Create a New Draft

Description

Doctor Drafts allows you to create a new draft directly from Alfred. Alfred’s text entry field is not great for entering lots of text, but if you are used to firing off Alfred to accomplish tasks and just need a bit of text capturing, this can be a handy option. It allows you to enter a string of text and create a new draft containing that text in the background.

Steps

  1. Trigger Alfred.
  2. Type in drnew followed by a space.
  3. Type in the content you want to have in the draft.
  4. Press return.

Notes

  • If you want to enter a new line, use \n; this is then interpreted to create a new line in Drafts.
  • If you want to enter a tab character, use \t; this is then interpreted to create a tab character in Drafts.
  • If you want to enter a lot of text, you would be better off triggering Drafts’ Quick Capture window.
