Because you don't use number it doesn't write it :-)

Code: Select all

Number = 0
line:="`n`n-------`n`n" ; new line (2x) ------ new line (2x) - adjust to your preference "`n`n" will be empty line between notes

p:: 
Send, ^v
Number++
FileAppend, %number%. %clipboard% %line%, MyNotes.txt ; also inserts . after number
return
esc:: ExitApp

Was tricky but here's what I came up with! Would love to see if there was a better method to do this. :)

Code: Select all

No := 0
Reset := 0

p::
   No := No - Reset
   Reset := 0

   Send, ^c
   No++
   d:= floor(No)
   FileAppend, % d . " - " . ClipBoard . "`n", MyNotes.txt
   Return

^p::
SetFormat, Float, 0.1
   Reset += 0.1
   No += 0.1 
      FileAppend, % No . " - " . ClipBoard . "`n", MyNotes.txt
   Return


Esc:: ExitApp
Click 'p' to make a new numbered line (example: 1,2,3)
Click 'Ctrl+p' to make a sub-numbered line (example: 1.1,1.2,1.3)

Just remember that you cannot have more than nine sub-numbered lines in this script and you should be fine. ;)

Let me know if there was any complications!

Sure but it will be 1.01, 1.02, 1.03... 1.10,1.11.. etc. will that be alright? I know it's possible to change 01 to 1 but I'm not sure about that.

Anyways here is script for as mentioned:

Code: Select all

No := 0
Reset := 0

p::
   No := No - Reset
   Reset := 0

   Send, ^c
   No++
   d:= floor(No)
   FileAppend, % d . " - " . ClipBoard . "`n", MyNotes.txt
   Return

^p::
SetFormat, Float, 0.2
   Reset += 0.01
   No += 0.01 
      FileAppend, % No . " - " . ClipBoard . "`n", MyNotes.txt
   Return

Here is an example using Microsoft Word.

Code: Select all

F12::
	if (Toggle = "")
	{
		wdApp := ComObjActive("Word.Application")
		wdApp.Selection.Range.ListFormat.ApplyOutlineNumberDefault
		Toggle := 0
	}
	Toggle := !Toggle
	MsgBox % Toggle ? "Clip to Word: ON" : "Clip to Word: OFF"
return

#if Toggle
/::
	Send ^c
	ClipWait, 1
	wdApp.Selection.TypeText(Clipboard "`n")
return

.::
	Send ^c
	ClipWait, 1
	wdApp.Selection.Paragraphs(1).Range.ListFormat.ListIndent
	wdApp.Selection.TypeText(Clipboard "`n")
return

,::
	Send ^c
	ClipWait, 1
	wdApp.Selection.Paragraphs(1).Range.ListFormat.ListOutdent
	wdApp.Selection.TypeText(Clipboard "`n")
return
#If
You have to start the script and MS Word has to be open.

Then you hit F12 to toggle the script ON.

Then you highlight something and hit / to copy something to Word at the current indent level.
. to copy increasing the indent (this is the ">" key without shift)
, to copy decreasing the indent (this is the "<" key without shift)

Tested hardly any, but seems to work.

After furture thought, not that it really matters but, the arrow keys are probably a better choice.

You can change the:
/::
.::
,::

to

Down::
Right::
Left::


Or whatever keys you like.

If i copy

Code: Select all

The pharmacodynamics of cocaine involve the complex relationships of neurotransmitters (inhibiting monoamine uptake in rats with ratios of about: serotonin:dopamine = 2:3, serotonin:norepinephrine = 2:5).[59][10] The most extensively studied effect of cocaine on the central nervous system is the blockade of the dopamine transporter protein.
it will be pasted in word like this
