Make items a ToDO

When I make note I have different styles to recognize the items.
an * = is for list item
an - = an action item
Is there a way to find/filter the action items and post them to a task manger (I use ToDOIST)

There are several actions in the directory that process notes for Todoist. You can probably tailor one of those if none are an exact fit for you.

The link below lists the Todoist actions.
