You can change your “Default List” in reminders, and then check the TaskPaper preference "Always use Reminders.app > Default List. If you do that then TaskPaper will only ever show the default list. It will also skip the list selection step when exporting reminders.
I’m aware of how that works. Not sure if I am a corner case but I do have more than one list that is relevant to TP. For example I have the following lists I keep reminders for tasks that I also keep in TP --> Chores, Bills, Yearly, LongTerm
My wish is that I can just select the lists that I would like to see in TP pop up.
If multiple list selection is not possible and only one list is provided as an option, can it be something other than the default list? Like designating a TaskPaper list that is not default in Reminders. Using Siri, the default list is the easiest way to add things without explicitly calling out a list to add to. The default list then turns into a sort of Inbox of reminders that don’t all need interaction with TP.
Again, I may be a corner case but I have seen similar setups of others who regularly use reminders.
Did you just type these items … Reminders app doesn’t really save an item until you remove the text cursor from the line that you are editing. So I think what’s happened is you typed items one, two, and three in reminders … but aren’t seeing “three”? If that’s the case remove focused from typing in item “three” and it should show up.
Ahh I see what you mean… so yeah I would first recommend just avoiding manually entering that extra space at the end. But I’ll update things in the future so that if you do have whitespace at the end already TaskPaper won’t insert that extra space when adding a tag. This change will come in 3.7 though, 3.6 is already submitted to Apple.
I’ve played with 3.6 some recently, and I really like both the reminders export and the date popup. Here are a couple of wishlist items for those features - apologies if they’ve been mentioned elsewhere before.
The Reminders export adds a due date based on the content of a @due tag, which is really handy. At least in my usage scenario, it would be even more helpful to have the export add the current date as a due date for tasks with the @today tag. To keep the Reminders list manageable, I wouldn’t want to send tasks over there unless they needed short-term attention, which is what the @today tag gets used for.
Would it be possible for the Insert Date command to evaluate whether the cursor is positioned in a tag, and if so, return the date string enclosed in parentheses?
I won’t be changing things for 3.6. That will be released pretty much in current state. Going forward I might look into your idea, but it requires extra time/work of course. I expect I’ll probably work on something else first, and see what kind of border feedback I get on the reminders feature in the first place.
