A script to search all notes and output to a new node

A script to search all notes and output to a new node

Postby globetrotcom » Sat Mar 22, 2014 3:48 pm

Is there a script available which will search all notes in a map and output the name of containing node and matching text to either notes of a new node or open in a system editor?

Thanks

The Scripts collection contains numerous scripts that find nodes matching different conditions. Also check if filtering isn't the best way to visualize matching nodes.

If you are trying to create your script from scratch, you might also try using bits and pieces from these two scripts:
This one captures the name and note content of certain nodes: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=918
And this one pastes node info into another node: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=923
Make sure you read the threads to see what problems have popped up with the two different scripts.

Your tip helped me create the script I wanted. Actually, most of it was already there.

Thank you!
