Like Merlin Mann*, I have a series of “running files” to which I’m constantly adding content:
- runx movies.txt
- runx restaurants.txt
- runx gift ideas.txt
- runx books I’ve read.txt
I could use the “Append to Running Lists” action, but I’d like prefer to have separate files that I can also access from my Mac.
I could set up an action for each of these (variations on “Append to iCloud Journal”: “Append to Movie List”, “Append to Gift Idea List”, etc.), but it would be great if I could have one action that prompts me with buttons for each of them (about 10, say), so that I can pick the destination and have the [[draft]] text appended to the corresponding file in the background.
Any ideas for how to write an Action that allows the pathname/filename to be determined from a list of options?
