This script has been specifically designed to help people working with Mark Foster's Final Version Time Management System - see for more information in depth, and TaskPaper Mac.

It allows to mark preselected tasks as worked on "little and often" and to automatically re-enter them at the end of the current list ( a project in TP ).

Either copy, paste & save the following first release script to a file named "Toggle Preselected Tasks and Move to End of Project.applescript" or download the Latest Version 120323-1 from the cloud.
