This Drafts 5 action imports a TaskPaper-formatted Draft into OmniOutliner. The big deal is that it handles notes that are not part of the outline (see “pen, pencil and paper” or “rule of thumb…” below)
So starting with this text:
- Choose location.
- Buy basic garden tools.
- Nurture the garden.
A rule of thumb for watering the plants is one inch of water per week during the growing season.
Write a book:
- Establish my writing space.
- Assemble my writing tools.
Pen, pencil and paper.
“Taskpaper” is just a way of describing it or that description could be dropped if it’s more confusing than helpful. The point is specifically for the non-outline elements (see “rule of thumb” or “pen, pencil and paper” above). I had been hoping for a way to get these sections into my OmniOutline under what they call “notes”—elements included underneath the outline elements but not technically children.
(In my so-far-unreleased code that turns Markdown into PowerPoint I do something similar: Turn notes into slide notes. Only mine aren’t indented - though I can see why you’d aesthetically do that. Actually, in filterCSV I could probably support this format and make the notes literally node notes for iThoughts mind maps.)
