I’m new to this, so please forgive my newness. I’m trying to get Editorial to open a specific taskpaper doc to run. If I open it in Editorial myself it runs fine, but I’d like to bypass the part where I open the taskpaper doc and get Editorial to open it as part of the script. Then I can get Workflow to automate everything and have a nice icon sitting in the home screen to add the project to OmniFocus. Is this possible?
Why not try adding the taskpaper data to the Workflow itself and add it from there? That way you don’t need editorial in the mix at all.
I recommend either what Joe said, or storing your templates in Drafts 5 and using a workflow or action to parse it into OF. @rosemary has an excellent action group for Drafts 5 that assists in doing this.
I will try to set it up in Drafts, but part of Editorial’s workflows is a Python script. I’m trying to get the Editorial workflow to open the *.taskpaper file but haven’t succeeded with the correct open statement in the Python snippet - I’m having trouble with the path part of the open statement.
I was able to get the Workflow app to open and use the *.taskpaper file but there are prompts for info in the file that Editorial recognizes but WorkFlow does not.
