Export entire Entourage task list via BBEdit Apps
If you need to get either individual tasks or your entire task list out of Entourage (for example, to email to a boss), you'll find that you can't copy/paste the list, nor is there an Export option for them in the File menu.

Instead, open a blank BBEdit document, select all in the Entourage tasks list, and drag the selected block into the document. You'll get a perfect text copy of your task list. Strangely, dragging the block into TextEdit only causes one task to be carried over, not the whole list. You can drag into a blank Entourage email message, but you'll lose your line endings. Only BBEdit gets it right.

Aside: dragging individual tasks to the desktop will create Text Clippings of those tasks.

Thanks for this great hint! I wanted to also let you know that this works with TextWrangler, which is free, as well as with BBedit!
