Plug-In: Clipboard Objects to Markdown Links

This plug-in uses the Pasteboard class functions to convert the OmniFocus objects currently copied to the clipboard, into a series of markdown text links, replacing the current clipboard contents with the markdown text.

To use the plug-in, copy the target OmniFocus objects (folders, projects, tasks, or tags) to the clipboard and run the plug-in. The contents of the clipboard will be replaced with links to the objects in markdown format:
