OmniFocus to Mind Map Help Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hey all, hoping you can help me improve a workflow for exporting my entire OF library to OPML in order to import it into iThoughts HD.

This script does a nice job of it, but it requires OmniOutliner Pro and includes completed and dropped projects:

I've found this very helpful for doing my monthly review. It adds a visual aspect to the process and am trying to do whatever I can to improve upon it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can find more details about it on my site here:
There is a piece of code in this post which bypasses OO3 and exports directly to OPML. May be worth experimenting with.

The main issue is the selection of the subset of objects to be exported (you mention my entire OF library but it sounds as if this means filtering out projects that have been dropped (but not those that are on hold ?), possibly contexts that that are on hold, and projects (and perhaps actions ?) that have been completed.

This could either be done by replacing the manual selection function SelectedInOF() with something based on a where clause (try experimenting with Where in OF) at or by designing a perspective which gives the subset of data which you want, manually selecting it, and using something like the code linked to above.

I have added an option to the OPML export code (now amended to work properly with Tree and iThoughtsHD etc) to bypass manual selection and export all active projects and folders.
Still very slow, mostly because of character encoding - I'll explore something faster if I get some time at the weekend.

At the top of the code edit:
property pManualSelection : true
changing the value to false, (i.e. all active folders and projects, regardless of what is selected) then run the code and let it cook for a few minutes ...
