Thanks Larry, I don’t really understand why a plug-in is required (seems like a basic thing to want to do) but I’ve installed it however, I still don’t see any way to select and copy/paste all the text.
I also don’t see an icon in the extensions area, how do I access it?
Do you have to select the stuff you want to export? If so, we still can’t overcome the original problem, you can’t properly select everything anymore - right?
A few years back, Asana changed titles (TAB + N instead of ‘:’ ) but afterwards, you can’t run the mouse down a full list of titles/tasks/subtasks to select everything because the titles no longer get selected. BTW this change ruined the main thing we really loved about Asana, speed and simplicity.
Does that make sense or am I missing something basic? If we can’t select everything we want to export, how do we use the plugin to export everything?
Yes, Asana2Go works on your selections, and there’s a limited number depending, usually over 100+, despite Asana’s limit of 50; ignore that warning for Asana2Go purposes.
But if you need more, then I think you could use Asana’s PDF export, then copy all from there which will 1) allow you to do all tasks, and 2) include Section titles. When you paste, you may want to paste w/o formatting for best results. That’s usually Shift-Cmd/Ctrl-v. You may need to experiment a bit with this.
Asana’s change long ago enabled a lot of other functionality, but at some expense, as you mention.
If you select four tasks that are in two sections, and use the “List - Sections/Tasks/Description/Subtasks” standard output in Asana2Go, then you’ll get the following output, which shows both section names and subtasks which is what you seem to be asking for:
I understand what you’re saying and was using the copy mode suggested but I can’t copy everything I need when a title is the first thing because it doesn’t select, and/or what gets shown in the view/copy page isn’t everything I need.
