The sript handler failed
Error compiling handler script for <ScriptHandler:0x608000113170 com.omnigroup.OmniFocus.ScriptHandler.Mail_with_MailTags NSBundle </Applications/OmniFocus.app/Contents/PlugIns/BuiltInClippingHandlers.plugin> (not yet loaded)>: Expected end of line, etc. but found variable name
I have been having this issue as well, despite not having toyed at all with any scripts; it happens to me no matter where I try to clip from (Safari, Airmail, Preview, PDF Reader X, etc.). I emailed support with the news and haven’t heard anything.
The outcome, by the way, is that the OF app icon bounces in my dock, and the alert popup sticks around until I dismiss it. Then I find my new Inbox item with the selected text as the note, formatted and everything, but no task name of any kind.
I’d love it if the option from OF1 to clip either into the Inbox or into the Quick Entry window could be restored — it was an excellent way to save snippets from academic articles into their appropriate homes to be able to select the latter option.
I too have this problem and it’s a blocker (I may go back to OF1).
This is the full error, I get it when clipping in Mac Mail Version 7.2 (1874)
Error compiling handler script for <ScriptHandler:0x61000010e6a0 com.omnigroup.OmniFocus.ScriptHandler.Mail NSBundle </Applications/OmniFocus.app/Contents/PlugIns/BuiltInClippingHandlers.plugin> (not yet loaded)>: Can’t get note of MyTask. Access not allowed.
Once I click “ok” in OF on this modal, the Quick Entry box finishes rendering the message (although it doesn’t contain a message id URL back to the mail message).
I have a similar but different error. My error is for both Chrome and Safari clippings:
Error compiling handler script for <ScriptHandler:0x7fca53f40f60 com.omnigroup.OmniFocus.ScriptHandler.Safari NSBundle </Applications/OmniFocus.app/Contents/PlugIns/BuiltInClippingHandlers.plugin> (not yet loaded)>: Expected “,” but found “text”.
If I open up the scripts inside of AppleScript Editor, I see the same error when I click Compile. The odd thing is that after I receive that error, the popup is filled in with my selected text, so it appears to function despite getting prompted with the error.
I don’t have OmniFocus 1, but I had run it in the past. I’m a standard user.
But it shouldn’t be the case that a PRO license is required to use the Clippings function, which has always been standard and doesn’t require the user to write or import any scripts — right? I just updated my license to OmniFocus 2 (Standard) and I still am having this issue.
Scratch that. I just uninstalled the ‘second beta’ version I’d been running (with my license attached), and re-downloaded OF2 from the website. The clippings work perfectly now.
I had the same “Error compiling handler script” error. I installed v2 but I remembered I chose to keep both versions. I uninstalled both versions and reinstalled v2. My information is synced to the cloud.
Everything works now. Make sure you use an uninstaller that gets rid of all application support files. I use the App Sweep utility in Hazel.
