Note Creation from a Command Line

Postby sammonsp » Tue Sep 15, 2009 10:27 pm

The ability to create notes from a command line

E.g. c:\cintanotes.exe title="Check out CN Beta 10" text="download when next online" link="" tag=todo

This would enable me to easily create (using BAT files) CintaNotes files for the many lists I have in WORD & EXCEL
E.g. my music list in Excel
E.g. my reading list in WORD
And to set up some of my standard entries by BAT files
E.g CNLINE.BAT contains c:\cintanotes.exe title="||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||" text="standard divider"
Or maybe some kind of macro or recorder could achieve the latter.

Good to see you again
I’m a heavy command line user myself, as you know; and I like your suggestion.
