iGTD to Omnifocus importer now has progress bar Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Importing a large iGTD file to Omnifocus through Applescript is a little slow so I have now wrapped the script as an app in Applescript Studio and added a progress bar.

The main window also displays the name of the action or project which is currently being imported, and the SQL which was submitted to Sqlite3 to get it.

The new version of the importer is at:

Thanks for this excellent little application.
I am unclear as to how to get this work. I try to run the application but nothing happens. It starts to open and then just closes. Can someone help explain what I'm doing wrong?
If you have iGTD installed on your system the app should display a dialog asking whether you want to import your iGTD data to Omnifocus.

I have sent you a private message to suggest some steps.

Please note that the Applescript Studio version, with the progress bar, appears to need OS X 10.4

Anyone using an earlier version of OS X may need to use the plain Applescript version, which has no progress indicators, and thus requires a little patience (the import process is slow).

Both versions are at:

I have iGTD 2 running on 10.4 and this script also starts and ends with no indication it has done anything...

I downloaded the regular raw applescript and it ran...

Thanks, Lee

Thanks for the feedback - there may be some dependency that I am overlooking - has anyone run the progress bar version successfully on their system ?

Also just tried it and nothing happened, just opens and then closes. Older version works just fine.
This is great in that it helped me get all my iGTD tasks over with no problems except for one. Almost all my completed actions are duplicated. Some of them I want to keep for future use. Any suggestions? Any script people out there able to make something to remove duplicate actions?
A duplicate-eliminator could in principle be written ...

This is not a problem that has been reported by other users of the script. Were the duplicated actions repeating actions in iGTD ? Do they, for example, have the same text but different start/due dates ?
