Re: Applescript: Get text contents of text note

2008-01-27 Thread Patrick Gilmour

Jim,

Thanks for pointing me to that - very comprehensive.

If I ever finish cobbling together this current script I'll post it  
here. I'm exporting a list of text items (with carriage returns in the  
text) as a .csv file to print, repurpose etc.


Cheers,

Pat

I expect what I'm trying to do is very simple - I want to get the  
text contents of a text note into an AppleScript variable. When I  
use the following code, however, it gives me the note id and not  
the text stored in it.


set theDef to contents of item i of myTargets
(* where myTargets is a list of items *)

I guess it's protecting me from trying to get rich text into a text  
string. So is there some way of doing this? I just need the text  
from the note in the variable.


Rather than repeat myself :-)...

Re: Attach a file?

Oh, one other thing.  If the email with your registration code or file
lists an URL where you can automatically retrieve the file if it's
lost, that's another good thing to put in your Yojimbo note.

Re: Attach a file?

2008-01-27 Thread TjL
I realize some folks might resent a suggestion of a non-Yojimbo answer
for this but I offer it only because it has been such a help to me.

Yes, I too would like some increased flexibility for licenses, as I've
gotten not just files, but now an image file (1Password).

Before I used Yojimbo for this I had another way of keeping track of
them.  I created an email account (IMAP) and whenever I got a new
license code, I forwarded the message to that email address.  When I
was setting up a new computer or hard drive or whatever, I could
easily get the codes via webmail or by pointing my mail client at the
IMAP account.  Since it was IMAP (not POP3) I didn't worry about the
messages getting removed from the server.

Now I have a GMail account and have a special label I use for
registration codes.

This was especially handy when I was reinstalling software and tried
to launch Yojimbo only to be told that my Yojimbo demo had expired --
so I couldn't get my Yojimbo license code out of my Yojimbo database.

For what it's worth, I find that a little effort on the front end
(label it / forward it AND add it to Yojimbo) helps a lot.

Now that some of them are files instead of codes, I add a Serial
Number in Yojimbo which says See GMail

Oh, and just for completeness, I keep those license-code-files in
~/Documents/License Codes/ which is backed up to iDisk :-)

Why do WebArchives take so long to load?

2008-01-27 Thread TjL
I made a web archive of this page:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/06/magazine/06wwln-medium-t.html?_r=3oref=sloginpagewanted=printoref=sloginoref=slogin

which is just text, but it takes a long time to load into Yojimbo when
I am going through my library.

Is it trying to pull data from the network?  How can I tell Yojimbo
Just save it for offline use?

I've started using copy/paste instead of webarchives.  That seems to
be a lot faster to load, but it's not as convenient to drop quickly
into Yojimbo.
