Add to List

Posted by splunsford, Last updated: 2018-05-27 15:46:02 UTC

Prompts the user to select from drafts tagged “lists” and appends the contents of the current draft to that list, adding bullets/numbers/checkboxes to each line and matching the list type of the selected draft. Also allows creating and naming a new list of any type. Default bullet style and “lists” tag can be customized.
