Plug-In: Clipboard Text to Drafts

This plug-in uses the Pasteboard class functions to create a new note with the clipboard text contents in the Drafts application.

The example image below shows the results of using the Clipboard Objects to Markdown Links plug-in to convert copied OmniFocus objects into markdown links replacing the existing clipboard contents, and then using the Clipboard Text to Drafts plug-in to create a new draft with the markdown content:
