Action

Cut Task and Prepend at Header

Posted by @derekvan, Last update 28 days ago

This action takes a task-formatted text and notes, cuts it, and pastes at the selected header.

e.g.,

  • the task
  • the task and a note > note > more note

put the cursor on the line of the task you want and invoke the action. Will grab the whole line of the task as well as any notes below.

Requires two libraries to be installed:

TAD Core: https://actions.getdrafts.com/g/1aM
MGChecklist: https://mattgemmell.com/mgchecklistprompt-docs/
