Thank you, Patrick! Cmd-Shift-V would be a lot better than the  
default setup.


If there are any QS users out there who need this, here is how I got  
it to work:


   1: Invoke Quicksilver.
   2: Type CUR, select Current Application (Proxy Object).
   3: Tab, type MEN, select Menu Bar Items.
   4: Tab, press down arrow to drill into menu.
   5: Type PAS, select Paste and Match Style.
   6: Invoke QS Preferences (Cmd-,).
   7: Select Triggers Tab.
   8: Click the + sign and select HotKey.
The action pane appears containing the action.
   9: Verify action, and click Save.
  10: Select the new action in the Trigger column and set HotKey.

There's only one problem: the HotKey only works in the application  
that was Current when I set it (in this case Yojimbo). You can work  
around this by following the same steps with Mail.app active, or any  
other application you want, and QS will allow you to use the same  
HotKey. I even verified that the Scope of the HotKey in QS is set to  
Enabled in All Applications. I suspect it has something to do with  
what Proxy Object means to Quicksilver.


kind regards,
john

Try this for an easier (and perhaps more complete) way to do this that 
would work for every application:


1) Open QuickSilver's Trigger preferences
2) Click the + and select HotKey
3) Type a . (period) to enter text entry mode
4) Type: pbpaste | pbcopy
5) Tab to the Action field and select Run Command in Shell
6) Click Save and assign a trigger hotkey

This will strip all formatting from the text on the clipboard which 
allows it to pick up whatever formatting is present in your rich text 
document when you paste.


Cheers, Jim

Yojimbo Notes

2008-01-28 Thread John Stephens
I like storing my notes as plain text, and I also like having the  
option of linking things together, using tables, or other formatting  
if I need to. Yojimbo lets me do both, converting plain text to rich  
text on the fly if I choose to add a hyperlink or edit a table. Nice:  
I have plain text notes and rich text notes living side by side in  
perfect harmony.


My problem is when I paste formatted text into a plain text note.  
Doing this in TextEdit and other text editors I use begets plain  
text, which is what I want. In order to do this in Yojimbo, I have to  
press Shift-Alt-Command-V (Paste And Match Style), which may be  
Apple's punishment for trying to use keyboard commands. I'd like to  
get a behavior like what I have in TextEdit, where I can paste in  
text and remove the formatting. I couldn't find a preference pane  
that dealt with this. Any ideas?

Although there's no direct option to paste plain text, you can apply
Format - Remove Formatting subsequently to get the same effect.

Applescript for opening Yojimbo Notes in BBEdit

2007-12-19 Thread McGonegal Robert
Has anyone made an Applescript to open a Yojimbo note directly in  
BBEdit?


If not, would the proper procedure be to export the note to disk,  
open it in BBEdit and then have the Finder delete it from disk?

Getting the contents of the note to BBEdit (minus all 
formatting) is trivial, but any edits you make there will be 
lost, and not make it back to Yojimbo.


What are you trying to accomplish?

Basically? Using Yojimbo to store and retrieve text and code  
snippets. Yojimbo's RTF certainly isn't ideal for that but BBEdit  
having it's own database would be very useful.


With do shell script, textutil -convert HTML plus some fancy  
grep, it seems like it'd be possible to preserve what formatting is  
useful and strip the rest out. Run html2text.py at the end and it  
could even end up as Markdown, as another example.


but any edits you make there will be lost, and not make it back to  
Yojimbo.


I'm assuming a second Applescript would be needed to send info back  
to Yojimbo so that'd more properly be a separate topic. But I'm not  
experienced with Applescript so first things first, I thought I'd  
attempt something very trivial to start out.

Re: Sync Yojimbo notes to mobile phone

No, you are not.

There is currently no way of doing this. Mark/Space at

they want to sync to S60.


Move over there and fill out the forms, maybe we will get this somedays.

The more information I put into Yojimbo the more I feel the need to  
access it from my mobile. Webjimbo is not really an option for me  
because it does not work offline.


Am I the only one who feels this need?

Thanks for any hints!
