner 3, using the Beta 4 release. I had a question about manipulating Text Attachments with Applescript. First off, I'm assuming that a Text Attachment is the button displayed in the screen grab below:

When I try to "explore" these in Script Debugger or "get" them via a script, I get some variant of:

Anyone know whether I'm having trouble with OO3, my knowledge of Applescripting and OO3, and/or Script Debugger and OO3?

Many thanks, Charles

How about sending along your code so we can have a look?
Well, here you go:

tell application "OmniOutliner Professional"
get file name of text attachment 1 of text 1 of cell 2 of leaf 1 of document 1
end tell

Thanks for your interest!

Hi Rob-

Thanks for the pointer, but I think OmniOutliner handles things a bit differently. AFAIK, there isn't any "link" attribute to a style in OO3.

I have gotten a bit farther on my own, very crude, this snippet will write the text, but the file name isn't recognized:

set f1 to POSIX file "/Users/cturner/Desktop/212 project list.txt"

tell application "OmniOutliner Professional"
  tell document 1
    tell row 1
      tell cell 2
        tell text 1
          make new text attachment with properties {file name:f1, text:"deadbeef"} at after word 5
        end tell
      end tell
    end tell
  end tell
end tell
So, still looking for knowledge!

Thanks again, Charles
Sorry, OmniOutliner 3 doesn't support scripting attachments yet; we plan to add that support for OmniOutliner 4 (based on the work we've done in OmniFocus).
