Yojimbo Export with Comment Tags

In response to this query, I wrote a script which allows Yojimbo items to be exported with their tags preserved as Spotlight comments. I don’t really use Spotlight, so I’m not sure if the comment format is ideal, but it works fine for a first draft.

Now updated for compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5.

Download ExportwithCommentTags.scpt.zip 1.2 4k

Put the script in ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Yojimbo, select some items, and choose “Export with Comment Tags” from your script menu.

You are amazing! I haven’t had a chance to test this yet, but I just posted to the yojimbo mailing list and boom!
