Import Yojimbo Note

This little AppleScript for ThisService provides an alternative to Yojimbo’s own “Import Text” service. It creates and opens a new note item containing the currently selected text. Text style is not preserved and the note window that is opened allows you to promptly edit the note’s name or tags.

The unzipped service goes in ~/Library/Services/. You can assign a keyboard shortcut with Service Scrubber. Here is the actual AppleScript:

on process(_selection)
 tell application "Yojimbo"
  -- could display a dialog prompting user to name/tag note
  set _item to make new note item with contents _selection
  open location "x-yojimbo-item://" & (get id of _item)
 end tell
end process
