Add to List

This action adds the content of the current draft to the list draft you select in a prompt. The content will be added after a checkbox. You can also create a list for a new topic from the prompt.


You need to configure the tag this action should use. To do so, edit this line in the script const listTag = "ref_list"; and replace ref_lists with the tag you want to use for your lists.


After you configured the action you can add the content of the current open draft to one of your lists. If you want to create a new list for a topic just select CREATE NEW LIST and insert the name for the list. The action will automatically create the new list and add the content to it.

To quickly open one of your lists check out the Show List action
