Workflowy convert word to tag

By April 7, 2017workflowy

The more I use Workflowy, the more I realize how powerful it is to simply take as many notes throughout the day as possible, in log or journal form, and add as much meta data (#tags and @mentions) to each note as possible as I type it out. This makes it much easier to find what I am looking for later by clicking on tags to filter.

Phrase Express Makes It Quick

I often find myself typing a word before I realize that it should be a tag. So, instead of hitting backspace a few times and starting over, I have a phrase express script that allows me to finish typing the word, then convert it to a hashtag with a simple Shift + Space.

Here’s what the script should look like:

{#CTRL {#LEFT}}#{#CTRL {#RIGHT}}{#SPACE}
