Back when I was using the Palm Desktop I spent the $$ for Anagram. A single license for Anagram will let you quickly turn any highlighted text into either a Palm Desktop item (task, appt, contact or note) or an Outlook item. Or both if you license it for both.Originally Posted by BigStory
I bought a single license and used it for the Palm Desktop, then converted that license to Outlook when I made the switch over. Nice utility but more useful for the Palm Desktop since it is relatively easy to drag 'n' drop into and within Outlook.
I later realized that since 95% of what I was 'capturing' to the palm were task items that I could implement a simple macro using any one of the free or commercial macro packages on the market to do much the same thing.
For a while I did just that (while I was running my outlook/anagram combo at work and still using the Palm Desktop at home). I created a hotkey macro that copied any highlighted text, launched the Palm Desktop (or focused on the window if it were already open), sent the keystrokes to open the task pane and create a new task and pasted the text into the new task. Then it was just up to me to set priority, due date and category.
I use a macro program called Macro Express www.macros.com. It is very realiable and I use it for tons of stuff... but you could use any similiar program or even a vbs script if you are handy at programming.
Hope that helps.
