I’ve a really simple action that I use to append the content of a draft to a markdown file on Dropbox. Until now, it has always been one line drafts. But from now on, it sometimes will be multi line drafts. And since I want to add the current date to each line, I need a way to iterate over the draft.
What I currently have in the action is nothing more than
and what I need is something like
where the action is related once for every line in the draft.
Try amending this example I put together.
It uses some script to split the draft up and prefix each line as you defined above. It concatenates them as it goes along and then sets a custom tag at the end.
A typical Dropbox append action then uses that tag to append to the file. You should modify this action for your own file… once you have a backup and have ensured this does what you want
Hope that helps.
It did, thanks! Just made a small modification since I don’t need the extra row after the last iteration.
Glad it helped.
After the last iteration, when you next run the action would it not append the first line of the second run to the last line of the first run; rather than to a new line after the last line of the first run?
