Yesterday we published a blog post and screencast on How to Turn a TaskPaper File into a Project Information Hub.
These networks of project-related resources will be even more useful when in the Hook window you will be able to see beyond immediately hooked items, i.e., 2+ degrees. This was requested last year and I apologize that we have not yet delivered on that. Well before covid became an issue, we started refactoring the Hook window for this and related navigation features; but then we readjusted our design and our schedule. The navigation features remain a priority.
In addition to what’s described in the blog post/screencast, one can use
Hook to New > TaskPaper document. If Hook users who are active on the forum also use TaskPaper, I’m sure they have other ways to use Hook and TaskPaper together.
There’s a related discussion on the TaskPaper forum about how to name TaskPaper files:
*.txt vs .taskpaper? - TaskPaper - Hog Bay Software Support. I followed up with some suggestions about filename prefixes … something that deserves a blog post of its own.
Whether one uses Hook or not, TaskPaper is extremely useful task management software.
If you watch the video, you’ll notice that a TaskPaper file includes a hook to an OmniFocus project. That illustrates that the two apps can be used together. More on that later.
