Importing a txt file "to-do" list into Inbox Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
New and enthusiastic user here. Hello, all!

I think I understand the basic GTD process. Read the book, watched the videos.

First, I need to enter my projects and tasks into my Inbox.

Pre-OF, over the last year, I have kept my To Do list as a text file with one To DO per line. I now have about 600 lines - each line a soon-to-be action or project.

Is there some way I can import this text file into my Inbox??
It's a snap. Open your text file in TextEdit. Select the whole block of lines. Now go to OmniFocus, open the Inbox, click on the little black dot at the left side of a line, and paste. You should get an action for each line in your text file. Now you can edit them into projects as appropriate, assign contexts, etc.
