Automatically convert normal text to an outline Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I was wondering if there's a way to take normal text and automatically break it into bullets in OO wherever there is a paragraph break.
This would be really useful because I often have to take text out of Word or from E-mails and copy them into OO, then go to the end of each paragraph and manually hit enter to break it into an outline before I can start manipulating it. But if there are paragraph breaks in the text already, I'm wondering if this could be done with a script (and is there one already out there?). Thanks!
If you paste text that contains paragraph breaks while in row selection mode, it will place each paragraph into its own row. Row selection mode is, well, when you're selecting rows and not entering text. You can push the esc key to toggle between text editing and row selection. Let me know if this isn't what you're looking for.
Hey, thanks Derek! I'm surprised I never stumbled on this, it's so simple. This'll save me a ton of time.
