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

Re: Yojimbo Notes

2008-01-28 Thread Patrick Woolsey
John Stephens [EMAIL PROTECTED] sez:

[...]
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.


(FWIW, since I often need to 'paste plain text' in different apps, I've set
up a Keyboard Maestro action mapped to Cmd-Shift-V, but there are plenty of
other ways to skin the same beast :-), e.g. Plain Clip.app, probably
QuickSilver or LaunchBar, or any of the autotyper tools like TextExpander
or TypeIt4Me with a plain-text shortcut for the clipboard contents.)
