Tagging Searchbox Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Here's a script that will enter a term into the search box and remember the last five unique terms used.

The purpose of the script is to help with a workaround for tagging using the search box.

One of the problems with tagging is remembering what your tags are...
and typing them out.
This script attempts to assuage this annoyance.

I use this script in conjunction with Curt's script for tagging projects with No Actions & a modification of his script that tags actions with no context and for some of my own tagging conventions.

There are two scripts with this file...
Tagging Searchbox - This is a script you can read & run
Tagging Searchbox Run Only - a script that must be run by another application like LaunchBar or QuickSilver.

Bon Appetite!

One way to run applescripts is to use QuickSilver or LaunchBar.

I have my frequently used applescripts in a folder called Utility Scripts in my Documents folder. I include that folder in my launcher of choice... which for the moment is LaunchBar.

When I want to run this Tagging Search script...
apple+spacebar
tag
<enter>

The dialog box pops up,
I arrow down to make my choice
hit enter

and the search is performed.

One 'feature' of this script is to clear out the search field...
apple+spacebar
tag
<enter>
<esc>
And the search field is cleared.

(clicking on the cancel button in the list box will send an empty string to the OmniFocus search field)
