I have lots of very large files that look like this:
I’m new to AppleScript and I can’t figure out how to move the location information into the note of the row above. It doesn’t look like I can use preceding sibling. Whenever I try, it operates on ALL preceding siblings at once. I haven’t had any success with things like currentRow - 1 either. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
You can try this. As always best to test on a sample doc first.
tell application id “OOut”
set d to document 1
tell d to repeat with i from (count children) to 1 by -1
tell child i
if topic contains “LOCATION:” then
set d’s child (i - 1)'s note to topic
I really appreciate the suggestion, SGIII, and I apologize for not checking the forum sooner. Unfortunately, your code doesn’t run in OS X 10.11.4 as is. It will run if I change the first line to tell front document of application "OmniOutliner Pro" but will crash at line two with the following error:
“OmniOutliner Pro got an error: Can’t get document 1 of document 1.”
Did you mean row 1? After setting it to row 1 it doesn’t crash but it doesn’t do anything else either.
