Fun with Find and Replace Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I am trying to learn how to use find/replace more effectively within OmniFocus.

I am setting up 10 action groups with the same basic information:

ask @@ to help with the event
-waiting for @@ to respond back
-send @@ materials
- etc, etc @@
I would like to duplicate the above action group ten times using command+D and then select one action group, find @@ and replace with a person's name and then repeat the process for the next action group.

Unfortunately, it seems like find/replace is global and not just for the selected text. Is there a way of finding/replacing just the selected text.

Curt Clifton has an excellent script called "Populate Template Placeholders" found here, but I'm looking for something that I can do on the fly.

Any thoughts?
