    let tasks = '';
    let cleaned_title = '';
    let indent_level = 0;
    let task_indentifier = '[ ]';
    
    
    function createTaskpaper(line, index) {
    
    	if (line.startsWith('# ')) {
    		cleaned_title = line.replace('# ', '')
    		tasks += cleaned_title + "\n"
    		indent_level = 0
    	}
    	
    	if (line.startsWith('## ')) {
    		tasks += "\t" + line.replace('## ', '').trim() + "\n"
    		indent_level = 1
    	}
    	
    	if (line.startsWith('### ')) {
    		tasks += "\t\t" + line.replace('### ', '').trim() + "\n"
    		indent_level = 2
    	}
    	
    	if (line.startsWith('#### ')) {
    		tasks += "\t\t\t" + line.replace('#### ', '').trim() + "\n"
    		indent_level = 3
    	}
    	
    	if (line.startsWith('[ ]')) {
    		tasks += "\t".repeat(indent_level + 1) + line.replace(task_indentifier, '').trim() + "\n";
    	}
    }
    
    draft.content.split("\n").forEach(createTaskpaper);
    draft.setTemplateTag("tasks", tasks.trim());
    draft.setTemplateTag("cleanedtitle", cleaned_title);
