Applescript to collect text from selection Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Here's an AppleScript I use to collect all the text from multiple simple objects. This is handy when I've built up a sitemap as a diagram, and want to paste just the text into a spreadsheet.

It assumes the objects are arranged layer-wise in the order you want them.

tell application id "OGfl"
	tell front window
		set theSelection to the selection
		set numItems to length of theSelection
		set theText to ""
		repeat with itemNo from 1 to numItems
			set theText to theText & (text of item (numItems - itemNo + 1) of theSelection) & return
		end repeat
	end tell
	display dialog "The text:" default answer (theText as text)
end tell
