With text selected, 1. copy the selection, 2. create a new document in a folder called Cuts, 3. paste the selected text in the new document, 4. set the synopsis of the new document to the first 20 words of the selected text, 5. delete the selection from the source document.
I do this all the time with stuff that I want to cut but keep around - it would be great to automate it. Steps 1, 3, and 5 are all doable with Applescripts core language features. So what's needed from Scrivener is a way to create the new document and make its body and synopsis available as a target for pasting, and to switch back to the source document.
That'd be awesome!
